How can I troubleshoot a smelly kitchen island?

Our kitchen island cabinets smell and this is a new build. The island has our sink and dishwasher and started to smell a few weeks after moving in. It’s almost like it’s the cabinet wood that stinks. They have done smoke tests, leak tests, checked the garbage disposal, removed cabinets, etc. They are replacing the dishwasher because it was installed without a heat shield but I’m afraid that isn’t the issue because the smell is there without the dishwasher running although it does get worse when it is running. Any advice?
