A: Our cabinet sides are built with 1/2" furniture grade Birch plywood sides. If you want the exposed sides to match the wood species of the face frame.
Q:What are my options for Exposed Sides?
A: We give you three optoins.
1) Match Species Ply- We build the exposed side(s) in matched species plywwod (Oak, Maple, Cherry or Hickory).
2) Skin- We attach a 1/4" matched species plywood skin. This skin rests behind the face frame making the side flush.
3) Skin with Decor Door- We will attach a 1/4" matching skin to make the side flush then we will apply a 3/4 thick decorative door to go on over that.

A: We offer a variety of door styles. The differences between the styles are in hinge overlay and drawer glide options. Standard 1/2" overlay leaves about 1" space around the doors and drawer fronts. Full 1 1/2" overlay has larger doors and drawer fronts leaving about 1/4" space between the doors and drawer fronts.
Q: Are these cabinets in stock?
A: No. Everything we sell is custom built for you by our master craftsmen from scratch, not stocked. There is no finer or better built cabinet available, anywhere. That is one of the reasons we have a 5 star rating.

Q: I am getting glass doors. What does the inside of the cabinet look like?
A: The inside is high quality, furniture grade birch plywood. You may request a custom order and choose "same species case", so that the inside of the cabinet will be made with the same species of wood. The cost for this custom upgrade is 50% of the cabinet price.
Q: How much prep is required before finishing these cabinets?
A: The cabinets come sanded, but you may have some final prep sanding to do before you proceed to finishing depending on what product and method you are using. We suggest 150 grit sand paper for stain or paint. That is what we use before we ship.
Q: What is your finishing process?
A: Our cabinets are prep sanded with 150 grit sand paper. Then we apply a deep penetrating stain to all surfaces. (If you want the exposed sides finished you must upgrade the sides to have matching wood species.) All surfaces are then hand wiped to remove excess stain. We then seal the cabinets to repel moisture and prevent expansion and contraction. Then we hand sand the cabinets with 500 grit sand paper before receiving the final top coast. The final top coat is a clear polyurethane conversion varnish 20 sheen. Our conversion varnish is fast drying and acid cured. If you choose for us to paint your cabinets the paint would be applied after the sealer and seal sanding with 500 grit sand paper. Our paint is also 20 Sheen which is similar to a Satin finish.
