Millwork Shop Drawings

Millwork shop drawings are created by the contractor, subcontractor, vendor, manufacturer, or other entity that is responsible for millwork. The “Means Illustrated Construction Dictionary Third Edition Unabridged” defines millwork as:

All the building products made of wood that are produced in a planing mill, such as moldings, door and window frames, doors, windows, blinds, and stairs. Millwork does not include flooring, ceilings, and siding.

A typical scenario is:

Architectural contract documents call for custom cabinetry in a house. A cabinet shop is then hired as a contractor to create and install the custom cabinets. The cabinet shop therefore has to submit shop drawings of the cabinets to the architect, for his review and approval, before the cabinets are created and installed.
