Paul Nelson started the company as a residential custom cabinet shop out of his garage in 1981 and incorporated the business 10 years later when employee Steve Hoff became an equal partner. Presently manned with 10 employees, the Long Beach, Calif., headquarters is now the company's fourth shop location. The 10,000-sq.-ft. building houses more than $200,000 worth of high-tech machinery, including a MultiCam CNC router that has significantly increased production volume since it was purchased in 2004.
