Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of material do you make your cabinets out of?
I fabricate all of my cabinet interior boxes out of pre-finished birch or maple plywood. I do not use any melamine or press board in any of my products unless otherwise requested. If I’m building custom furniture such as an entertainment center than my material that I use is the same on the interior as it is on the exterior.
What do you typically make your drawer boxes or rollouts out of ?
I typically fabricate my drawers and rollouts out of ½” pre-finished birch or maple plywood. The construction features that I use are a butt joint with a ¼” dado bottom, however that is the standard I do have customers request a dovetail joint on the drawer box or rollout. I must say that I have done several remodels on fire station kitchens and use the butt joint type construction. I have yet to replace any; and let me tell you that is the ultimate test.
What type of hardware do you use?
I use only Blum hinges and drawer guides. The Blum self closing hinge is a concealed, fully adjustable hinge and has a full guarantee on them. The drawer guides that I use are Blumotion self closing guide these are high end drawer guides. I tend to stick with hardware that I have used time and time again with great success.
What type of finish do I get on my cabinets ?
You have several options, but once again I have had great success with what the industry calls a two part conversion varnish. This product can be used as a clear sealant over a stained product or can be mixed in a solid color as well. This product holds up very well. I typically use it in a high traffic area such as kitchens and bathrooms. Once again I use these on fire station remodels and have had great success as well.
