Overlay cabinet front frames are 3/4” solid hardwoods with 1 1/2” wide stiles and rails using glued and screwed joinery. Inset cabinet face frames are built with a haunch joint.

Case Construction and Interiors:

1/2” plywood is standard and interiors will be UV Birch veneer. Matching wood interior is offered as a modification. Cabinets are available at standard sizes with customization of dimensions allowed to 1/16”. Any case dimension change, whether increase or decrease, is subject to manufacturing limitations. Please contact customer service for any required dimensions that fall outside the span of our standard offered sizes.


Cabinet backs are (1/4” panel with UV Birch veneer) dadoed into the sides. 1/2” plywood hanging rails, mounted externally, are standard on most cabinets. The grain on interior backs will be horizontal on cabinets larger than 48” wide.

Toe Space:

Toe space is 4 1/2” high and 3 1/2” deep covered with a 1/2” sub toe board. Finished toe board matching specie and finish of cabinets is available as an accessory. Toe space platforms will be shipped loose on super susan bases, diagonal corner bases, and tall cabinets over 84” high as a standard.

Shelves and Supports:

Adjustable shelves are 3/4” UV Birch veneer plywood, front edge banded. 24” deep tall cabinets have a 22 1/4” deep shelf. 24” deep base cabinets have a 17 1/4” deep shelf. Wall cabinets have an 11 1/4” deep shelf. The shelf supports are nickel-plated steel peg in 5mm hole, adjustable in 32mm (approx 1 1/4”) increments. Typical minimum frame opening height for adjustable shelf = 18”.


Drawers are 5/8” solid maple sides, dovetailed front and back with a 1/4” maple veneer panel captured bottom . (Walnut drawer boxes available as an option.) Standard drawer box heights are available in 1” increments from 2” through 10”. The actual drawer box height will be determined by the frame opening height. For example, a 5” frame opening will have a 4” high drawer box. Contact customer service for other drawer height availability. Full width drawer boxes in cabinets 39” wide and over will have additional bottom support.


Blumotion drawer glides are standard with 100 lb. weight capacity. Blumotion is an undermount, full extension, concealed glide that closes silently and smoothly with only a light touch by user. If the frame openings for the drawer boxes are under 6” wide, solo glides will be used due to constraints in the Blumotion hardware. Rollout shelf glides are sidemount epoxy coated steel with nylon roller bearings. Floor mount rollouts will have Blumotion glides. The deluxe undermount rollouts will have Blumotion glides. Glide hardware may not be available for cabinets less than 12” deep. Contact customer service for availability and options.
