Choosing a Cabinet Design

Recently, we had the task of designing cabinetry for an Asian inspired home. The home is full of unique Korean wood lattice and Japanese shoji doors that will take your breath away. It was important to take those elements and incorporate them into the cabinetry.

Tea House

In thinking about cabinet design, it’s important to keep the style of your home in mind. Today, inspiration abounds online and it will be easier to narrow down your favorites if you can think beyond, “I like that” and incorporate “I like that and it will suit my home.” Of course, our job is to guide you along that journey. If you’re building or remodeling, please consider visiting our showroom. We offer free consultations and quotes. It would be a pleasure to work with you.

For all the Asian inspired cabinetry photos, please visit our Photo Gallery {Kitchens, Bathrooms, Laundry Rooms, and Built Ins}. Here are a few Kitchen teasers, enjoy.





Pamer Kidani’s New Kitchen {Before & After}

Pamer Kidani came to us through a friend who had recently used Jay’s Custom Cabinets to remodel her kitchen in Kona. She had thought about her kitchen remodel for many years and was very specific about her needs and expectations. Keeping her budget in mind, we talked about various bamboo options and she settled on Carbonized {Amber} Bamboo with exposed edges. The new look is very streamlined and modern with an extremely comfortable vibe. We hear she loves it and if you’ve had the pleasure of meeting Pam, I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. She’s thrilled, but so are we for having such a wonderful customer. It’s been a real treat!

Without further ado, I bring you the “Before & “After” photos.

{That’s what you really came here for anyway right? That’s what I thought!}

East Hawai’i Cultural Center

The East Hawai’i Cultural Center is operated by the East Hawai’i Cultural Council, a coalition of organizations and individuals dedicated to preserving cultural, creative and traditional arts in Hawaii’i. Their purpose is to foster community involvement with culture and the arts; and to coordinate activities and resources among East Hawai’i arts and cultural community.

Events are made possible in part by support from the State Foundation on Culture and the Arts, the Hawai’i Country Department of Parks and Recreation, Culture and Arts Section, but the main support comes from the public.

Roseanne McQuire has demonstrated her community support by instructing a Keiki {Child} Woodworking Workshop every Friday, between 3:30pm – 4:30pm, at the Center. In the class, designed for children 4 years  and up, children learn how to work in a safe environment learning tool safety, how to follow directions, and opening their minds to endless creativity.

We had the pleasure of meeting Roseanne as she hunted down material for her class. She was extremely gracious as she humbly asked for support, in the form of our scraps, which we were happy to gift. In fact, we don’t have much to do with all the hard work she bestows on our local children other than continually saving workable scraps for the children, which she picks up regularly. However, she kindly sent us these wonderful photos as an act of gratitude. Good job, keiki! Your projects are inspiring and we’re so proud of your hard work!

If you are interested in joining the fun, please contact the East Hawai’i Cultural Center for more information.

Let’s talk, Bamboo

The topic of bamboo wood has been surfacing more and more at our shop. It also seems the flat slab, squared edge doors are rising in popularity. Those two facts have brought about a wave of interest in bamboo cabinetry. Due to interest, I’d like to show you 3 main options and explain the unique process of darkening bamboo, naturally.


~As it states, this is the natural color of bamboo.


~By definition, carbonized means, to convert into carbon typically by heating or burning. In this case, the bamboo is heated to a beautiful Amber hue. No stain has been applied.


~The bamboo has been heated to a deep dark chocolate. It is very unique to have a wood this color without a stained finish. No stain was applied.

Our bamboo panels are 100% renewable bamboo material, made from 100% natural Moso bamboo.

Currently, we are manufacturing cabinets in chocolate bamboo, for the very first time as it is a relatively recent process. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the outcome, so far. I will certainly be sharing the finished kitchen in our gallery, pending approval from our customers. For now, let me show you the unfinished doors and finished sides of a few cabinets and the pantry unit.

The kitchen will be stunning.


FINISHED CHOCOLATE BAMBOO – Finished cabinet sides

What’s so great about this material is that it’s darkened naturally and has a very simple vertical grain that is very, well, bamboo. For more information on using environmentally friendly wood products for your home’s cabinetry, please contact our office or visit our showroom.

Dramatic Remodel

This home was beyond the point of needing a remodel. It was in terrible condition and not suitable for healthy living.  A wonderful son decided to treat his elderly mother to a kitchen she deserved. We were very blessed to be part of making a dramatic change for a sweet woman and her simple kitchen.

STONIUM, Silestone Series

We would like to introduce a new series of Silestone Quartz, Stonium. Stonium was inspired by the earthy hues found in organic minerals along with the natural movement of stone. This line brings forth the perfect blend of functionality and beauty. As with all Silestone Natural Quartz products, Stonium Series is naturally non-porous and never needs to be sealed. It is easy to clean and has high scratch, stain, and heat resistance. Silestone also is proven to be a cleaner and safer countertop. It offers a unique combination of built-in antimicrobial protection that safely fights the growth of odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew along with the assurance of GREENGUARD certification for clean air quality, and National Sanitation Foundation Certification (NSF 51) for safe food preparation.

Now for the fun part.

Come see them for yourself at our showroom, only a 10 minute drive from Hilo.
