Door Styles & Wood Types

The four main types used; plywood, solid wood, MDF, and particle board.

The types are listed below from what is considered most durable to least durable.

Plywood – Pictured above – Plywood is very durable because each layer or “ply” has the grain running different directions which make it hard to break. It also comes in many different finishes, such as, Oak, Maple, Cherry. etc.  Plywood is an interior material we frequently use in the construction of our cabinets.

Solid Wood –  As the name implies, these are solid pieces of wood. Structures of the cabinet (the frame, drawer front, etc) may require multiple pieces of wood to construct. Each of those pieces used are a solid wood. Solid wood has not been engineered.

MDF – Medium Density Fiberboard – MDF is an engineered wood made from the fibers of soft woods that are fused together with an adhesive. MDF is denser and heavier than particle board. MDF is the material used for our "Paint Grade" cabinets.

Particle board – Pictured above - Particle Board is an engineered wood made from wood particles that are fused together with an adhesive. We only use this type of wood upon request due to its insignificant structural integrity.
