Get your cats to unwrap and install your Catsbinets!
We deliver your cabinets to your home, but you need to find your own cats to help you un-wrap them. Before that can happen we’ll get you started on the process. Firstly, as a build to order cabinetmaker, we can offer a nearly limitless variety of woods, finishes, and detailing. Each of our projects is unique, created to fit a client’s needs and taste as perfectly as it fits the space.
Secondly, our experienced designer know how to take your ideas and make them a reality. Find out more about our designers on our website. We offer design services if you are just getting started with the schematic design for your project. Or we can take the basic layout from your Architect or Designer and flesh out all the details. No mater where you are in your project we can walk you through each phase of the process.
Why built to order cabinets?
Moreover, the word “custom” is used pretty broadly in the cabinet industry to describe cabinet lines with limited materials, colors, and door styles. But at McMillan, we believe the word “custom” means more than a few choices. That’s why we prefer to call the work we do “built to order”
Cats really do like our cabinets:

We source hardwood lumber from responsibly managed domestic sources, and select it for grain, color, and stability. Our plywood and sheet materials and adhesives are formaldehyde-free. We use recycled cores whenever practical. We assemble cabinets one at a time, and hand-fit each door and drawer. In short, we build cabinets the right way.
But what really makes our woodwork stand out is the finish. Our expert wood finishers excel in creating authentic traditional effects and finishes, using durable, modern and safe materials and methods. Matching colors and effects is no problem either, so if none of the many samples in our showroom meet your needs, we can create one that does.

Add value to your home
McMillan cabinets are hand built using high quality materials, so not surprisingly, they are not the cheapest cabinets on the market. But our pricing is actually quite competitive with the better factory-made cabinet lines, even though we’re making them one at a time. We sell our cabinets directly to you or your builder, avoiding the extra layer of expense built in to the dealer showroom system. Meaning, when you buy from McMillan Cabinetmakers, more of your cabinet dollar will go directly into the cost of producing your cabinets, and less into the cost of selling them to you.
