Closets Conference & Expo 2024 featured a variety of sessions and activities designed to help professionals in the closets and woodworking industry stay on top of the trends, technologies, and strategies for success. This year, in addition to a revamped ACSP Designer Exchange, the inaugural DESIGN Talks and live machinery demos, the show celebrated the annual Top Shelf Design Awards, sponsored by Sauder Closets.

"Our cabinet team, J & J Construction & Cabinetry, used paint-grade maple plywood for all the woodwork and Baltic birch inside the drawers,” Jacobson said. “We designed an inset-style beaded shaker drawer and door front. Our clients wanted to dress up the cabinetry, so we added a bone trim to all the custom millwork."
