Custom Cabinet Woods

Alpine Cabinet Co. has been creating beautiful hardwood cabinets since 1968. We use only the higher grades of hardwood in the production of our cabinetry. The natural beauty of hardwood cabinets is enhanced by the unique characteristics of each piece of hardwood used in your cabinetry. No two pieces of wood are alike as no two trees are alike. The natural variations in grain and color result in beautiful cabinetry.

“Rustic” or “Knotty” woods are intended to be just that. You can experience a wide variety of knot and split sizes with more dramatic color variations, which give you the warm feel of rustic cabinetry. These characteristics are not only acceptable; they are desirable in achieving the rustic appearance these cabinets are intended to provide.
