From wood working to finishing, our kitchen cabinets are crafted by people who care. Shown below are the key steps of our kitchen cabinet production.
• Hand sort and select kiln-dried solid wood timber to use in our cabinetry. Check and keep moisture of wood timber below 10%. • Cut solid wood timber in right width, length and thickness, and shape door profile. Rubber inserts are placed in the door frames to stabilize the panel and allow for expansion. • Assemble face frames by blind mortise and tenon joint, an classic wood joinery method that is recognized as a sign of high quality. This creates a stronger joint and prevents splitting. • All our glue assembled doors are placed under pressure for no less than 2 hours to guarantee strong and stable bonding of door stile and rail. Then kitchen cabinet doors are put in dehumidification room for no less than 24 hours, to get moisture distribution balanced. • Kitchen cabinet doors, drawer fronts and face frames are surface sanded, fine sanded and then hand sanded, to eliminate cross grain scratches and create a smooth surface.
• Kitchen cabinet doors and drawer fronts are dust removed and quality inspected, before sap stains are applied to balance the natural color of the wood in order to create even, consistent color. • Grain enhancing stain and hand rubbed stain are sprayed and hand rubbed to enhance the wood grain characteristics. The surfaces are then dried and inspected. • The durable wood sealer is applied and then oven cured. Kitchen cabinet doors and drawer fronts are then sanded, dust removed, providing a smooth consistent surface in preparation for next finishing. • Environmentally safe topcoat is applied to the kitchen cabinet doors. Our topcoat is a oven baked finish that extends the original color and clarity of the wood while standing up to everyday wear and tear. • A final clear top coat is applied, the kitchen cabinet doors are again oven cured. Finished doors and drawer fronts 100% go through quality inspection and color consistency checking. • We apply UV finish to the sides, tops, bottoms and shelves of kitchen cabinet box with automatic UV finishing line, providing a tough, durable surface.
