CABINET CONSTRUCTION

While a cabinet, at its most basic, is a box, it's the choices the cabinetmaker has made that separate the well-constructed, durable carcase from the flimsy, fall-apart failure. Crown Point Cabinetry prides itself on all of our construction, from rugged doors and drawer fronts, to custom organizational components to a cabinet carcase that will stand the test of time.

Let's take a look at the overall materials of our Inset Construction and Frameless Construction.

INSET CONSTRUCTION

Inset construction pertains to the following face frame options:

Our cabinet box is crafted from 1/2" UV-coated lumber core, no added formaldehyde plywood. That includes the flush recessed top, the bottom, and the left and right sides. (And that's before any applied finished ends.)

The interior shelf? 3/4" UV-coated lumber core plywood (again, no added formaldehyde!). The drawer box is ruggedly built out of 5/8" hard rock maple with a rout near the lower edge which frames and secures the 1/2" bottom (1/2" maple lumber core plywood).

The face frame of the cabinet is solid wood, 1" thick. The drawer fronts are solid wood, 1" thick. Our doors are also 1" thick, solid wood. (Note: Painted cabinets that have doors with a flat panel design receive a door panel that is maple veneered MDF)Inset cabinet construction

 

FRAMELESS CONSTRUCTION

Our frameless cabinetry is just as rugged. The construction of the box has 3/4" UV-coated lumber core, no added formaldehyde plywood making up the sides, the bottom, the top and the stretcher. The 1/2" back is UV-coated lumber core plywood, again, no added formaldehyde.

The interior shelf is 3/4" UV-coated lumber core plywood (safe to say at this point, all our plywood is no added formaldehyde). The drawer box is built out of 5/8" hard rock maple with a rout near the lower edge which frames and secures the 1/2" bottom (1/2" maple lumber core plywood).

The drawer fronts are solid wood, 1" thick. Our doors are also 1" thick, solid wood. (Note: Painted cabinets that have doors with a flat panel design receive a door panel that is maple veneered MDF)
