OUR HISTORY

Since founding Handmade in 2002, we've specialized in the fabrication of fine custom furniture and cabinetry for the home, office and retail space.  In January 2011, we launched Semihandmade with the goal of offering the same Handmade craftsmanship to a wider audience at a lower price. We're able to do this by customizing doors, panels and drawer faces for IKEA cabinets.  Since then, we've proudly faced over 500 kitchens in the US and Canada (that's not including bathrooms, closets and media units)!

WHY IKEA?

First and foremost, quality; it's hard not to be impressed with their sturdy cabinets and Blum hardware.  Second, flexibility; unlike other major cabinet manufacturers, IKEA lets you buy their kitchens without doors and drawer faces. Lastly, price; even with Semihandmade doors, you'll easily save 30-40% on the cost of a typical custom kitchen.
