Product Offerings

CMS does not offer a 'product line' of cabinetry. We are a custom manufacturer starting with product design engineering through site installation and all points in between with a mission focused on project management. Over the years, we have branched into specialty finishes incorporating metal work, glazing, acrylics, polymers and other specialty products into our design and manufacturing experience.

If it can be manufactured and installed at the level of quality expected, CMS can provide it. It's that simple. For us, satisfaction = reality – expectations, so managing the expected component of equation is a very critical function we attack early in the process.

  • Coastal Millwork is an AWI-QCP premium-certified millwork contractor and can provide AWI-QCP fabrication and installation certificates and labels for all QSIs.

General Information

We are a certified Corian fabricator and installer with over 5,000 square feet of floor space dedicated to solid surface and laminate countertop production. We fabricate and install any type of solid surface and composite countertop. To conclude our package, we have partnered with the best stone material fabricator/installers that understand our schedule demands and quality requirements.

We have working relationships with 3 Form and other specialty material providers that we often incorporate into our projects.

In addition, we specialize in the manufacture and installation of 32mm European style cabinetry or custom architectural interior cabinets and millwork elements, custom match finishing of all finish types, and standing & running trim (profile replication available).

From conceptual ideas and drawings all the way through installation, we take pride in providing a complete, one stop resource for our design and construction partners.

We offer design and engineering services for Architects, Interior Designers, and Owners. We use the latest version of Microvellum, the most sophisticated Auto-CAD based design/manufacturing software available, which includes the entire AWI commercial library and links directly to our CNC and other production equipment during fabrication. This means that our shop drawings are exactly what are being produced. Our manufacturing process is supported by our LT-55 Precision Laser Template System, allowing us to fabricate at the highest degree of accuracy and field compliance.

We provide our products and services in South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama. We have completed over 100 architectural wood work projects with contracts upwards of $2,300,000.00.

Transparent & Opaque Finishes

Finishing is one of the most critical processes in the wood working business. High end finishes, whether opaque or transparent, follow distinct rules and a strict process all of which require a high degree of discipline to achieve. Contrary to popular belief, ‘finishing’ is not applying paint or a stain but rather a series of skilled tasks performed in a properly maintained environment that achieves the following goals:

  • Ensure post manufacturing surface blemishes are identified and remedied per AWI standards
  • Ensure the wood is properly prepped and stable
  • Ensure finish compliance, durability, and longevity
  • Ensure the completed product equals or exceeds AWI specifications and standards
  • Ensure the finished product consistently matches the approved finish sample within AWI standards

Our custom finishing process always begins with submittals, both veneer and lumber, created by Coastal Millwork on the wood species required for that project. If it is at all possible to recreate a finish or achieve a desired look, Coastal Millwork can create it. We use an outside source to chemically identify a finish match and color spectrums of a specific wood species.

All of our finishing experts regularly attend advanced training classes in order to excel at glazing, toning, shading, spray coating, distressing, and staining.

We specialize in lacquers, acrylic, pre-catalyzed and post-catalyzed conversion varnish, water borne, and urethanes.

Our opaque lacquer finish work has been labeled ‘superior’ by nationally recognized interior architects.

We also offer pre-finishing for trim and panels when requested.


Coastal Millwork offers the most skilled and professional installation teams in the country. If it is a high end veneer wall panel system or plastic laminate cabinets, you can expect the highest level of installation available regardless.

Our goal for every job is ‘No Punch Items’ which is achieved 85% of the time, even on large projects and fast schedules.

Every aspect of our installation process is performed per AWI standards and all of our install crews are regularly book tested on these requirements.

We also take pride in representing the General Contractor while on the job site by exhibiting the highest standards of professional behavior.

We offer install services for our products and the products manufactured by other companies. No job is too large or too fast for our teams at CMS.

Trim & Moldings

Coastal Millwork and Supply is a premium millwork manufacturer and installer. We can accommodate any configuration or design of standing and running trim, rails, and board paneling. Our manufacturing and installation processes are designed to exceed AWI specifications and constant quality control in the plant and in the field ensures we exceed expectations.

We have hundreds of profiles available and can create any custom molding desired in radius and flat stock. In addition, we also specialize in existing profile replication and historical work.

We almost exclusively prefer and recommend solid woods as a paint grade and stain grade trim species for the best stability and appearance possible. However, we offer MDF in limited profiles and sheets. We will accommodate any specific request if feasible.

Plastic Laminate Cabinets & Countertops

In 2007, Microvellum software and the entire AWI commercial casework library were implemented into our system, along with the ability to customize within seconds. This allows us to achieve one of the highest plastic laminate casework production capacities in the Southeast. Our plastic laminate cabinet production is 100% Auto-Cad driven utilizing bar code readers at every pod. This eliminates operator subjectivity from the process and increases production rates by 50% over the traditional construction rate.

We have strong plastic laminate supply relationships with every plastic laminate manufacturer in North America and Europe which means product selection is never a problem (though lead times are subject to availability).

Currently we are capable of manufacturing up to 80 finished cabinets in one shift without effecting our countertop and architectural millwork production. This allows us to meet the schedule of large projects even when the constraints are increased due to other construction trades.

We specialize in 32mm European flush overlay cabinets but also offer face frame construction when specified.

Doweled construction and 3mm edge-banding (if available) is utilized to ensure durability and longevity.

Post-form and traditional countertops are offered in any shape and size. (See Stone & Solid Surface Tops.)

Wood Cabinets & Countertops

For wood casework, we utilize the same construction methods and processes as our plastic laminate cabinet construction. With our Microvellum software, high capacity equipment, and plant orientation, we can fabricate wood cabinets at a very high production rate compared to traditional AWI compliant shops. We offer any door style and box configuration desired with virtually no limit to the wood species available. When combined with our high production finishing department, you can expect premium wood cabinets on schedule.

Our large vertical lay-up rack system for wood tops facilitates high volume, high quality production.

Sheet Paneling & Wood Veneers

Veneer Panels are one of our favorite offerings. We provide every core, edging, veneer cut, and match (leaf & panel), and finish available. In addition, we have partnered with North America’s premier veneer suppliers to ensure the highest grade veneers anywhere. From exotic lay-ups and sketch boards down to the standards, we can provide virtually any veneer lay-up and finish. We specialize in concealed fastener installation and use laser templating in both layout and install. (See Panel Wall Assemblies.)

Stone & Solid Surface Tops (certified)

Coastal Millwork and Supply is a certified Corian fabricator and installer. We also fabricate and install any type of composite top requested. We have raw material supply relationships with every major solid surface material provider and a large number of the new recycled, LEED friendly suppliers as well. Our ability to fabricate our own solid surface tops eliminates a third sub-contractor and allows us to better control our schedule obligations.

In addition, we have strong partnerships with a number of premium granite and silestone fabricators and can incorporate either of these products into our scope of work.

Panel Wall Assemblies

Coastal Millwork offers both plastic laminate and wood veneer wall panel assemblies. Any type of panel edging and reveal backing can be incorporated to meet your desires. Our LT-55 Laser Template System and field install lasers eliminate variance in the reveals over the wall plane. We can provide wall panel assemblies on flat, radius, single or multi-planed wall surfaces and often glass and metal features are integrated into these assemblies.

Rail & Stile Doors/Store Fronts

Custom doors and store fronts are one of our true specialties. From concept design to installation, nothing displays a standard of high quality like a properly fabricated and finished custom rail and stile door. We take great care in coloring and grain matching related components so that every door looks like a work of art. Any custom glass or raised panel design can be incorporated into the door system as well.

We also offer door installation and wood frame fabrication for doors provided by others. Subsequently, we provide flush doors and pre-hung jambs at competitive costs.

Additional Services

Coastal Millwork and Supply LLC has created a network of building product suppliers to compliment our cabinets, casework, and millwork offering.

Our goal is to offer turnkey projects where the products available maximize the value without compromising capability.

In addition to our products, we can competitively supply and/or install the following products:

  • Exterior & Interior Pre-Manufactured Doors & Pre-Hung Frames
  • Interior Columns – Wood & FRGB
