They will be nice as pie, but after you have paid for your cabinetry and its delivered, they don't know you. I received my VERY expensive wall unit with severe damage from the shop that I have to look at every day. Heaven forbid if you have an issue with their work.

Made my New York 5th Avenue Apartment a Home

Having built many homes I know how important it is to find special artists who can make the finishes on the proper standard with the property's worth. I was introduced to the Little Wolf Cabinet shop by one of New York's top designers who also completed my Hong Kong and Cayman Island homes for my wife. New to New York we wanted the Apartment to be a real home. The scope of work contracted was floor to ceiling mahogany finishes throughout and custom cabinetry and dressing rooms as well as a library and wine cellar installation. Apox 5300 sq ft. Every detail was perfect in design and fabrication with solid woods and veneers. For finishes they brought in specialists for each application and environment. By far the Little Wolf cabinet shop is one of the most professional vendors we ever hired to complete our homes. To those who know high-end work we can give our full support to these fine cabinet makers. It was a real joy working with the owner Mr. Wolf and his staff.

Little Wolf Cabinet Shop is one of the finest cabinet makers in America

Little Wolf is one of the finest cabinet makers in the United States. We bought a 3 bedroom apartment on East End Avenue in New York City and Mr. Wolf is a true gem. He turned our project into one of our most satisfying architectural projects in our lifetime. Each room had a separate theme, some in mahogany, maple, anigre and poplar with combinations of woods used also. His initial drawings and creative insights were better than any firm that competed for the project. More important the finished product in each room was exact, perfect and the work of true artists. We greatly appreciated the way Mr. Wolf and his son John worked with our marble and granite fabricators to assure that the bar we built and the bathrooms and kitchen areas that used stone we done the right way. We were given expert advice on who to use for specific finishes of certain woods and everyone he recommended did a very professional job. We spent 6 figures with Mr. Wolf and it was one of the best investments we made. His work is truly ART. Every person we have sent to him has also had nothing but praise.
