Our design-build process allows our clients to communicate and guide the design process at every step.


Inception Woodworks is a team of Traverse City, Mich. craftsmen and designers who have worked together for more than 12 years. We collectively have more than 60 years in the business, and we're equally committed to building the highest quality custom cabinetry for discriminating clients across the country.

Our company is a small but growing operation that strives to provide our clients with 4 simple things:

Quality, Craftsmanship, Value and Service.

We love what we do and we do it well. Our detail-oriented process ensures you'll receive a piece your family will be proud of for generations to come.

We work with homeowners, contractors, designers and architects. Our process is different for each, but the result is the same. Inception Woodworks thrives on giving our clients exactly what they want. We pair our design skills with our clients’ vision, and together we produce timeless results. Our work will continue to add value to any built environment for generations. We create heirloom pieces and built-ins that perfectly augment a space, giving our clients pieces they treasure for years.

We work on a wide variety of projects. No project is too big, too small or too distant. We have shipped our work around the country, and we have provided pre-vis models to clients as far away as Tel-Aviv.

Custom work costs money. There, we said it. But when you hire our expert craftsmen, you'll receive a piece that's worth every penny and built to how YOU want it, not how some manufacturer tells you how you should have it.

Bespoke cabinetry is an old world term meaning "built to the buyer’s specifications." That actually says a great deal. Most consumers are shopping for cabinetry and furniture based on the specifications of the manufacturer. We invite you to participate in the process and learn how our technological innovations and outsourced component manufacturing have made true custom-made cabinetry available at a price that was previously impossible. The best way to understand the quality and craft of our work is to see it.

Please take a moment to browse our portfolio and see the difference for yourself. We take pride in the stylistic range and diversity of our projects.
