BOX CONSTRUCTION

  • Face Frame – The structural portion of the cabinet to which doors are attached, consisting of both rails and stiles
  • End Panel – The side of the cabinet that is attached to the face frame and extends to the back panel
  • Top – The upper surface of the cabinet
  • Bottom – The floor of the cabinet
  • Back – The rear vertical surface used to mount the cabinet to the wall
  • Fixed Shelves – ¾ horizontal storage surfaces that are fixed in place
  • Adjustable Shelves – Horizontally placed storage surfaces adjusted by moving pins used to hold the shelf in place
  • Toekick – The recessed toe space at the bottom of a base cabinet

 

 

 

 

DOOR OVERVIEW

  • Center Panel– The raised or flat panel in the middle of a door enclosed by stiles and rails
  • Center Stile– Sometimes called a mullion, this is the raised rail in the middle of a door that is enclosed by stiles and rails
  • Edge Profile– Shape put on the outside edge of a door or drawer front
  • Stile– The vertical-framing members of a cabinet face frame or cabinet door
  • Rail – A horizontal framing member of a cabinet face frame or door
  • Reveal– On a framed cabinet, the distance between the outside edge of the face frame and the outside edge of the door typically 1/2 inch

 

DRAWERS

  • Dovetail Joint – A series of pins cut to extend from the end of one board interlock with a series of tails cut into the end of another board
  • Drawer Glide – The system used to support the drawer in a cabinet and provide opening/closing operation
  • Tongue and Grove Joint – Each piece has a groove cut all along one edge, and a thin, deep ridge (the tongue) on the opposite edge. Great for custom shaped drawers

For more information on drawer glides please visit our friends at Blum

 

HARDWARE

  • Concealed Hinge – Not visible on the surface of the cabinet
  • Quiet Close Hinge – This feature protects the hinge from damage if the door is slammed
  • Knob – Surface hardware attached with one screw. Typically, smaller than a pull and used on a proportionally smaller door or drawer
  • Pull – Surface hardware attached with two screws, like a handle

We can work with you on any style of knob or pulls you prefer. For great ideas please visit our friends at Amerock
