Quick and to the point, these will give you a brief overview of who we are and what we do...

In a nutshell, what does Crown Point Cabinetry offer?
We handcraft some of the finest quality, all-wood custom cabinetry in period styling, for the kitchen, bath, or other room, available directly from us.

Is it true Crown Point doesn’t have dealers?
That’s correct, we do not have dealers, nor have a dealer network! We sell direct from our cabinetmaking facility here in New Hampshire to all 50 states, Canada, Europe and beyond!

How does one go about purchasing your cabinetry?
Couple of ways:

1. We can work directly with you and your building professional! That’s right, you can buy direct! We will design, build, and deliver directly to you.

2. E-mail us a check (Just kidding!)

What wood species can my kitchen be crafted in?
We offer Cherry, Wild Cherry, Clear Pine, Knotty Pine, Maple, Plain Sawn Red Oak, Quartersawn Red Oak, Rift Cut White Oak, Quartersawn White Oak, and American Black Walnut. Our Vintage Collection of lumber is available in Reclaimed Ash, Reclaimed Chestnut, Reclaimed Eastern White Pine, Reclaimed Elm, Reclaimed Hickory, Reclaimed Oak, Old Growth Eastern White Pine, and Old Growth Heart Pine. Examples are on this page.

What about your drawer boxes?
Our drawer boxes are solid 5/8″ Walnut dovetailed all four corners, with 1/2″ Walnut plywood bottom. Any interior drawer component (for example, cutlery dividers, chef knife dividers, spice ramps, etc.) can also be made of walnut.

Where can I learn how your cabinet is constructed?
Right here, on our Cabinet Construction page! We have details about the different box constructions, as well as links to our face frame construction.

What is the average lead time?
Due to current unprecedented demand, our lead time is running 20-22 weeks. As such, because this is handcrafted custom cabinetry, we have had to extend our current lead time to April 2022 delivery on all new Crown Point orders. For the most up-to-date info, please contact us directly, via email or phone: 800-999-4994.

What is the average price of cabinetry in a Crown Point kitchen?
Crown Point builds no average kitchens in cost or quality. But, to help provide a budgetary guideline, our cabinetry for most kitchens can be acquired in the $40,000 to $50,000 range. Yet, it is not uncommon for clients to invest $60,000 to $75,000. Projects that involve other rooms such as pantries, libraries, baths, entertainment rooms, etc. can run considerably more depending on scope of project.

That’s great! But what are the steps necessary before an order is placed?
Here’s a brief overview: One of our talented in-house Design and Sales staff works with you, designing your kitchen, bathroom, office; wherever you desire cabinetry in your home. A deposit is placed, and the delivery slot assigned. After custom building your cabinetry, delivery is made, and at the same time, we collect the balance due.

Do you charge a design fee?
Yes, there is a design fee, fully credited upon purchase of cabinetry. It is $500 or 1.5% of the estimated cost of the project, whichever is greater.

Is anything in stock, are there any “seconds”?
Being a custom cabinetmaker means that no cabinetry is built until an order is placed, therefore, there are no seconds. Or thirds. Don’t even ask about fourths.

How is the cabinetry delivered?
Your cabinetry is blanket-wrapped and shipped on a specialty furniture carrier.

Where is Crown Point located?
Our one and only facility is located in Claremont, NH. Please see our contact page for mail, phone, shipping, and e-mail information. Directions can be found here.

How about door styles and finishes?
Crown Point creates a variety of door styles and finishes, enabling you to live with the design elements and kitchen layout that fit your lifestyle.

What type of joinery does Crown Point employ?
Where appropriate, mortise and tenon, and dovetail.

What about warranty?
We believe so strongly in our craftsmanship that we warranty your cabinetry for ten years! Not one, or three or five–ten!

How do I care for my cabinetry?
Check out our Care and Cleaning page! It addresses how to take care of your cabinetry, minor repairs, and even moisture control.

Does Crown Point make a full overlay door?
Yes, we offer a full overlay door, quite popular with our Contemporary line!

Where can I see your cabinetry up close?
Because we only sell direct to you, there are no distributors. We have a beautiful showroom right here at our facility that you are welcome to visit. You can watch our showroom video here, or call us and schedule a visit.

What about countertops?
When that question gets asked, most people are referring to the countertop that goes into the kitchen proper. Generally speaking, those countertops are made from something other than wood (granite, stainless steel, solid surface, soapstone, etc.) and those products are not available through us.

Does Crown Point install the cabinetry?
No, we don’t. The builder/remodeler/homeowner does the installation. Many of our rave reviews come from the people doing the installations: “The cabinetry fit perfectly!”, “Your cabinets installed like a dream”, “My contractor was very pleased that your cabinetry fit so well!”.

Exactly what type of finish does Crown Point use?
We offer a large variety of rich stains, Acromapro Paint and Milk Paint. For complete details, please see our Finishes page.

If you have a question not answered here, please ask us, either by email or by phone!

March 30 Update:

Crown Point Cabinetry has been deemed an essential business by the Governor of New Hampshire. As such, we are in business, crafting cabinetry and taking on new orders. While we continue to operate, we are taking all necessary precautions to keep our entire team safe. In order to limit face-to-face interactions, our showroom is not open to visitors until May 4th, 2020. In the meantime, see our virtual shop tour here.

If you have a project you would like to discuss, please give us a call. We are here to help!
