Standard Case Construction
All cabinet components, gables, shelves, and backs, are manufactured from 5/8″ thermally fused door grade melamine particle board core. Cases constructed from white melamine have a full 1/2″ vinyl finished back. Our usual practice is to manufacture with 5/8″ thick materials. We find that 3/4″ material is not necessary for this type of construction design, but we can manufacture to this size should your specification or hinges require.
In our workshop, all of our exposed edges are finished with PVC edge tape by using high temperature adhesives.
Joints are manufactured using dado and rabbet joints, which give strong wood-to-wood bonds. This method of construction is far stronger than that of brads, staples, dowels, and screws. The dado joint eliminates any movement of material in all directions, and eliminates splitting of material caused by improperly setting screws. Brads and staples are only used to hold materials together while the glue sets.
32mm line boring of gables allows for European hardware and adjustable shelf clips.
Drawers are manufactured with 5/8″ melamine board using glue and staple construction, and are fitted with our standard self-closing euro-style roller drawer glides. We can also manufacture with dovetail drawer boxes or in steel. Optional slides include zinc finish full extension, self closing zinc full extension, and concealed undermount slides.
Doors from various suppliers are manufactured in a large variety of styles, finishes, and colours. Doors are supplied with 100 degree self-closing clip–on hinges.
