About Us


Mike n Pattie-300

There’s a wise principle I have learned to embrace in life,

“Do not despise the day of small things.”

Cornerstone Cabinetry began as a small dream in my heart as a high school student working as an ‘after-school’ shop-hand in a large commercial cabinet shop in the early 80’s.  It was my first minimum wage job.  In those early years, I also worked with my Dad to build our new family home.  I remember the gratifying feelings of accomplishment and satisfaction of building and creating things with my own hands.  Working with my Dad in an environment that always smelled like wood brings back pleasurable memories.  Little did I know at that young age, I was cultivating a love for craftsmanship and wood working that would spur me on, years later, to apprentice with a local cabinet maker where I would further develop my craft and love of cabinetry.  It was there that I picked up and further honed my skill and love for design and beautiful furnishings for the home.  Not long after, I made the leap to start my own custom cabinet shop and in the Fall of 2009, Cornerstone Cabinetry became a successful reality of that simple and small dream I had as a teenager.

Today, Cornerstone is providing beautiful custom cabinets for homes all over the Puget Sound region.  We specialize in both traditional and contemporary styles of cabinetry and offer custom finishes as well that make every job we do a center of attraction in every home.  We use all wood products and only the newest and best of cabinet hardware and amenities in the industry.

More than just custom cabinet maker, I am a father of four and a grandfather of two and have been happily and faithfully committed in marriage to my best friend and high school sweetheart for 25 years.  Life is full and always meaningful and God is good…. always and at all times!
