View The NorthWoods CNC Machine in Action

Give us your eCabinet or AutoCAD file – or even a hand sketch – and we’ll prepare it for machining. With our state-of-the-art CNC machining, we work with tolerances and utilize joinery techniques that are simply not possible with conventional machining.

CNC machining also offers the precision required to ensure your products fit together perfectly, with all adjustable shelf and hardware holes, drawer slides, and hinge holes already in place. After machining, parts are labeled with the part name, cabinet number, and job name.

For those projects that require edge banding, our in-house service allows us to supply parts that are completed and ready to assemble. We’ll save you time and money by applying PVC or wood veneer edge banding – from .018″ to 3mm – to your parts in-house.


what our customers are saying…

Jim Lovejoy, Owner, Jim Lovejoy Cabinetmaker

 We decided to outsource our cabinet part machining to decrease cost and increase efficiency. Initially, I was hesitant about how effectively I could communicate our job requirements. Now that we outsource our cabinet parts to NorthWoods Manufacturing, our business has seen increased productivity and increased productivity. I’d refer them to other shops looking to outsource their cabinet part machining.”

Matthew Fauller, President, Fauller Woodworking & Restoration, Inc.

“I made the switch to NorthWoods after using a similar company for years. There are many reasons for this, but mainly it is because of their attention to detail. Every job is reviewed: questions are asked, details are clarified and sometimes mistakes are found. This gives us the security that our products will have consistent quality control. Over the years, we have developed a great working relationship with NorthWoods. So much so that I often feel they are not a separate business but a division within my corporation. There is no doubt that NorthWoods Manufacturing has been a factor in the continuous growth of my business, and will continue to be so for years to come.”

David Beaulieu, Beaulieu Cabinetry

“We are a modest shop, a little old school. We are not automated in any way. As a result, we used to process materials the old-fashioned way. That is not a bad thing all of the time, but when there is a better way to accomplish something without compromising quality, why not go after it? My favorite part about working with Bill and his team is their willingness to be supportive of us and our business. Regardless of the request, they are 100% behind us. Bill is a “cards on the table” kind of person. He is always willing to advise on manufacturing and materials, plus he is a team player. He understands what it’s like operating a small shop and is there to help in any way he can.”
