Custom Cabinets

Fully customized cabinets can be very expensive, and take a long time to manufacture, making them too costly for many homeowners. At Forever Cabinets by Kendrick, we knew there had to be a better alternative, which is why we manufacture custom cabinets without the sky-high price tag.

You might ask, “How do they do it?”

First, we build every cabinet out of sustainable American hardwood and 7 to 11 ply plywood, not particleboard or medium-density fiberboard (MDF). Solid wood offers a measure of durability and beauty that you simply will not get with these and other waste-wood materials. Second, we build our cabinets with a number of impressive features that you would have to order (and pay for) individually from just about any other big box manufacturer. Dovetail joints on our drawer boxes, knobs and pulls, full-extension drawer hardware – these features are standard on all Forever Cabinets by Kendrick custom cabinets. By standardizing certain features, we are able to keep our labor costs low and pass the savings on to you, our customer.  Our cabinet company is a division of Kendrick Forest Products therefore much of the overhead is shared by the companies, which allows us to offer services not available at many custom cabinet manufacturers.

Every one of our custom cabinets is handcrafted in Iowa, built by employees who care about the product they produce and take pride in building cabinets.  They are cabinetmakers that are skilled in all aspects of solid wood cabinet fabrication. Whether you need kitchen cabinets, bathroom cabinets, or cabinets for any other room or purpose, available design options include:


  • Wood species – Choose from among several sustainable species of wood such as walnut, cherry, maple, hickory, oak, and other types of wood, all harvested locally, milled at our state of the art lumber mill, and dried in our kilns.
  • Door style – We offer a large variety of door styles, in any size.
  • Stain color – Make the beautiful wood grain of your cabinets stand out with one of our many eco-friendly stains. Solid-color paints, glazes, and dyes are also available.


Many may think that solid wood cabinetry with so much customization costs a fortune.  On the contrary, our custom cabinets are price-competitive with other major cabinet brands sold at the big box stores, ours are sold directly to the customer.
