Meet Tom


Tom Borland knows a successful project begins with the first meeting. After all, would you trust an “expert” who didn’t instantly set your mind at ease?

Tom's expertise shows through the quiet confidence with which he approaches each project. He poses the questions that others don’t think to ask, to get to the core of the challenges that others might not recognize. He carefully considers every detail from design to installation, then offers expert insights on how to give you cabinets that will complement your home.

These aren't cabinets like you'll find at big box stores or wholesale outlets. These are custom cabinets hand-built here in Honolulu that will last for many years to come.

You’ll know the difference—you’ll see it in the way they are custom sized for your space and in the high quality materials used in their construction.


Particle board. Melamine. Press board. These materials break down and fall apart here in Hawaii. Termites and humidity do their damage quickly.

This is why Borland Cabinetworks uses only materials of the highest quality, from termite-resistant plywood to industry-leading Blum hinges and drawer slides. A commitment to making long-lasting cabinets requires nothing less.
