The Process

Taber & Company’s custom woodwork, cabinetry and furniture starts from the ground up, milling old growth hardwood that is reclaimed or salvaged. Milled and kiln dried on site allows John to select the most characteristic slabs for each piece. Handmade in Arizona from start to finish.

Taber & Company is passionate about creating pieces that are based on authentic craftsmanship and joinery, expressing the character of the wood and bringing life to the design. One of the few custom wood workers and cabinet makers in the nation, still hand crafting without automation and with minimal machinery. The labor intensive practices result in one of a kind pieces made exclusively for each client. Creating the finest custom woodwork and cabinetry, using solid hardwoods, in-house custom blended wax and their signature hand forged iron hardware.

Taber & Company delivers each piece beyond expectation.

Desert Highland Golf Club Project

The custom woodwork for the Desert Highlands Golf Club includes a solid mesquite wood bar that is 33 linear feet long with a true 6″ thick top. The moldings and panels were hand carved and specifically designed for the project.

The 33′  handcrafted bar was custom designed and built in three pieces and methodically joined  to simplify installation and remain  true to the hand craftsmanship.

Authentic Handcrafted Cabinetry and Furniture

The 6″ solid wood bar top is made from a single log, European dove tail jointing pays homage to authentic old world craftsmanship. The wood was custom milled to achieve the massive scale.
