An affinity for the medium of wood. A love of craftsmanship. A commitment to the quality of life that comes from fine form and function in living environments. These are some of the things that motivate Brendan Mathews, master cabinetmaker.

“I like working with clients,” he says. “At its best, a project is a collaboration between the person who will live with the results of the work, and the cabinetmaker.” Consistently, clients say they enjoy not only the end results of the work, but the creative process of interacting with Brendan and his staff.

Twenty years of professional woodworking, design and installation experience give Brendan a deep and wide understanding of what is important in kitchens, custom furniture and cabinetry.

Also a popular professor at Palomar College, Brendan draws on his knowledge and experience in teaching a new generation in woodworking, cabinet making, and laminate fabrication. He likes giving back to his profession.

Though much of the work is rooted in the core skills and traditions of woodworking, Foothill Cabinetworks also takes advantage of the latest that technology has to offer. Computerized project simulation, which renders a view of what finished room plans and cabinetry will look like, gets high marks from clients.

When it comes to fine hand crafted, built in cabinets and custom furniture for your home or office, Brendan and the Foothill dedication to quality create projects that give lasting satisfaction, pride and value for many years to come.
