We received a tip that Manhattan Cabinetry was a good source for custom bookshelves as well as custom cabinetry for living rooms, offices, bedrooms and kitchens. We have not used them yet, so we're all ears.
Started in 1976, Manhattan Cabinetry "offers full service custom building of just about any type of furniture." This means that if you want to do something more interesting than melamine laminate in your closet or home office, these folks can build and install it. They also build housings for Murphy Beds as well as radiators.
NYMag says: "Highly Recommended" and "Everyone was friendly and helpful and the prices were reasonable."Other Locations:
