Kitchen Cabinets / September 5, 2018 / Darold Davis
To get a better understanding of the way cabinets are made, I visited two manufacturers: Canyon Creek Cabinet Company in Monroe, Washington, which makes semi-custom units, and O.B. Williams Company in Seattle, a 125-year-old woodworking shop that builds custom cabinets.
Material type. Your material choice matters greatly to the look of stained cabinets, while for paint-grade cabinets, solid wood material relates more to the quality of construction. Stained oak, cherry and alder are three commonly used materials (there are many others) and each takes stain and shows wood grains differently.
