Custom Woodworking + Construction Services

"Masterful cabinetmakers, custom woodworkers..."

Jonathan Ward - ICON 4x4, Los Angeles, Ca.


"My contractor chose this company to design, build and install my kitchen cabinets. I wasn't sure what I wanted except I knew I wanted a modern all white kitchen. Josh listened to me so well that he was able to produce my dream kitchen! He was patient, kind and always reasurring. He really wanted me to be happy with the results which is why he was able to be so patient with my indecison. And I was thrilled with the results. His wife, who works with him in their company, is a sweetheart. There couldn't be two nicer people to work with. Josh can do anything in any style"

Patricia - Ventura, Ca.


"Thank you so much for our new bathroom.  It's remarkable in many ways...Both the experience and finished space are testament to Able & Baker's quality, integrity, and love of design."

Andrew - Woodland Hills, Ca.


"We are extremely happy with the ladder, it's exactly what we wanted.  It looks absolutely gorgeous, and is a stunning piece of artwork on display when we enter our loft...We'll treasure it forever."

Renaud - San Francisco, Ca.


"Love Love Love the iron work and (sculpture) that you did for me..."

Jamie - Los Angeles, Ca.


"My husband and I were VERY happy with the service and craftsmanship provided...did an amazing job, kept the house clean, and was a pleasure to work with.  What a find!  I look forward to our next project. "

Kathy - Agoura, Ca.


"Outstanding! I've worked with many contractors before and I rate Josh at the top. I built my own custom home (so I think I have more experience and construction knowledge than the average consumer) and I had Josh and his crew build something for me. He is professional and has pride in his work. He aims to please, understands and follows building codes, and he will do it right the first time. I would not hesitate using him on my next projects. Thanks!!"

Michael - Santa Rosa Valley, Ca. 


"Just a note to say I have spent the whole afternoon filling our beautiful new closets.  I am thrilled with them..."

Lynn - Thousand Oaks, Ca.


"Excellent work from a very reliable, visionary, professional and reasonably priced finish carpentry craftsman. They built a lighting enclosure for my kitchen taking a vision that was in my head and making it a reality in my ceiling -- great work, will definitely use them again for my next project."

Philip - Thousand Oaks, Ca.

"It's wonderful!  I guess you know half the fun is seeing the book spines that were selected, and you really hit the jackpot there.  Very funny and very apt at the same time!  Great titles!"



"Just wanted to let you know the 'book box' arrived today and I love it! It looks great on the bookshelf in my office - so much so that I'm looking now in your store to find another. Thanks for such a unique and wonderfully made item."



"Just got my library bin, I love it!!! Thank you so much for doing the custom order, can't wait to get another one."




"I look forward to buying more items from your shop!! I really appreciate the extra customer service, you just don't find that often nowadays."




A poem from Karen, the proud owner of a custom Modern Library Storage Bin...

"I am here to testify

to what I can't deny

The reason why

I have no alibi . . .


For the smile on my face

For the whimsy in my place.


I have to place blame

I feel no shame

My library box came

Now I'm not the same . . .


For the smile on my face

For the whimsy in my place.


Wish I were Able

to label

Greatness of Baker

The maker . . .


Of the smile on my face

And the whimsy in my place!"
