JWH Designer Series Custom Cabinetry

The construction specifications of the Designer series were developed by Jennifer Howard to meet the specific demands of our JWH Clients and to ensure long lasting cabinet quality. Our Custom Cabinetry is built in our own MILLSHOP in central Pennsylvania. Every cabinet, molding and detail designed by Jennifer Howard and the JWH Team, is drawn with our 3-dimensional architectural software with precise calculations. Specializing in the latest technology for the fabrication of high quality custom cabinetry, with the care and precision of true craftsmen, every cabinet is built like furniture. Each beautiful cabinetry finish—whether a hand-wiped stain, solid paint of any custom color, hand-applied brushstroke, antique glaze, or the “wow” of high gloss acrylic finishes — is formulated for the individual job to offer the Client a truly custom-designed look. Every custom cabinet is thoroughly inspected by a cabinet specialist before being wrapped for transport and installation in your home.

Unlimited custom stains, paints, glazes and other finishes, including our exclusive “brushstroke” technique and “weathered series” woods, as featured in the House Beautiful Kitchen of the Year 2017.

Although we also offer “primed only” custom cabinetry for field-applied paints/stains, we strongly recommend our specialty commercial-grade finishes (applied in our millshop) for the best durability and long term quality. This is particularly critical in Kitchens and Baths.

Our Custom Millshop is committed to meet or exceed all recommendations for environmentally responsible cabinet manufacturing, including FSC woods, low emission chemicals, and an acclaimed recycling program for finishes.
