Construction and Craftsmanship

We firmly believe that cabinetry should be constructed of hardwood plywood materials. We stress the use of an all 3/4" plywood cabinet box for European style "frameless" cabinet boxes. Furniture-grade or pressed board materiials are very fragile around water use areas such as kitchens and baths.

For framed type cabinetry, we use solid hardwood face frames with plywood boxes as well.

We recommend the use of 3/4" plywood drawer boxes or 1/2" to 5/8" solid wood dovetail boxes. Both feature 1/4" plywood bottoms with the use of Blum full extension undermount drawer slides.


We favor the use of full extension ball bearing glides with the "soft-close" feature for drawers and also the soft-close feature for doors.

From standard swing doors to specialty type doors, we encourage the use of soft-close not only as a premium feature but as a safer way to close doors.
