LANCASTER, Pa. – The Cabinet Makers Association held a one-day regional educational event of CMA member shops the day before Wood Pro Expo.

The group visited Lancaster Cabinet Co., a maker of high-end custom cabinetry. The company uses an elaborate finishing technique, and does a lot of intricate work without CNC equipment.

At Keystone Wood Specialties, visitors saw an impressive production facility for doors and drawer boxes with a variety of interesting manufacturing techniques.

The CMA group also saw Kitchenview Custom Cabinets. This is an Amish family business. All equipment operates using hydraulics and they produce their own electricity with a diesel engine and solar panels. This company is also going through lean transition.
