We employ several types of joinery to provide an elegant yet durable door for our customers.
- Cope and stick is similar to a mortise and tenon. It's the traditional method for assembling doors and produces both square and arched doors.
- Mitered doors allow for a highly profiled door frame but not for arches on the top or bottom. They are secured with a complex mortise and tenon system.
- With all our doors we use a floating panel system which allows for stability through the humid summer and dry winter months.
- Hinges bring the doors into function and we use what we believe to be the best. Blum® for a fully concealed look and Youngdale® Knife hinges with a self closing feature.
- French Dovetails are created by making a tapered groove in the drawer front,a matching tapered tenon on the side and sliding them securely together.
- Halfblind Dovetails are visible from the side of the opened drawer and provide a decorative look. Its advantage comes from a locking effect which prevents the drawer front from coming loose from the sides.
- Pullout shelves are made using our french dovetail and operate on Knape & Vogt full extension slides.
- All our drawers have an enclosed bottom and come standard with Blum Tandem® concealed full extension slides. The slides soft close feature prevents drawers from slamming shut.
we take great pride in our tradition of cabinet making. Unlike others, we take the extra steps.
Flush end panels and shelves instead of an 1/8" or 1/4" offset.
3/4" thick finished upper end panels and hardwood hanging rails on upper cabinets for added support.
Mortise and tenon joints on the face frames not angled screws.
Tub surround susan cabinets to prevent storage objects from falling off.
All wood construction; never any particleboard in the cabinets.
