Shiloh vs. Grabill cabinetry
CKD sells both of these lines, but does a lot more in volume with Grabill and would clearly much prefer to sell us this line. Grabill is considerably more expensive than Shiloh, not just in base cost, but in things like, inset, and some distressing and glazing add-ons are upgrades on Grabill, where they're standard on Shiloh. At the end, the Shiloh bill would be much cheaper, I THINK, without sacrificing quality. I need cabinetry that's rather heavily distressed, as we are building a rustic Spanish kitchen. From what I've seen, Grabill's capabilities in finishing with heavy distressing and glazing is significantly better, but who knows....
Species: will probably go with Hickory because of durability and open-grain, which with painting, would look rather rustic.
Looking for any advice out there relative to these two brands.
