    Dear Tim,
    We are thrilled with our two new chests of drawers!!!! They are stunning and totally make our bedroom cohesive, serene and like a photo in Architectural Digest. The quality is outstanding and the professionalism of everyone involved, both in scheduling and service, was amazing. We appreciate ALL your talents and efforts. Thank you so very, very much.

    PS: Did we mention that the quality of our new dressers is outstanding?? we cannot believe how you took our old dressers and made new versions that are so superior to the old!!!!! Again, thank you so very much. We cannot believe our good fortune! The Stripps
  • From Kevin:
    When we decided to remodel our kitchen we went to the big box stores to get a plan and look at their cabinets.  At the advice of a friend we went to Al's Cabinet.  It was a family owned business of 40 plus years with an impressive wood shop.  We scheduled an appointment at our home and they worked with us on a plan.  It was a challenge because our kitchen was only 11 feet wide and my wife wanted an island as well as a pantry.  After many changes we settled on a design with cherry cabinets.  Since they custom build they made several examples of stains until we got the dark rich cherry look my wife wanted.  They also had a new quartz counter top that we both liked.  Installation was timely,  precise and professional.  When the counter top company came to measure they were delighted at the installation of the cabinets.  Everything was exact which they said they seldom see.  The biggest surprise to us was that the bottom line was significantly less than the quote from the big box stores, and the quality was far superior.  We did have one issue with a drawer not closing properly.  They came right out and make a small adjustment.  My definition of a good company is how they respond to me after they have been paid.  I want to say "Thank You" to all the family at Al's.  I'm glad I took my friends advice and I hope you do too.

    To Tim and Everyone at Als,
         I saw our check for final payment cleared the bank and it prompted me to write this email it was money well spent.
         We cannot say enough about the professionalism of your company and the craftsmanship of our cabinets.  Your entire team helped us make some tough choices during the design process and the precision and ease of the installation was astounding.  We are thrilled. 
         I especially want to thank Tim for helping me with the layout its a dream kitchen with the placement of the stations making cooking, cleaning, and food preparation a breeze. 
         You made it possible for us to host Thanksgiving for our family for the first time in years we extend a special thanks to you and your families. 
  • From Bonnie:
    ...Our kitchen is beautiful -- your brothers did a wonderful job!  ... My kitchen is truly something to be proud of!  I'm so glad we chose the maple wood!  It is a warm, mellow wood.  I do love it.
  • From Dick and Sally:
    We are so pleased with our new cupboards.  Thank you so much for a job well done.
  • From Bud and Verdie:

  • From the "M" family:
    We are so very pleased and very satisfied with your new kitchen.  I never in all of my life have met such a nice family and who care so much about their work.  Your pride comes shining through.  Thank you.  Thank you.  Thank you.
  • From D and B:
    Once again your company deserved our sincere thanks for standing behind your product.  Our cupboards are beautiful!  They're just a bit darker than the first group but still lovely.  And we both feel they're even more special because of the extra width.  No one could have a more lovely kitchen than we do.  We so appreciate the meticulous workmanship.
  • From Lois:
    Max and I want to thank you for the lovely work you did at our home.  His desk and shelves are just wonderful!  Max is very pleased.
  • From Mike and Kathy:
    All of the cabinets and counter tops look better than what I anticipated.  We appreciated the care taken in installing all of it.  We would highly recommend your business to anyone.  I am glad that I was bold and outrageous to go with a not-so-common counter top.  It looks like granite.  Much appreciation from some very happy customers!
  • From Martha:
    Thank you for the fine service and job.  Hope to do business with you in the future.
  • From Laura and David
    To the wonderful people at Al's Cabinet Shop -- Thank you for helping us to design a one - of - a kind home.  Your expertise and creativeness allowed us to use our imagination and truly express our personalities!  It was a great experience to work with all of you.
  • From Ray and Kathy:
         We would like to thank you for the wonderful kitchen you installed for us in September.  Everyone who walks in the door cannot believe this is the same house.  It is just as we pictured it.
         You took the time to listen to what we wanted, show us how things could work, and came up with ideas to make everything work together.  Your craftsmanship of the cabinets is superb.  The richness and the color matches our china hutch.  I know why there is such a long waiting list, now.  But the results are worth the wait.

         To Jerry (who thought we lived at the shop) who was so helpful in getting the color and looks that we wanted.  To Bill who took a roughed in room and made it sound and look like a kitchen.  To Len and Tim (who on top of everything else had to put up with the cat) who made the dream come to life.  In addition, to everyone else who played a part in bringing this project together -- THANK YOU!
  • From Scott and Karen:
        Thank you so much for creating such beautiful cupboards!  We must have the best looking laundry room in the state!  Our kitchen is perfect!  Bathroom, too!

         We especially enjoyed working with Bill, who is consistently patient and helpful!

  • From Pam:
    Thank you -- You did a great job!  We're very pleased.
  • From Cyndi:
         Today a gentleman delivered my order that I had placed last Thursday.  Although what I had needed was very small, the courtesy and service were just as though I had a big job.
         I regret that I do not remember the gentleman's name that I talked to when I phoned, but I would like to say that he also was so courteous and attentive to the particulars that I was trying to explain that he made me feel that I wasn't a "bother".  Let me tell you, being a woman and trying to order something, whether it's a car part, or a replacement glass for a door, is oft times quite a challenge and you get the run around from some men who think you don't know anything.  I wasn't treated like that at all from either of your gentlemen.
         And then, I would like to say "thank you" so much for the piece of Formica I needed; for when I asked for the charges, there weren't any!
         I told the gentleman who came to the house that you were still getting "a lot of mileage" (in praise) for the counter top job you did a few years back for me.  Now I have even more cause to recommend your company.
  • From Paul:
    I'm very pleased with the promptness, service and quality of work your cabinet shop provided.  I will call on you again in the future for sure.  Thanks!
