Save on File Cabinets

February 11, 2020

Did you know that we can make a solid wood top to fit many different brands of file cabinets?  The file cabinets that we offer are first shipped to us by the manufacturer, then on to our customers after we make a solid wood top for them. All of the extra shipping adds cost, which is why in many cases our file cabinets are more expensive. Attaching our top to your file cabinet is an easy step, but it can save a bunch.  We can even help you to find a cabinet that works for you.


At Caretta, we’re focused on making your life easier while adding luxury and style to your office. From our sit-stand desks and conference tables to our bookcases and lecterns, we make the finest hardwood technology furniture around. What’s next to upgrade in your office suite of Caretta pieces? How about the one accessory everyone needs but no one likes to look at—the filing cabinet.

Tops can be made to match any of the Caretta product finishes including Estate Cherry, Weathered Gray Oak, and more. Installing the top is ridiculously easy!

We’ll review the dimensions of your filing cabinet and make any necessary adjustments to your order. Our master craftsmen then create your filing cabinet custom hardwood top from 1.25” thick Ohio hardwood. The piece is finished with a bull-nose front edge to compliment our desks and tables.
