Period-inspired cabinetry from Colonial to early 20th century, handcrafted in Maine, using authentic joinery and details.

At The Kennebec Company, we design and build period inspired cabinetry for every room for homes all across America. Every project is custom designed to be in perfect harmony with the home and with the lives of those who live there. Cabinets are hand crafted using select grades of premium woods, traditional joinery and hand applied finishes, with meticulous attention to every detail.

Our specialty, since the very beginning, has been period-inspired cabinetry, meticulously crafted using traditional techniques, blending historical sensitivity with contemporary utility. We are well versed in architectural styles from the seventeenth to the twentieth centuries.

Our men and women who design our kitchens and build our cabinets are the proud inheritors of centuries’ long traditions of skill, patience, and integrity that was required in the building of the world renowned ships here on the shores of the Kennebec River.

When you look at our work, you won’t find the ornamentation that is often used to cover up poor quality or inferior wood. Our cabinets are built with a timeless, understated simplicity, in much the same way that fine furniture has been crafted for hundreds of years. By reducing unnecessary decorative elements, the spare simple elegance of the craftsmanship reveals itself. And it is the appreciation of the simple quality of the work, the beautifully matched, hand finished, wood grains and the purity of the design that will, to paraphrase the words of the hymn, free you, at least for a while, from the hectic whirlwind that is life in the twenty-first century.
