The goal for Merrill Woodworking and Design is to provide beautiful, custom-built cabinets fast. In fact, with the company’s team of 30 employees, turnaround time from finalizing the drawings to installing the cabinets is just a few weeks. Owner Kris Merrill has developed a line that will cut that down to just a few days.

He says two of his secrets to success at Merrill Woodworking and Design are a great staff with low turnover and automating processes. The company keeps an inventory of the most common cabinet colors, builds everything at its facility in Rigby, Idaho, and fulfills requests for trendy colors within a few days.

Merrill stays on top of the latest technology and cabinet trends and invests in equipment and software to keep up with the high volume of cabinets the company produces for residential, commercial and multifamily customers.

He has been in the cabinetry business since he was 12, learning the art from his grandfather. Merrill and his dad, Kent, opened Merrill Woodworking and Design together 10 years ago and have watched it grow, especially as they diversified.
