This type of face framed construction is made of 3/4"solid oak, maple, cherry, birch, or pine.
With face frame cabinet construction, the top, sides, and bottom of the cabinet are attached to the wood frame at the front of the cabinet, that serves as the structural support for the box.
Doors are attached to the face frame of the cabinet. This is available in either traditional or full overlay styles.
Inset doors are available only with face frame cabinetry. With inset construction, the cabinet doors and drawer fronts fit flush with the face frame. With close tolerances required, great care is taken in the application of inset doors.
The model shown on the first photograph is the basic design. A decorative element can be added around the central opening of the frame to give the cabinet more style. The fist photograph below (hinge types) shows a beaded inset door.
Frameless, or Euro style, cabinets are 5/8 sides, top, and bottom panels in box construction.
Cabinet doors are attached directly to the sides of the cabinet. This configuration allows for a maximum of storage space, as there is no frame on the face of the cabinet box, and is standard full overlay.
