Architectural Millwork's roots go back to 1969. Ron Mathews after working as a finish carpenter for many years and eventually a superintendent for a local general contractor chose to focus on custom cabinetry and millwork.

Opening the doors for the first time as Mathews Cabinets in a small rented building the company’s focus has always been quality woodwork.

In 1970 the company incorporated and to better describe the wide range of custom wood work that was offered changed the name to Architectural Millwork of Santa Barbara Inc.

We at Architectural Millwork have had the opportunity to work with many outstanding architects and contractors; we have been given the highest compliment by being invited into your homes and businesses.

Over the years the company has moved from the small rented space to a modern building. The old manual machines have been replaced with modern computer controlled machines. As new materials and technologies have entered the market Architectural Millwork has integrated them into our production process. One thing that will remain unchanged is our commitment to quality. While modern machines may enhance the production process ultimately our craftsmen employing time tested methods take what Mother nature has given us and make the custom work become a reality.

Architectural Millwork today as in 1969 occupies the corner of Nopal and Quinientos streets in Santa Barbara, CA.
