Door Construction

Door Construction – Wood doors consist of door frames constructed from kiln-dried 3⁄4” solid hardwood with mortise and tenon joints and floating center panels constructed of veneered or solid wood.

 

Full Overlay – Full Overlay (FOL) doors are sized to cover nearly all of the cabinet face frame. Full Overlay door styles require knobs or pulls.

 

Cabinet Front Face Frames – Cabinet front face frames are made from 3⁄4” x 1 1⁄2” solid hardwood. They are kiln-dried to prevent warping. Face frame joints are pressure fitted, glued, double doweled, and stapled.

 

Cabinet Side Panels – Cabinet side panels are 1⁄2” thick and made of plywood or engineered wood. They are captured into a grooved front face frame and secured using high-strength fasteners and glue.

 

Cabinet Tops, Bottoms, and Floors – Tops, bottoms, and floors are 1⁄2” thick and made from plywood or engineered wood. They are fitted and glued into the cabinet front face frame grooves, then captured in the grooves of the cabinet side panels.

 

Cabinet Back – The cabinet back is made from 1⁄2” thick engineered wood or 5⁄8” thick plywood frame. They are captured, secured and glued in the grooves of side panels and top/bottom.

 

Cabinet Shelves – Cabinet shelves are 3⁄4” thick plywood or engineered wood. All shelves are adjustable and meet KCMA load standards of 15 pounds per square foot.

 

Drawer Systems – Double wood doweled vinyl covered or natural finish

dovetail hardwood drawers with plywood bottoms and Full Access Hidden Glide System. All drawers featured in the guide meet KCMA load standards of 15 pounds per square foot.

 

Corner Blocks – Corner blocks are attached to help ensure cabinet squareness and allow for proper countertop installation.

 

Hinges – Fully concealed, 6 way adjustable, self-closing Hidden Hinge are standard on all door styles.

 

Inset Toe Kick – Inset toe kicks are constructed with the same material as side panels.
