Cabinet Construction

While a cabinet, at its most basic, is a box, it’s the choices the cabinetmaker has made that separate the flimsy, fall-apart failure from the well-constructed, durable carcase. Crown Select cabinetry prides itself on every facet of our construction, from rugged doors and drawer fronts, to 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:

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

The interior shelf is 3/4″ UV-coated lumber core plywood (again, no added formaldehyde!). 

Drawer box options offered are either a four-sided 5/8″ Maple dovetailed drawer with 1/2″ UV-coated lumber core plywood bottom, or the soft-close Blum LEGRABOX. That drawer box is ruggedly built with steel sides and 5/8″ MDF core laminate back and bottom and is weight-rated at 40 kg (88 lbs).

The face frame of the cabinet is solid wood, 3/4″ thick. The drawer fronts are solid wood, 3/4″ thick. Our doors are also 3/4″ thick, solid wood with 1/4″ panels that are veneered MDF.
