Timepieces Specialty Cabinetry & Millwork
Scott Hinton installed commercially made cabinets in our galley kitchen. The small space and poorly squared walls of the room made the project more challenging. Scott consulted with us frequently, making suggestions and necessary adaptations. For example, he knew how to correct one unforeseen problem by substituting a different kind of hinge which would allow two cabinet doors the clearance they needed to open and close. Also, his skill in precise measurement enabled him to fashion a seamless wrap-around counter top. (The original plan had called for seaming, but Scott expertly made it one piece). The final professional touch was the perfectly mitered molding he made running along the top of the cabinets. His design--superior to the one offered by the cabinet manufacturer--created depth to the finished project. Scott also constructed and painted a two-drawer, double-door bathroom vanity for us. The cabinetry he designed complemented the ready-made sink and counter top we purchased. In all, we were pleased with Scott Hinton's workmanship as well as his work ethic.

Q & A
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?No, it seems that different types of jobs need to be priced differently.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I think everybody tries to " Feel Out " new customers I`m no different, I`m fairly easy going but not by any means a pushover. I have No problem doing a few 'extras', but don`t be one of those homeowners that asks for a ' Thousand Favors ' and not expect to have to pay for them. I try my hardest to treat my customers with the up most Respect and Dignity and only hope I`ll be treated the same way.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have an Associates Degree from Delhi College, but most of my training came from on the job training. I started out doing custom trim work, and did that for many years for alot of Custom home builders in the Saratoga area. In doing this I`ve Installed hundreds of kitchens. Saratoga went thru a phase for awhile where I built many of the bars in the downtown district. I took a job out in Syracuse building cabinets and display cases, I did that for about two years but got tired of the monotony and got the bug to move back home. When I returned home I was introduced to an " Old School " Cabinet Maker who took me to a hole new level of Cabinetry and how it was to be built. I owe him for the most of my education at least the cabinetry end of it. After working with him for a few years he moved to Hawaii, and that is when I started running my own shop. I still contact him now and then just to talk shop or bend his ear with a question, he`s a good man
