Product Information

Why do I need to choose a look for an exposed side?

Our cabinet sides are built with pre-finished 1/2" furniture grade Birch plywood sides. If you want the exposed sides to match the wood species of the face frame or if you want us to finish your cabinets, you must choose a look for the exposed sides.

What are my options for exposed sides?

We offer three options for exposed cabinet sides.

  1. Skin- On each cabinet product, you can request that we include a 1/4" matched species plywood skin. This skin will attach to rest behind the face frame making the side flush and flat. Or you can purchase beadboard plywood sheets from our accessories section that you can cut to size and use for exposed cabinet sides.
  2. Skin with Decor Door- On each cabinet product, you can request that we include a 1/4" matching skin to rest behind the face frame to make the side flush and flat along with a 3/4 thick decorative door to mount over the skin panel. Inset cabinets will have the decor door built into a 3/4 flush side.
  3. 3/4 Flush Side - This is a special request that you can make in the advanced options section on each cabinet. You can request that we build the exposed side(s) in 3/4 flush matched species plywood (Oak, Maple, Cherry or Hickory). (Our cabinets come standard with pre-finished birch interior, when you choose "3/4 flush side" the cabinet will have an unfinished interior on that side(s))

Are these cabinets CARB2 compliant?

Yes, our products are constructed from solid hardwoods and furniture-grade plywood. Our plywood is CARB2 compliant for restricted formaldehyde emissions. No particleboard or fiberboard is used in our cabinetry construction.

What is the best wood for paint?

Smooth Surface: Maple wood typically has a smooth and tight grain pattern, which provides an excellent surface for achieving a flawless paint finish. This allows paint to adhere evenly and results in a uniform appearance.

Absorbency: Maple wood has a relatively low absorbency compared to other woods, which means it doesn't soak up much paint. This unique characteristic helps prevent the paint from blotching or streaking, resulting in a more consistent and professional-looking finish.

Stability: Maple is known for its stability and resistance to warping, shrinking, or expanding with changes in varying environmental conditions such as temperature and humidity. Its stability helps maintain the integrity of the painted surface over time, reducing the likelihood of cracking or peeling.

Durability: Maple wood is durable and strong, making it well-suited for high-traffic areas such as kitchens and bathrooms. When properly primed and painted, maple cabinets and furniture can withstand daily wear and tear while retaining their beauty for many years to come.

Combining its smooth surface, low absorbency, stability, and durability, maple stands out as an excellent choice for painting projects, ensuring a professional-quality finish built to stand the test of time. Oak can be painted upon request, but you will see and feel the pronounced woodgrain. This also allows dust to settle in the grain requiring more maintenance.

Are these cabinets in stock?

Our cabinets are built to order. Everything we sell is custom-built, especially for you, by our master craftsmen. There is no finer or better-built cabinet available anywhere. That's just one of the reasons we have so many great reviews!

I am getting glass doors. What does the inside of the cabinet look like?

The interior of glass-door cabinets will be made with a matching wood species, and when you request finishing, it will be finished to match.

How much prep is required before finishing these cabinets?

Our cabinets come prep sanded to 150 grit., 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 sand with 120 grit sand paper before we apply our stain or pain then we follow up with hand sanding with 500 grit before applying our final top coat.

What is your finishing process?

Our cabinets are prep-sanded with 150-grit sandpaper. 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 stains. We then seal the cabinets to repel moisture and prevent expansion and contraction. Then we hand sand the cabinets with 500 grit sandpaper before receiving the final top coast. The final topcoat 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 sandpaper. Then we apply the final clear protective top coat. Our paint is also 20 Sheen which is considered a Satin finish.
