If you have found yourself here on our Millwork Shop Drawing Samples Page – it means that you have an interest in working with Superior Shop Drawings. For that, Stephen and I would like to sincerely thank you. We look forward to working with companies like yours and hope to become an extension of your team.
When we speak with potential customers, there are typically three questions that are always asked. We are happy to answer these questions (and any other question you may have) in an effort to be as transparent as possible. We feel that good communication is paramount to building a solid working relationship with our customers.
- Do you have Sample Drawings?
- How much do Millwork Shop Drawings Cost?
- How long does it take to produce Millwork Shop Drawings?
In the past we have posted Sample Shop Drawings with limited data redacted for customer privacy. As our catalog of Residential Drawings grows, we feel that increased privacy is necessary across the board. For this reason, we have removed all job specific data from the project title blocks in our samples.
Below we have broken out our Samples by Category – Including Residential, Commercial, and Miscellaneous. Each project includes a summary and a portion of the drawing packet for your to look over. If you have any questions about a specific project, please do not hesitate to contact us.
All Sample Drawings were produced by Superior Shop Drawings utilizing Superior Shop Drawings Drafting Standards and Strong Drafting Fundamentals. Please note that the samples below are updated periodically to showcase recent work.
Residential Shop Drawing Samples
Residential Projects are a small but growing segment of our customer base. These drawings are often completed for small to medium sized Custom Cabinet Shops that specialize in High-End Cabinetry and Custom Kitchens. The most enjoyable aspect of these projects is that they are one-off designs that require us to utilize our experience in the business to bring a concept to reality.
John Doe Residence
The John Doe Project was a Upstate New York Residence that we had the pleasure of working on in January 2020. As a residence goes, this was a rather large project that consisted of thirty-one rooms. Spread throughout the home was a mix of Stained Rift Cut White Oak and Painted Cabinets.
The portion of the project that we would like to share with you is the Kitchen. Here we have three areas that consist of a Range Wall, Appliance Wall, and Island. The bulk of the custom cabinets feature Rift Cut White Oak (1/8″ Veneer laid up on an MDF Core) with Metal Accents and Stone Counter Tops.
Jane Doe Residence
The Jane Doe Project was a NYC Residence that we had the pleasure of working on in late 2019. This project was fairly small but very unique. The Architect / Designer had an old school vibe and provided a number of impressive drawings that were all done by hand.
The portion of the project that we would like to share with you is the Dining Room Cadenza. This unit was designed to fit into a curved wall and featured Ziricote Veneer Cabinets with a Metal Top.
The Smith Project was a California Residence that we had the pleasure of working on in Early 2020. This project was rather large at twenty-five rooms and was a mix of Stained Oak and Painted Cabinets. Unlike many residential projects, this one came with very limited detail. We worked closely with the Custom Cabinet Shop to determine what would be presented to the Architect for both Design Intent and Function.
The portion of the project that we would like to share with you is the Hall Cabinets. This unit was designed to function like a bank of personal lockers. Each locker included an upper storage cabinet, an open shelf, two coat hooks, a bench seat, and a deep drawer for shoe storage.
The cabinets were made using Stain Grade Oak Veneer (1/8″ Veneer over an MDF Core to allow for V-Grooves) and Solid Wood Ship-Lap Back Panels.
Commercial Shop Drawing Samples
Custom Architectural Millwork for Commercial Applications makes up the bulk of the work we do here at Superior Shop Drawings. Often times the complexity of Plastic Laminate Casework is less of a challenge than efficiently managing the project to meet Customer Submittal Deadlines.
We take great pride in producing Shop Drawings that we are proud of. This includes providing our customers with realistic delivery dates for projects of all shapes and sizes.
Warren Memorial Hospital
The Warren Memorial Hospital in Washington DC is the single largest Commercial Project we have done to date. It consisted of Plastic Laminate Casework and Reception Desks in several hundred rooms spread throughout the facility. We completed this project in Mid-2019 over a span of eight weeks and three phases.
The portion of the project that we would like to share with you is one of the Staff Areas. This are included a Reception Desk with Radius End. An aspect of this desk that was a little different that usual was the placement of a hinged access door in the die wall. This was used to route electrical and data lines as well as conceal outlets.
Over the past couple of years we have had the pleasure of working on a number of Hotel Renovations. One of the more recent Hotel Projects that we’ve done was La Quinta in Georgia (Late 2019). This was a medium sized project that consisted of Plastic Laminate Casework and Wood Trim in the Public Areas of the facility.
The portion of the project that we would like to share with you is the Reception Pods – located in the Hotel Lobby. These small Reception Desks were made up of a Plastic Laminate Die Wall with Wood Accent Trim and Stone Counter Tops.
St Elizabeth Ann Seton
The St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Project was a Church Renovation in West Virginia. We had the pleasure working on this project in February 2020.
What made this project a little more involved than the average Commercial Project was the amount of Custom Millwork that required detailing. While the footprint of the project may have been small – a lot of work was packed into the space.
Miscellaneous Shop Drawing Samples
From time to time, a potential customer will contact us and ask for Shop Drawings that are outside of our area of expertise. We stress that we specialize in Millwork Shop Drawings, however, we are open to other opportunities. These opportunities come with a major caveat – we do not claim to be [Insert Your Non-Woodwork Trade Here] experts. We are happy to discuss taking on your project but please expect a learning curve and plenty of questions.
Below are a few sample projects that fall outside of our normal range of expertise.
One of our earliest customers is an Architectural Millwork Company that has a strong focus in the hospitality space. After successfully completing a number of projects for them, they approached us about doing Shop Drawings for a Sister Company which produces Commercial Windows.
While this was a bit of a learning curve for us, we were able to work together with this company to build a Window Catalog. We’ve grown that catalog over the past year which has allowed us to provide Shop Drawings for several dozen facilities across the Southern United States.
Bernard Haber Houses
In early 2020 we were contacted by a Masonry Contractor that required Shop Drawings for a Commercial Project. Like us, they had never been asked to produce Masonry Shop Drawings before – so there was a learning curve all around. “We normally just show up and built it – this shop drawing thing is new to us”.
It took several phone calls and a handful of emails but we were able to work together to produce Masonry Shop Drawings to begin work on the project.
