Our approach to custom cabinet construction is deeply rooted in our heritage and the techniques passed down from generation to generation.

As a custom luxury cabinet manufacturer, we also have the flexibility and capabilities to accommodate any specifications your project might entail.

It all starts with your vision
At Cabinets by Graber we are committed to providing you with the highest quality custom luxury cabinets and exceptional customer service. Our goal is to turn your dreams of handcrafted luxury cabinets into a reality. From design to installation, we will work with you step by step to make the custom cabinet ordering process as straightforward and interactive as possible.  On behalf of all of the families at Cabinets by Graber, we thank you for considering our cabinets and appreciate the opportunity to serve you.

The following is a step by step process explaining the overall ordering, approval, and installation processes.


The overall design and style of your custom cabinets reflects not only your personality but greatly enhances the overall feel of your home.  While designing custom cabinets may seem like a difficult task, by working in conjunction with you and your designer, we can make this a process as smooth as possible.  During the initial design stages, your Cabinets by Graber representative will work together with you to determine your cabinet and door style, wood selection, finish type and accessories. During this process we encourage you to keep an idea folder containing pictures, drawings, and any other inspirations that will help assist you in the design process. This will be useful in understanding your style and general preferences.

Confirmation/Ordering your cabinets

After your custom design is complete and you are ready to order, you will be required to endorse a written agreement as well as place a 50% deposit for the purchase of your cabinets.

Additionally you will need to provide the following information during the confirmation process.

  • Endorsed Agreement
  • Deposit
  • Desired Delivery Date
  • Appliances- Manufacturer & model numbers
  • Sinks-Manufacturer & model numbers
  • All accessory selections

*Delivery and production dates may be affected by changes made after final approval

Field Measure:

Once the final framing configuration is in place, your builder or a Cabinets by Graber representative will come to your home for an exact measurement. This will ensure the accurate calculations and dimensions needed for proper installation.


Typically, your first set of production drawings will take a minimum of 2 to 4 weeks. These sketches will be used to produce the CAD drawings required to produce your cabinets. Our design and layout team will produce CAD production drawings modified to the field measurements taken from your house. After approval, these drawings will be used in the shop to construct your cabinets. It is vital that you respond to questions from the layout team in a timely manner or your delivery and production dates may be affected.

Final Approval

Final CAD drawings will be reviewed and changed if needed. Any changes to these drawings must be made before your cabinets go into production. After final approval, expect your cabinets to be delivered 4-6 weeks from your last revision. Once your custom cabinet order is processed, any changes made during production will result in additional cost and a delayed delivery date.

Building your Cabinets

After final approval, CAD drawings and sketches are sent into the shop for production. The manufacturing and assembly process usually takes only a few weeks to complete. After this time, your custom cabinets will be ready for delivery.


At delivery time, a Cabinets by Graber representative will contact you to confirm a delivery date and time. After arrangements have been made, to ensure secure shipping and handling, our delivery team will carefully package and transport your cabinets using our own trucks. Upon delivery you will be required to pay the remaining 50% balance.


New home builders and remodeling contractors generally have an installer they prefer to use. If you need a local referral, we will share any regional contractor’s names we have worked with in the past. Occasionally we have requests to bring our team in to perform the installation. Your Cabinets by Graber representative will review additional charges for this service.
