Cabinet Door and Drawer Construction

Wood Cabinet Doors and Drawers

There are 5 separate pieces that make up a wood cabinet door: 2 - Stile's, 2 - Rails and a center Panel. These pieces are then connected to create one door. Wood doors can be completed in a variety of styles and finishes. The construction of these doors are made to create an even swing weight, a variety of style options and to be durable! Stop in our showroom or visit our Gallery page to see style options and possibilities!

MDF Doors and Drawers

MDF is an engineered wood product that has become the preferred material for painted doors. Why? It has all the attributes of solid wood but is extremely stable, offers a smooth surface for painting and is more economical than painting a natural wood door. It is constructed of one solid piece, but can be customized to show a traditional Stile and Rail construction.

See our MDF Page for more information!


Door and Drawer Profiles

In addition to choosing either a raised or flat center panel for your doors and or drawers, you will also have additional choices available when deciding on the kind of profiles you want. Profiles are used on the inside and outside edges of the door. Custom profiles are also available per request.

Options available for the inside edge:

  • Bead
  • Chamfer
  • Cove
  • Ogee
  • Square.

Options for the outside edge are:

  • Chamfer
  • Cove

Centers Panel Options

In choosing a look for your cabinets, the kind of door style you choose plays a significant role in the overall look of your room. The center panel could either be Flat or have a Raised Panel. Creating two very distinctive looks.


Flat Panel Doors: The center panel of the cabinet door is flat rather than raised or contoured. Flat panel doors are favored by those who prefer sleek, clean designs. Flat panel cabinet doors can be traditional, transitional and even contemporary.


Raised Panel Doors: The center panel of the cabinet door is raised with a profile or contour. Raised panel cabinet doors work well for traditional and transitional looks.
