Wood Cabinet Doors
We have been using one of the oldest and most experienced door makers in the United States for almost 20 years. Not only are we a customer but have been New England’s sales representative for over 18 of those years. Many of my competitors use the same doors for kitchen cabinet refacing projects and new custom-built cabinet installations. They are Superior Cabinet Components and they carry hundreds of styles, with thousands of colors and finishes in which to choose from. They have developed a scheduling system and manufacturing procedures that give us one of the fastest delivery times in the country.
Never substituting speed and quantity for quality, Superior Cabinet Components maintains the highest quality standards in the industry. All doors and drawer fronts are ordered custom, without exception. The styles and rails are 7/8 inch thick, and the raised panels are 3/4 inch thick, exceeding industry standards. All the doors and drawer fronts arrive at our shop unfinished, so that we have control of staining and finishing details. We apply a Sherwin Williams con-version varnish, which is a four step process.
The end result is a kitchen that leaves you with a durable finish for years to come. Color selection is limitless, we can custom mix and match just about any color, and would be more than happy to submit samples upon request.
Available Wood species and their descriptions
Hard Maple has become the most popular wood in the cabinet industry. This is due to its very light even cream color and light grain texture. It is hard and durable. Most of our hard maple is harvested in the North East and Canada.
The Cherry we use comes from Northern Pennsylvania. The Sapwood is creamy white with traces of gray and light brown. The Heartwood is reddish brown or light tan with traces of cream. Cherry contains occasional gum pockets. It is relatively hard and matches well. Please be aware that Cherry will darken with age.
Birch has very similar characteristics of Maple. It is a very uniformed honey color with medium to reddish brown color. The Birchwood is harvested throughout the United States.
The Mahogany we use is genuine South American Mahogany. It is a dark reddish brown color, and has open grain texture. It sometimes has a striped grain, and is moderately hard. It is a very elegant wood in the right setting.
We use Northern Red Oak. This Red Oak is a light uniform pink or wheat color with close together growth rings, which looks great with a clear finish it, and has very little sapwood. It is hard and has an open grain.
Eastern White Pine
The pine we use is Eastern White Pine, which grows in the Appalachian Mountains. It is a cream colored sapwood and reddish brown heartwood. Tight red knots, burls, and other character marks are left in place to create a natural rustic look. White Pine is tight grained and very soft.
