cabinetry manufacture & installation

With our CNC we design and manufacture your kitchen or bathroom cabinetry with precision. Our cabinets have mortise and tenon joinery which means it is stronger than butt joint cabinetry giving you the peace of mind that you are buying quality craftsmanship. We cut, finish and assemble all of our own cabinetry, in our Minden, Ontario shop.


From granite to quartz countertops, and all of the beautiful stones in-between, we will make sure yours is cut with precision and the highest quality.  Ultimately, a choice in a beautiful stone countertop for your kitchen, bath or custom cabinetry will be a vital contributor to adding resale value to your home.  Chaulk Woodworking supplies industry leading countertop brands including Cambria, TCE, CeasarStone, Formatop.

Component manufacturing

With our state of the art Computer Numerical Control – or CNC for short – we have the ability to design & manufacture all types of wood components. From seat plates to full closet systems and everything in between. If you are looking to lower your operating costs we are here to help!  Our CNC operators take the time to make sure everything that they cut comes off the CNC with the highest quality.

Frequently asked questions

Whether you’re building a new home, renovating / remodeling or expanding your current kitchen, it can be a major project. Chaulk Design Studio professionals are here to help you every step of the way.

If you are building a new home, make sure to bring a copy of your house plans when you meet with your Design Professional.  Discussing features of your new home will help your Designer understand your design style and ensure proper flow throughout your home. Once your design is complete, we will work with your builder to determine the timing of your cabinets and schedule the installation.

Before You Begin Your Project:

1) Explore Your Budget Options
Many design options and features are available for your new kitchen at various price points. Our Design Professionals will help determine how you can achieve your dream kitchen within your budget.

2) Complete a Schedule
Timing will depend on the complexity of the design and the magnitude of the project. We can help plan the timing of your project and keep work on schedule.

3) Determine Functionality and Lifestyle
Decide what problems you have with your current kitchen and what feature you would like to incorporate into your new kitchen. Also consider your lifestyle and interests when thinking about the functionality of your kitchen.

4) Determine your Design Style
Visit your local bookstore to find inspiration in books and magazines. Search online design sites for kitchens and features that appeal to you.

5) Appliances
Decide if you will be purchasing new appliances or re-using existing ones. Visit appliance showrooms and websites to determine what appliances you will be using in your new space. The amount and size of your appliances will play a significant role in the design of your new space. The look of your appliances will contribute to the overall look and feel of your kitchen.
