Transitional Cabinet Arlington Virginia

    We design and build custom cabinets and cabinetry that are as lovely to the touch as to the eye. Balance and proportion, clean details, velvet finishes: The signature characteristics of built-in cabinets and wall systems from the Dowell Company.

We are Master Cabinetmakers and Finish Carpenters serving Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax, Falls Church, Great Falls, Leesburg, Loudoun and surrounding areas in Northern Virginia since 1989. 

Fine woodworking at its finest.  

We have even traveled to other states outside the Washington DC Metro area to install our custom cabinets and fine furniture.   

One of our clients moved to North Carolina.  He sent us dimensions and we built a custom bar similar to the one we had built for him in Alexandria.  When he moved back to Alexandria into a new town home, we built another bar, along with many custom bookcases and window seats. 


Custom Bar Alexandria Virginia

We have traveled to New York City, Connecticut, North Carolina, Annapolis, and Norfolk for our clients. 

Built in Mudroom Arling

Many times we begin in one room, like a fireplace cabinet in the living room, and over the years build custom cabinetry and furniture throughout our client's home:  libraries, entertainment centers, mudroom cabinets, window seats, closet systems, home officesbuilt-in beds and reading nooks, desks and dining tables and other fine furniture.

 Custom Designed Built-ins  are literally Wall Furniture: furniture designed and built for your space with the function, style, and finish that you choose. 


We work with you through the design process to make your space work functionally, aesthetically and economically.  We give you a fixed price that fits within your budget.  After the design and contract process we build and finish your cabinets in our shop.  Then we deliver and install the cabinets we have built. The same cabinetmakers design,  build, and install.
