Smith & Vallee Woodworks Process

How we work with clients

We encourage our clients to visit our shop or showroom for a free initial consultation. Bring your floor plan and ideas. For clients with complete designs, we offer free estimates and an opportunity to see products in progress as well as raw materials for future projects. For clients who do not have a design, we offer design and consulation services. After a design has been established we give a firm price based on that design in the form of a bid. Once our bid is accepted, a 50% deposit is required to commence the project. All of our projects are custom built in our shop.

How we build

Our cabinets are custom built for you. The cabinet boxes are made from 3/4 inch plywood - we never use particle board. Our woodworkers carefully match the grain on all doors and drawer faces, creating a harmonious look throughout the room. We build our drawers using high-quality soft-close hardware. The wood is then finished with three coats of a natural, hand-rubbed oil finish. Finally, a top coat of wax is applied to increase water resistance and durability.


Working with us is a simple, creative, and efficient collaboration. From your first free consultation, to the interactive design process, to the installation of your project, we offer personal service that prioritizes your complete satisfaction.

CUSTOM EXPERIENCE. We offer our clients the unique opportunity to visit our shop and select the lumber for their project. You can chose the species of wood for your project from our large selection of sustainably harvested lumber. We obtain the finest material from as close as our backyard to as far away as South America and Africa.
