Haas Door and Drawer Construction

To understand the differences between our various door styles you need to understand their construction and how they fit on the cabinet frames.

Raised Panel

A raised panel door is made from five pieces of wood. The edges of the center portion are routed so that they are thinner than the "raised" center portion.

Flat or Recessed Panel

A flat or recessed panel door is made from five pieces of wood. The center portion is thinner than the door edges so that the front is "recessed".

Flush or Slab

A flush or slab panel door is made from one piece of wood. The edges may be very simple or routed.

 


 

Slab drawer front

The standard drawer front for many styles is the slab and is made from one piece of wood with edges to match the door.

Five-piece drawer front

An optional drawer front for many styles is the five-piece. The 5-piece drawer front is made in a similar manner to a cabinet door. The edges match the cabinet door.

 


 

Miter Joint

Mitered joint corners are cut at 45 degrees and glued together. They are similar to most picture frames.

Mortise and Tenon

Mortise and tenon joint corners butt-fit together. The tenons on the horizontal pieces fit into the mortises on the vertical pieces.

 


 

Full overlay doors with mitered joint corners

Full overlay doors hide the cabinet frame. Mitered joint corners are cut at 45 degrees and glued together. They are similar to most picture frames.

Inset doors on beaded face frames

Inset doors are hinged so they fit totally inside the cabinet frame and are flush with the frame. A beaded face frame has been routed so that a decorative groove shows on the frame edge around the door.
