Online custom kitchen cabinet source?

I need to resize a cabinet in order to fit a new appliance. I was wondering if instead of resizing it I could order a custom made cabinet online.
Does anyone know of online places that manufacture custom sizes of face frame cabinets (unfinished)?

It sounds like you bought a refrigerator. I had a potential customer who wanted me to make his cabinet 2 inches smaller. I told him that I wouldn't even attempt it & that he would need a cabinet maker to do that. I searched google for some custom kitchen cabinet sites. They are out there but I have no idea who is good & who isn't. You might want to look for a local guy.

I would prefer a local guy as well. But there are not that many around. The ones that are around don't seem to be much interested in such small jobs - and takes a lot of effort to get in touch with them... Some of the online stores sell unassembled cabinets. I have no experience with assembling face frame cabinets. I would prefer an assembled cabinet.

How much space to you need to gain? The biggest issues with replacing the cabinet is getting both the same color and style. It might be easier [cheaper too] to modify the cabinet you already have.

I need a 36 wide, 24 D, and 25 high cabinet. I think my current one is 27".
I have the advantage that I refinished the cabinets. So, I have the stain, finish...

I doubt you can modify your existing cabinet that much

If you can find the right cabinet from the unassembled place, I wouldn't be scared of it. I've not assembled any store bought cabinets but I've seen it done and it's not a difficult job. I've built my own cabinets but getting the door to match might be an issue for your job.
