The fronts of our certified cabinets are precision-cut and use pocket-screws on a specialized table for a tight, consistent fit.

The entire cabinet is constructed using hot cabinet glue with pre-grooved panels and fronts. The entire box is then held square with clamps. We do not use 'cleats' to build cabinets, typically found in very low-end cabinets.
