I just looked at your web site. Much larger operation than what we run. I see you are using Microvellum, us too but we are abandoning it. Made that decision about 3 years ago and have bought Top Solids. I don't use CAD so no first hand knowledge.

BJ, I went to your web site, midwestcabinet.com, your shop is a lot bigger than mine. Probably more automated. Wonder if we bid the same jobs?

Gotta spend money to make money. Production comes in time... We are at the phase of a large increase. Putting on a second shift and 25 more people to keep up with demand.. I'm one of the few that aren't production......

Jakobe and MidWest are two different companies that use each other. When Pizza hut, IIHOP,, Chilli's.etc call they want full service. A lot of trading between the two. I'm trying to get a commercial shop started at Jakobe.. Before I went to full furniture I was a Residential/Commercial cabinet maker for 30 years...

 

There still using glue wheels. I'm trying to talk them into RF glueing...

 

Where are you located?

"Larry ...Serious big question. Any interest in  doing commercial for Jakobe?"

We could do that. We do work for several other shops. It is shipped with their paperwork so it looks like they did it. 

Things we are best at; curved casework & moldings (straight also, we have a profile grinder and make the templates on the CNC router, including the knives for rosettes.) We have a contour bander and trimer. We thermoform solid surface, (3' x 8' oven) and are a certified commercial Corian fabricator. Doweled cases: our CNC bore & insert machine will go to 8' and our case clamp will do 4' x 8' x 900mm. We have a 5' x 10' vacuum pressing table.

That pizza lunch looks a lot like here. We serve lunch once a month for an employee meeting. Pizza sometimes other time we have it catered.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
