Read on for more information on our selection process and the materials we use.
Meticulous Wood Selection
At NC Woodwork, wood selection is paramount. Every piece of lumber is inspected for quality assurance.
We carefully hand pick our wood from the finest selection of each wood species. All of our lumber is locally purchased and kiln dried.
Face frames are hand glued and doweled together, adding strength and durability.
We only use cabinet grade plywood for box construction.
Exposed sides are ¾” domestic plywood.
All furniture end exposed sides are tongue and grooved hardwood frames with panels attached to the cabinet.
We utilize 1/2" plywood backs to allow for a sturdier and more cost effective cabinet.
3" support braces are used for structural support along the front and back of the top of each cabinet.
When you open your cabinetry, we expect you to find the same quality in the cabinet drawers as we place in your cabinet box.
We offer all species of solid wood for the construction of your drawer boxes.
We provide options of either 1/4" - 3/8" drawer bottoms. This allows you to make the most informed decision depending on what works best for you.
We provide half blind dovetailed drawer boxes for superior long lasting durability and an unmatched look.
Slides & Hinges
At NC Woodwork, we use nothing but the best for our cabinetry and that includes our cabinetry mechanisms.
Blum under-mount full extension soft close drawer slides are an innovative technology that provides perfect movement of our cabinetry drawers.
European Blum hinges apply to any angle and allow for a soft close and discreet look.
Our facility includes a 1500 square foot finishing booth and large exhaust system to make sure the products we finish are always consistent and pristine.
We use the best HVLP spray systems for clear and immaculate lacquer paint every time. Our step by step process is outlined below:
1. Each cabinet is sanded to perfection.
2. Stain is applied, followed immediately by a sanding sealer to capture and maintain the beauty and detail of the grain.
3. The cabinets are then hand sanded once again. We mean SMOOTH.
4. Cabinet-grade finishing lacquer coat is applied.
5. We repeat steps 3 & 4 to ensure a smooth and flawless finish that will last a lifetime.
6. When using paint, we utilize these same steps with the substitution of clear cabinet-grade lacquer in addition to 2 coats of both primer and paint with thorough sanding between each coat.
