How is Shelf Help Different than Flat Pack Furniture
The Shelf Help system is modeled after how a traditional craftsman would build a forever piece of furniture. Starting with using the best materials, to cutting on high end factory panel saws for precision, to recommending time tested building and trimming methods, your piece will last a lifetime and be repairable and refinishable.
How Much Does Shelf Help Cost?
Shelf Help is comparable in cost to flat pack furniture. It averages about half the cost of fully finished furniture from retailers, and about 1/3 the cost of hiring a pro.
Apples to apples, you can save 50-70% by doing some of the work yourself!
Your Built-in Options Compared
When it comes to built in furniture - mudrooms, office systems, living room fireplace cabinets, closets and kitchens and much more, you have options in different budgets and features. Here's how the most popular options compare to the Shelf Help system.
Can I Just Cut My Own Plywood?

I'm a professional finish carpenter. Shelf Help provides me with super accurate case cuts, saving me time and money, all delivered to the jobsite. The end product is so much better with everything being a factory edge.
