Woodmark’s main cabinetmaker has 32 years of experience. His father was a lifelong trim carpenter and cabinetmaker. The father of Woodmark’s owner was also a lifelong carpenter and cabinetmaker. The result is as it would seem to be: Woodmark Kitchen and
Woodmark job builds all types of cabinets: face frame, full overlay, those with inset doors and all others. The price of our kitchen which includes them does not vary substantially from one type to the other. We build what you feel you will most enjoy.
The base cabinet and wall cabinet “boxes” are made of ¾” birch plywood. The backs of all upper wall cabinets are made of ¼” birch plywood. The face frames (the part the doors are hung from) are made of solid poplar or mapleno veneered plywood. Each piece is cut to fit the kitchen cabinets and the kitchen space. The top surface of the cabinet is covered with BC plywood. Cabinet door and drawer faces are made by a door manufacturer, Evans Cabinets and Doors in

The height of your kitchen cabinets can be of your choosing. Kitchen cabinet finished tops are normally 36” above your finished floor, but in recent years many have been raised to 37”, 38” or more. It is entirely up to you.
Cabinet doors are made such that they appear to be one solid piece of wood but in reality include a picture frame with solid wood in the center that is allowed to move within the frame to prevent warping.
Storage within cabinet drawers created by Woodmark is optimum. Each drawer in a drawer stack is constructed such that it may be stacked one on top of the other with no space in between. Also all drawers have full extension drawer slides such that all contents in the back of each drawer are easily accessible. If you calculate the difference in storage volume between our method and the more common one where each drawer had a divider as much as 2” wide above and below it and then is allowed to be extended only two-thirds of the way out, you will come up will an increased storage volume of our drawers of almost double the common one.
All types of available wood are allowed with generally no difference in price on stained cabinets. We generally use cherry, alder, maple and birch.
Rubber bumpers 1/16” thick are installed on all cabinet drawers and rubber bumpers 1/8” thick are installed on all cabinet doors to reduce noise and damage to door facings.
When raw doors are delivered to the job site they are put inside the home and then stacked flat so as to prevent them from being affected by moisture with the consequent warping. We then prime doors to be painted within a day or two and properly stack doors to be stained one on top of another to protect them completely until they are sealed.
