I lost my house in the Thomas Fire three years ago. I'm in the process of rebuilding my house. My architect/general contractor recommended Able and Baker for my cabinetry.
The rebuilding process is never easy coupled with the fact that I have to manage my budget carefully because of issues with my insurance payment.
Josh partnered with us on designing cabinetry to meet our house design. I have unpredictable work schedules and he is flexible, meeting me on nights and weekends. I love that the design process is collaborative. He provides me with options and takes my budget and deadlines into consideration. I highly recommend his products and services.”

We had custom cabinets designed for our newly built home. Josh and Jen were great ! They listened to us and showed us samples which made it easy to choose our cabinet material and design. The completed kitchen has exceeded our expectations! All the while getting to talk with Josh and Jen and many of their crew has been a joy. These cabinets will last for ever!”

A BIG THANK YOU to Jen & Josh and their team. They did an amazing job helping me to have a beautiful kitchen. I cannot say enough positive things about them…

Able & Baker…designed and installed our new kitchen cabinets, kitchen island, hutch cabinet for dining area, laundry room/bathroom cabinetry, and lighting, hinges, hardware, pulls, drawer inserts and more. They listened carefully to me and my husband, made great suggestions for design, products, and finishes, and worked closely with our architect and building contractor team to create a unique, durable, budget-conscious, eco-friendly look for our brand new "mid-century mod"-inspired house in an older neighborhood of our small beach town. Great attention to detail, very personal hands-on service, low-stress and easy to communicate with by phone/text/email. Highly recommended!

It's great to support a small local business that provides terrific service and a high quality product. Having a small condo kitchen, A+B came up with a creative design to maximize storage with a fresh new look. The fit and finish of the cabinets are excellent.”

Josh is a master craftsman and a wonderful person whom I would not hesitate to hire again. I turned to Josh as an outside consultant on a high end cabinetry project that was going off the rails. Josh's wise and patient counsel helped get things back on track. He also designed and built a phenomenal rolling pedestal base for a water dispenser for that project and made numerous post-installation adjustments and tweaks that were invaluable. Josh will be the first person I call with any future cabinetry needs and I recommend him 1000% for any cabinetry project that others might have. Thank you Josh and Jen!”

Just a note to say that I have spent the whole afternoon filling our beautiful new closets. I am thrilled with them..."

It has been a pleasure working with you. Both of you have made the process very easy and enjoyable. We appreciate all the hard work and great collaboration. We are extremely happy with the final product."

After an initial meeting with Josh and Jen, in my clients Architectural office, we were convinced that Able + Baker were well equipped for the project that lay ahead. It was a Mid-Century Modern single family residence that was being completely revamped. The homeowners, He an Architect and She a Designer / Builder, both had a very discriminating eye for detail. The design of the millwork and cabinetry included some very tricky details that Josh was able to engineer and fabricate. Installation of the Kitchen, Media Room, Master Bathroom and Second Bathroom was completed on schedule and with personal attention to details. I could not have found anyone more suitable for this project and as easy to work with then Able + Baker. I look forward to working with them again.”

Masterful cabinetmakers, custom woodworkers...
Jonathan Ward | ICON 4x4
...we knew they'd be a great fit for our project. Josh and Jen got back to us right away to discuss the scope (a custom planter room divider piece and a large shelving unit specifically made to hold a record player and vinyls). We shared photo ideas of what we were looking for, and they came back with a proposal that included everything we wanted, plus their own creative ideas for making the pieces even more special. They were extremely professional and responsive. They even came to visit our house to get a feel for the space, which I really appreciated. The finished products are beautiful and exactly what we were hoping for! We would definitely recommend Able & Baker and would love to work with them again for our future projects.”

Able and Baker ... did a fantastic job renovating the kitchen in my historical Eichler home. They designed cabinets that are both highly functional and durable, but are still true to the original mid-century style. The quality of the work really shows particularly in the matching and staining of the birch paneling and cabinet fronts. I was so lucky to come across the Ganzhorns and their talented team of carpenters and wood finishers. They even managed to finish the project during the devastating SoCal Thomas Fire, working through the Christmas holiday! I look forward to working with them on future renovations!”
Liz D. | Eichler Home, Thousand Oaks
I love our kitchen! The cabinets are beautiful and very good quality. It was so nice to have a personal relationship with the people who were actually building our cabinets...Josh was able to come up with great solutions for our space. Able and Baker are responsive, timely, and stayed true to the quoted budget. I would highly recommend them to anyone!”

We found Josh and Jen through their incredible custom work on vintage VW vans. We needed large custom built-in bookcase / media center and a bench with storage to fit a wonky corner. Josh and his team showed attention to every detail of the fabrication process and we couldn't be happier with the final pieces. ..Their work was of such high caliber that we immediately stopped looking for the "perfect table" had them build a custom one. Stayed on budget for both projects..For the level of craftsmanship, the attention to every last detail, and the solid and beautiful millwork--could not recommend Able + Baker more highly. They can beautifully make whatever you dream up, and probably have a lot of solutions to whatever issues your particular space might bring.

Josh listened to me so well that he was able to produce my dream kitchen! He was patient, kind and always reassuring. He really wanted me to be happy with the results which is why he was able to be so patient with my indecision. And I was thrilled with the results. His wife, who works with him in their company, is a sweetheart. There couldn't be two nicer people to work with. Josh can do anything in any style.

Renovating my house was probably one of the most stressful experiences I’ve ever encountered. And then there’s Able and Baker who came and created our dream kitchen and changed my perspective on renovations. It was still hard, but with their execution, guidance and professionalism it made everything worthwhile. On top of being excellent in their precise craftsmanship, they are creative. They are willing to come up with new design ideas and not stay in boring box. I highly recommend them to everyone I know.”
Gloria F. | Los Angeles
We've had Josh make several pieces of furniture for us and are about to embark on a major complete kitchen renovation with him in the coming year. He's a true craftsman, a consummate professional, and a really nice person. What more can you ask from an artist/contractor...? No one is better at doing what Josh does than Josh. Hire him.

I wish I could give them 6 stars (Maximum # of stars on a Houzz review is 5 stars!) Josh and Jen did an amazing job on our mid century modern bath vanity and tall cabinet. The design process was fun and the finish product was awesome! Their prices are very fair and the quality of work was terrific. I will definitely be working with them again
Willy R. | Los Angeles
The BEST cabinet company to deal with very very professional people incredible craftsmen work will only use them for future projects and remodel Best kitchen and closet design and best quality”
Shahe K. | Ventura Keys
I’d heard about Able and Baker a couple years ago and admired their work and work ethic. When it came time to create my dream kitchen, I was excited to hire them and had high expectations. Able and Baker more than delivered! Josh Ganzhorn instantly understood the vision, and suggested the wood, materials and products to bring it to life. It only took a few iterations with him to find the sweet spot between a gorgeous design and cost. His suggestions for providing maximum storage while keeping an open flow were spot on. Josh invited me along to select the wood panels, it was great to be part of the process and help decide the best pieces for my own kitchen. Josh even incorporated into the design some much-loved waffle glass panels that were original to my midcentury house.
The installation was detailed and thorough, with careful attention to ensure all cabinet doors and drawers were exactly aligned across bottoms and tops, and that they functioned flawlessly. Our kitchen has slate floors and post-and-beam ceilings, so it was tricky to have all the edge pieces sit flush with these uneven surfaces. But they took the time and executed it perfectly. The quality of the cabinets is solid and the finish of the wood is gorgeous.
The kitchen has elevated the experience of the house. Able and Baker created a modern kitchen packed with warmth and soul, and my husband and I couldn’t be happier.”
