Hear What People Have To Say

Jim came highly recommended by a builder we had worked with previously. We presented Jim with a very challenging project. We wanted a custom rolling, folding office table with a large, hinged table drop-leaf that can be placed within our cabinet or pulled out and expanded for meetings. The trick was that we wanted the table to look seamless when the leaf is dropped and seamless when the leaf was raised. Jim's solution was to build a rounded hinge out of the tabletop’s solid walnut. He also solved the counterbalance issue of having a heavy drop leaf by integrating an elegant steel plate into the bottom frame. This was truly a unique project. Our table is one-of-a-kind. Jim's craftsmanship and eye for detail are bar-none. More importantly, I'm convinced he can make any idea happen. He thought through our list of wants and customized a piece of furniture that become a work of art. We cannot recommend Jim Farris enough.

Jim Farris Cabinets has built multiple projects for me or my firm over the years beginning in 1986. I have never been anything but pleased with his products and services. For example, in 1986 he built my desk which is a 23 foot combination desk and credenza for which even today I receive compliments from clients. He has built numerous other projects for me from bookcases to a home office desk to bathroom cabinets, etc. Jim is literally a genius with wood and materials as well as an incredible problem solver for the most difficult situations. His work is exquisite and never disappoints. I could not recommend him more! The date below is the last date of my utilizing his services. The amount is cumulative over the last 29 years.

“Jim Farris Cabinets does outstanding work.

We began our remodel with another contractor who was unable to deliver a final product. I found Jim through an internet search. I knew from our first meeting that he took his work seriously and cared about getting the details right.

Our new kitchen is gorgeous. It’s just what I, and the designers, imagined. Many thanks to Jim!!”

Jim has been building cabinets for us for about 30 years. His workmanship, precision and attention to detail are amazing. His cabinets have stood the test of time and four active kids. We keep coming back to him because no one does it better! We have used him in multiple rooms for several homes.
