We are hoping to get roll out shelves installed in our kitchen. I saw one place on yelp (rolloutshelves.com) that had 5 stars but they're located in SF (we live in Oakland) and also had 6 'filtered' comments, which may be an issue. Has anyone used rolloutshelves.com? What was your experience? Anyone have any other recommendations? Thank you! Sandra
Do you know a talented cabinet maker/finish carpenter who has some decent design skills as well? I have an idea about a great built-in bookcase and homework area for my kitchen but need someone with the design and building skills to make it really work. Reasonably affordable is a bonus. skh
I want to have some wall cabinets installed and I need a good reliable carpenter. Would be great if they could give me some ideas too. Laura
We are seeking a carpenter/custom kitchen cabinetmaker to build and put doors on our open cabinets in the kitchen and bathroom. We have called most of the names already on the BPN list and most are either too high-end (we don't want a whole remodel/resurface job) or won't do our ''unorthodox'' kitchen. (We have existing wood cabinets and we JUST need someone to measure, build, and install custom-sized doors on them.) We need someone creative and professional. Any recommendations out there? Thanks very much! Jillian
We need to have a cabinet built to match our existing ones. Anyone have a recommendation for a good cabinet maker? claudia
We are remodeling our kitchen and need recommendations for a professional cabinet maker. We have the architect's plans and would like to get several bids for good quality and reasonably priced quartersawn oak cabinets. The archives don't have any recent posts, so I was hoping that someone had a current recommendation. Email me or post to the digest. Thanks, Elise
During a recent earthquake retrofit my house's fireplace & hearth were removed. I hired Everwood Cabinets to make an Arts & Crafts cabinet to match the glass-door cabinet (5 panes per door, 2 doors per cabinet) beside the fireplace and to fill the space between the cabinets with open shelves. They also put new floor boards where the hearth bricks had been. The new cabinet, shelves and floor are beautiful. I recommend Charles Ferguson and his assistant Rich for custom cabinets.

Darren Dizon is a great cabinet maker and skilled craftsmen! As a designer/faux finisher, I have brought him in on several projects for my remodeling clients who have been incredibly happy with the results! My clients are then finding more things for him to tackle because he's a good problem-solver and great artisan as well. Give Darren a call at 707-373-0468. Laura
I want to highly recommend our cabinet maker, Paul Murphy. Paul has done many projects for me over the past several years. He built all of our kitchen and bathroom cabinetry and has built several pieces of beautiful furniture. He works in wood, laminate, and steel. He can do everything from basic shelves to intricate garden gates and creative furniture. His rates are very reasonable, he is professional and a pleasure to work with. He can be reached on his cell: Paul Murphy: 510-693-1868 jennifer
This could apply both to the person looking for someone to build a bathroom cabinet and the person looking for a cabinet maker to built a banquette, since we have used John Mercer for both and he did a *splendid* job. He built a large built-in banquette for our living/dining space that is not only a total show-stopper (absolutely gorgeous white oak w/ sliding doors for storage), it's so well built and rock solid that my husband jokes about it being additional quake retrofitting for our house. John also made the our bathroom cabinets -- very simple paint grade wood which also turned out just great. He may not be the cheapest guy out there but I doubt you could get a better level of craftsmanship (he's kind of a hoot, too). His workshop is in Berkeley, his # is 510-524-3354. Lovin' the Cabinets
In response to the request for Reliable & Reasonable Carpentry, i.e. kitchen cabinets.. (i couldn't tell from your post whether you are looking for cabinets to be made, or a carpenter to come to home to do repairs. My recommendation pertains to the former, not the latter.) I can whole-heartedly recommend Karl Heuken who has custom made our kitchen cabinets, our bathroom vanity, and built in stereo cabinet and under-the-stairs cabinets.

I'm looking for someone to build a small cabinet to hide away my tv. Everything I see in the stores requires the monster tv I am not interested to own! I'd appreciate some recommendations.Thanks. adene
This is to respond to the folks who got short shrift at IKEA: I had a vanity and bathroom cabinet custom-built at a very reasonable price by H&H Cabinets in Oakland, off 880 at Fruitvale. You can see their sign from the freeway. I needed something to fit an unusual space, and the owner, Gary Hazelhofer, was responsive and reasonable. I would imagine IKEA would be cheaper, but I don't mind paying for some individual attention. H&H doesn't do super high-end cabinets, but they're not cheapie, either. Worth a call. Wendy
This is an unsolicited post to recommend a woodworker who just built a handsome custom bookcase/cabinet for us. His name is Armand Forster. Armo does all kinds of woodworking, from high-end cabinetry to simple shelves to stair railings to... you name it. He's been building his own home in the Oakland hills for the past ten years, so you can check out what he's done there with his floors, kitchen cabinets, doors, etc. if you want some idea of what he's capable of. I think he does great work! darcy
We are looking for recommendations for a cabinetmaker or carpenter who can construct some small built in benches for our kitchen. We don't want to use cushions, so we need someone who's pretty good at designing and building a comfortable, higher-end product.
