Wood Chizel

Fine Custom Cabinetry


Locally Crafted in St. Louis, MO


McMillan Cabinetmakers has been designing and hand-building cabinetry and woodwork for the finer residences of the St. Louis area since 1987. Our experienced designers and craftspeople are adept at traditional and contemporary styles, and work in a wide variety of woods, from classics like cherry and quarter-sawn white oak to exotics like wenge and Swiss pearwood, to fresh new alternatives like caramelized bamboo. Every one of our jobs is different, and many incorporate unique embellishments such as turnings, carvings, decorative glass or metal screen, louvered doors, or curved panels.

To make St. Louis’ finest cabinets, we work with the finest materials. We source hardwood lumber from responsibly managed domestic sources, and select it for grain, color, and stability. We choose formaldehyde-free plywood and sheet materials, as well as adhesives, and use recycled cores whenever practical. We assemble cabinets one at a time, and hand-fit each door and drawer. In short, we build cabinets the right way.

But what really makes our woodwork stand out is the finish. Our expert wood finishers excel in creating authentic traditional effects and finishes, using durable, modern and safe materials and methods. Matching colors and effects is no problem either, so if none of the many samples in our showroom meet your needs, we can create one that does. (And it’s not as expensive as you might think!)

Our shop and showroom are centrally located in Brentwood, Missouri, at 597 Hanley Industrial Court. We’re always happy to have visitors, so please call us to arrange a tour!

The McMillan Team


The skilled members of our small, close-knit team of experienced craftspeople each brings a love of the craft to their work. Each has an area of expertise – be it moldings and millwork, metals and glass, casework assembly, or finishing – and all have a commitment to fine joinery and construction normally seen only in heirloom furniture. It’s a commitment that shows in the details of every McMillan cabinet.

Our architecturally trained designers have many years of experience under their belts, not only at the drafting table but in the workshop, and – as avid cooks at home – in the kitchen as well. This practical knowledge of both the craft and the function informs our creativity, and explains why our projects stand the test of time. Trends come and go, but sensible functional design never goes out of style.
