Millwork and reclaimed are much used terms in the remodeling industry, but does the average home owner understand what they are and, more importantly, what they will be in the future?
In brief, millwork is the term applied to the wood materials used when building or remodeling your home. This term applies to everything from the lumber used to frame the rooms to the wood trim that finishes your baseboard and windows. Architectural millwork refers to the custom wood pieces that add style to your interior design. These can include custom cabinetry, entertainment centers, built in storage units and much more.
According to Wikipedia, “reclaimed wood is processed wood retrieved from its original application for purposes of subsequent use. Most reclaimed lumber comes from timbers and decking rescued from old barns, factories and warehouses, although some companies use wood from less traditional structures such as boxcars, coal mines and wine barrels. Reclaimed or antique lumber is used primarily for decoration and home building, for example for siding, architectural details, cabinetry, furniture and flooring.”
Our in-house finishing facility is the secret behind the custom woodworking we offer our clients. Boasting 3,200 square feet and state-of-the-art precision finishing equipment, we handcraft custom cabinetry, closets, storage solutions, media centers, molding and other finishing elements.
Our founders, brothers Brandon and Marcus Palm, started in the construction industry by installing fine cabinetry and finish carpentry. They earned a reputation for quality craftsmanship, and soon began supplying custom woodworking to fine home builders throughout Florida. In 2002, the brothers decided to expand into full home remodeling and damage restoration.
Woodworking has been in the family for over a decade, and we take great pride in keeping up with the industry trends so that we consistently deliver great results to our clients.
To maintain our aesthetic goals and stay green, we use E&S Reclaimed wood tiles and Norstone Natural Stone as well as in-house finished millwork to complete remodels in environmentally and budget friendly styles.
Palm Brothers Remodeling Kitchen & Bath showroom is one of only three Naples-based showrooms that offer the E&S and Norstone products in the area. E&S is the only company that boasts to be a producer of truly reclaimed barnwood tiles.

As the first thing that your guests see when they enter your home, quality craftsmanship is the best way to achieve your individual style. Worse, if woodwork is not properly designed and constructed it can serve as a glaring mistake.
We’ve completed many remodels with a strong emphasis on the interior woodwork of each project, and in each job we’ve seen that those final details have the most impact – the wow factor – in our client’s homes. But, the price of high end quality materials was serving as a deterrent to our clients. Our decision to open an in-house woodworking facility allows us to provide high-end materials and service directly to our clients, saving you time and money on luxury projects.
Today we employ a full staff of home improvement experts including designers, draftsmen, craftsmen, finishers and installers to ensure that all our client homes get that wow-factor.
Don’t assume that a big-box home supplies retailer offers the cheapest prices on woodwork. Since we build products in-house we can offer higher quality products at a lower price than most home stores. “When someone who thinks that they can’t afford design services walks into our showroom and discovers their budget can include custom cabinetry or a built-in media center, we’ll know we’re on the right track,” says owner Brandon Palm.
In addition to saving homeowners money, using a licensed contractor helps clients make informed decisions on remodels that appeal to home buyers that are preparing to sell as well as those who are
