    Looking for recommendations for a cabinet maker to make some fitted bedroom cabinets preferably within the greater Dumaguete area.

    There's a carpenter shop in Sibulan, which, according to the activities, has a load of orders, so most likely good quality of work. To find the place, turn off the North Highway @the Tubtubon sign. Follow the road after a left curve and about 1 km or so you will find, cannot miss.

    :hmmm: I would have recommended my man BUT after his last job I will not. The problem here is that good men get overloaded with work and start to cut corners then employ others that just do not cut anywhere near the Original man, For me, choose a man that just wants to do his trade at his own speed and give satisfaction, they are about. Like many things it is best a Boots on the ground thing, Talk to your neighbours, usually someone will know a good guy that is not Greedy. Talk to the Timber guys at stores etc, they have a list of names to call on once you tell them what you require making :thumbsup:

    Also in Sibulan, turn right (coming from Dgte) and go past the front entrance of the church towards Cangmating. About one-half km on the right, working on the bank of a stream, you will see (and perhaps hear) the fellow and his work in progress. He recently made a nice bookcase for me. You may need an interpreter.

    what kind of cabinets; furniture or utility?
    solid wood or plywood?

    i've built a few, mostly custom kitchen and entertainment centers and can advise if you're interested.

    these guys can build anything.

    We bought a very heavy-duty, well made, bed frame from a little shop in San Miguel (left hand side of the road past Bacong). It is located just after a bunch of white highway post that look like part of a bridge). From the outside it does not look like much, but they have showroom, and good workmen. Willing to do custom designs as well.
