This web site has been created to provide the Trade Professionals and the DIY market with truly customised cabinetry, in the shortest possible time.
It has not been designed to teach the art of Cabinet Making nor to offer a dedicated “how to” help desk when it comes to Design and working out the cabinet sizes that are needed. The objective is rather to supply the Cabinet Making Industry with the quality products that they need to get the job done, at the lowest possibly cost.

We have however, provided a few relevant Links to web pages that detail kitchen design hints, materials and cost alternatives - in particular see Aneka Kitchens and other links as detailed in the home page

Our dedicated product support staff can be contacted on: support@cabinets-online.com.au and will be pleased to help you, but they are primarily responsible for answering on-line ordering questions, general transport logistics and web based product offerings.

At this stage we do not offer a Design service to to assist you with drawing your design up, detail design and technical questions as that will lead to an increase in pricing to cover the, often extensive, overheads.

It is expected that anyone buying products from this site has already a good understanding of basic Cabinet Making principles and methodology. Our aim at Cabinets on-Demand is to supply a completely customised flat-pack cabinet that is easy to assemble - but you have to select from the products on offer. At this stage we cannot continue to design and program different configurations.

You will be provided with some documentation about each cabinet, but because of the unique nature of what we offer, it will not be a step-by-step guide to assembly.

It is expected that the assembler of the flat-pack cabinetry will have their own basic Cabinet Making tools (drill, battery drill, hammer, etc). It is the users responsibility to ensure that the cabinet is correctly installed & levelled (fixed into position on-site) and to fix a cabinet to the wall. It is up to the end user to supply the necessary fittings and hardware required to do so.

All the cabinets from Cabinets on-Demand will come with the necessary screws and cams to assemble the cabinet, but not fix it to the wall.

The cabinet parts are all labelled in a logical order to assist in assembly, please take your time setting (laying out) the cabinet parts before starting to screw them together. This simple step may save you a lot of time later.

Each part has a label with a cabinet number on it. The cabinet number corresponds to the line number of the order that you placed. Once you have assembled a few flat-pack cabinets, you will find it is very easy and fast.

If you don't have the necessary skills to complete the job unassisted, then (depending on location)- we may be able to recommend an experienced cabinet installer that could assist you, but any costs negotiation will be between you and him.

Cabinets-onDemand-onLine is a network of high quality flat pack kitchens & custom sized kit set cabinets producers.
For locations of the various Cabinet making factories see: Manufacturing Outlets below.

CDAS specialises in CAD/CAM application development for the Cabinet Industry. Our business - operating since late 2004 is to deliver quality custom built Flat Pack Cabinetry for the D.I.Y Home renovator market as well as the Trade professionals Australia wide. We supply fully configured customised kitset cabinets, carcass only units or just panels cut to your specifications. Our personnel include staff with over 20 years practical ‘hands-on’ experience in Kitchen Joinery Trade and and others with over 30 years experience in IT systems analysis, design, implementation and administration in Australia.

The Cabinets on-Demand on-Line service was established after discussions with local and interstate Joinery manufacturers about the need to be able to supply truly customised cabinetry, in short productions runs very quickly. The recent investment in the research & development into this area by Rod Tyson, the owner of "Aneka Kitchens" in the ACT indicated that what was suggested was actually achievable. With the help of a few of the interested parties that were already engaged in NC systems installations, the information gathered provided the final parts of the puzzle to enhance the CAD/CAM driven manufacturing methodology that was originally only aimed at large scale production cycles, due to its high programming costs.

We then set about writing our own Australian software specifically designed for customised cabinetry in short production runs. We also worked closely with another software manufacturer, LearCom of Australia, to design a complete manufacturing system that not only produced the parts, but included the whole manufacturing cycle. With our own software being post-processed by QuickCAM & CADCode (supplied by LearCom) we were able to write one-off, disposable NC programs that controlled CNC factory equipment from large beam saws, and point-to-point machines, to nested routers and automated CNC panel saws in literally seconds. Assuming that this type of semi-automated system and hardware installations required would be out of scope for the smaller Cabinetry manufacturers and Kitchen installers for many years to come, it was soon apparent to CDAS and associates that there may be a market for supply of customised flat-pack cabinets -provided these cabinets could be produced on-demand, to unique dimensions, and very quickly & economically.

On the understanding that such a service will meet market demand we decided to develop a centralised administrative system to interface with the prospective customers. We set about setting in place factories across Australia that could take the data generated from the web site and have the job seamlessly slot into the next production cycle in anyone of these factories, via e-mail. The idea behind the multiple factories is to keep the cabinets freight costs to a minimum, thus ensuring that we can produce a competitively priced, fully customised product to nearly every corner of Australia.

In 2005 we received a grant from the ACT Government to assist with the development of our business concept and the Web site "www.cabinetsondemand.com.au" was designed to publicise and support the proposed service to collect individual cabinet specifications, delivery and payment details.

Our strength:

We are now able to collect client cabinet requirements and using highly automated methods to translate and import this data into our computer systems to drive the Numerical Controlled equipment to cut, drill and edge band the desired cabinet components with a minimum of man-power and time - thus able to providea fast and very economical service to our client base. All cabinets are designed and produced to specific requirements for individual customers.

Our Website makes it easy to select fixed price cabinets from five different Styles (Material & Finish) and nine different popular colours, with up to five different Face Designs and Profiles for Doors and Panels - a range that is not matched anywhere.
