Dedication to High-Quality Custom Millwork

Founded in Taylor, Michigan in May of 2022, Case Design + Fabricating is your premier custom millwork shop in the Detroit area. With decades of combined experience in the millwork industry, founders, Sara, Richard and Kelley obsess about developing creative and innovative solutions for interior challenges. From large-scale commercial casework projects to hand-built single-family residential home millwork, the Case team delivers high-quality, creative solutions to your storage and aesthetic dilemmas.

Quality Craftsmanship Is Our Hallmark

Case Design + Fabricating is built on the values of quality, understanding, teamwork, and integrity. Though our deliverables fall within woodwork design and fabrication, our principles are all about people. We believe that person is deserving of respect, safety, and opportunity. This extends beyond the walls of our fabrication shop and applies to every interaction we have with our clients, end-users, and suppliers. Everyone deserves to have the interior of their dreams, and it’s our mission to make that happen through quality craftsmanship.


We know that innovation doesn’t just happen. That’s why we gain a genuine understanding of your needs before we begin a project. Understanding the “why” behind your project is invaluable to us as we design and fabricate millwork to improve your life or the lives of your end-users. You need cabinets that are as functional as they are beautiful. You need built-ins that enhance your space. You need streamlined storage solutions for large commercial enterprises. Whatever your needs, Case has you covered.


Quality in our craftsmanship and communication is the bedrock of our operation. From fresh and thoughtful ideas, skilled hands honing and perfecting their crafts, and materials that perform under pressure; Case is committed to delivering a quality product and an exceptional standard of service for each of our projects.


We are deeply committed to integrity throughout our processes. We maintain open communication with our clients and we pride ourselves on our capacity to meet the project timeline. Navigating design and fabrication sometimes comes with bumps along the way. We promise to address those challenges head on, with clear communication and a problem-solving mindset.


Teamwork is another core value of ours at Case Design + Fabricating. We believe teamwork means many voices acting as one. We encourage listening and learning from each other, and we apply this mindset to all of our client interactions. When we function as a team between designer, fabricator, general contractor or architect, and end user, we are able to deliver precision millwork that exceeds expectations. 

Kelley Erickson

She has the most fun when picking apart a puzzle to uncover problems, help clients identify their priorities, and challenging herself to manifest creative solutions. As a managing partner of Case, she leads a team of talented designers and project managers who work side by side with each client, through every step of the process, from idea to install.

Richard Skyles

chief financial officer

Sara Smereka

chief design engineer

Sara’s first taste of the millwork industry came in 2009 and sparked a curiosity for understanding how a design becomes a reality through the intricacies of production and fabrication. After years working in the field and as an interior design educator, she partnered with Kelley and Richard to develop a custom millwork company that thrives on creating unique results. With a love of custom and off-beat millwork, Sara thrives when it comes to unique projects. 

We don’t only make things beautiful. We make them work great as well.

High-quality millwork calls for a state-of-the-art fabrication shop. Case Design + Fabricating has just that. Our 18,000 sq. ft. facility is equipped with cutting-edge technology, including: 

CAD software for detailed renderings of your custom millwork

A 5’x12′ Hot Press in which the finish material, like wood veneer or laminate, is pressed and bonded to raw substrate, such as plywood, particle board, or MDF.

A Busellato CNC machine, which works in tandem with Mozaik and Wave programming to cut the boards or other solid surface into precise sizes and quantities with extremely tight tolerance.

A Homag Edgebander to apply PVC or veneer edge material to CNC-machined components.

An Omal Doweler, which is a CNC-controlled machine that efficiently bores, glues, and dowels wood pieces.

A Case Clamp to pressure-seal pieces for added strength and stability.

A finishing station for stains, clear coats, and wood painting.

An insert installation station where we install all interior elements like drawer boxes, roll-out trays, shelves, trash pull-outs, and other specialty organizational inserts before mounting cabinetry doors and drawer fronts.

We employ skilled craftsmen with an average of 20 years experience in the architectural millwork industry. From custom cabinets and wall paneling to built-in bookshelves and window seats, our experienced craftsmen fabricate it all. We combine top-notch design services with precision fabrication to meet your specific needs.
