About Us

Lane 17 is a design + build manufacturer specializing in custom cabinetry. With a focus on modern design, we utilize the highest quality materials and craftsmanship to tailor our cabinetry to the lifestyles of the great people we are so fortunate to do business with.

Forged in Maine. Born in Cleveland, Ohio.

In 2016, Alex Forbes founded Lane 17 in pursuit of creating high-end products that are more sustainably and efficiently produced using the highest quality of materials and craftsmanship, entirely made in the USA. Our multi-faceted team utilizes traditional techniques in junction with thoughtful design, engineering and modern manufacturing to achieve this goal.

The name ‘Lane 17’ originated from Fire Lane 17 located on the East side of Lake Webb in Weld, Maine. Since the 1960s, Lake Webb has been a summer home to the Forbes family and is where Alex spent most of his summers growing up. It is here that he learned the value of exceptional craftsmanship and the impact it can have on everyday lives.
