Custom Cabinetry

Orlando Buenano of Custom Cabinetry is a dedicated father, son, brother, friend and master woodworker.   Orlando graduated Gulf Coast High School in 2011 and as any newly graduated high school student he planned on taking two years off before college. The first year of his two-year plan he did tile, carpentry, roofing, rough framing work and disliked every bit of it and was unhappy. He found himself working out of Quality Cabinets of Bonita Springs, where is enjoyed getting hands on experience but still felt as though something was missing.  He was blessed and lucky enough to meet woodworking genius Tom Frank owner of Inspired Woodworking, where he stayed for several years being an apprentice, learning the craft and falling in love with the trade. To this day Orlando and Tom are still great friends and when Orlando gets stuck, Tom is the one he calls; you could say Tom is his mentor.  

In his words, making cabinets is work and can be a bit boring and tedious, but building custom pieces such as entertainment centers and vanities is the fun relaxing part of the job.  He’s constantly learning and evolving. And let me tell you, what I would give to have a custom piece from Custom Cabinetry in our home.  If you’re in the market for new cabinets, a custom built in entertainment center, vanity, desk, custom closets, wet bar, floating shelves. I mean seriously, the possibilities are limitless and Orlando is meticulous at his craft.  I haven’t experienced it first hand, but I’ve heard that Orlando is a bit of a perfectionist, I hear while he’s working in his shop he keeps his cell phone in a plastic bag inside in his pocket. If he’s that particular about his phone, imagine the detail and attention that goes into his work.

 "Each plank…can have only one ideal use. The woodworker must find this ideal use and create an object of utility to man, and if nature smiles, an object of lasting beauty.” George Nakashima – Woodworker

Toni Shoemaker

Originally from Indiana, Toni was high school and college educator as well as a radio broadcaster and her husband Steve, a retired automotive engineer, spent several years in Detroit Michigan before making the move to Fort Myers. While in Detroit, Toni completed her Ph.D. in Instructional Technology at Wayne State University and worked as a high school administrator. She is an avid Colts fan and also loves boating, reading, traveling, golfing, dining and the sandy beaches of Southwest Florida.

Upon moving Ft. Myers Toni fully intended on retiring, however she quickly found retirement didn’t suit her active, fun loving people person personality. Her son Joe, a Real Estate agent in Indiana, Indianapolis, talked her into becoming a Real Estate agent. Toni knew it would be a perfect fit for her, she would be able to continue her work as an educator in a different venue, spend time with people and she’s always had an interest in architecture and design. Though she was blessed as an educator having a career she enjoyed for many years, she has found that working as a Realtor to be personally and professionally rewarding as well.

I have been blessed to personally know Toni for several years and let me tell you, she’s a phenomenal woman. They don’t make them any better than this folks, she has the biggest heart of anyone I’ve meet, her encouragement was a huge driving force to me starting a business, and she truly is a rare gem. 

Check out one of her current listings, located in Carillon Woods, at 58 Timberland Circle S, Fort Myers, FL 33919.  This house is stunning, offering 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, gracious living, new baths with travertine showers, fireplace, custom closets with built ins (ladies it offers not one but two custom shoes closets), saltwater pool with high-efficiency pump wired for heater, stainless steel appliances, new tile roof and don’t even get me started on the master bathroom, I’d move in right now just for the claw foot tub!
