All Horizon custom made cabinet doors and drawer fronts are produced in the U. Our products are made-to-order by skilled, experienced craftsmen and shipped directly to you. We keep prices low by eliminating the middleman, not by skimping on quality! Our doors are available either unfinished or, for our most popular wood cabinet species, finished with a stain and clear topcoat or a stain-plus-glaze and a durable, clear topcoat.
If ordered unfinished, the products are pre-sanded, ready for finishing by you. Each cabinet door and drawer front is custom sized to your specifications. Pre-boring for concealed hinges is also available. Choices exist for flat or raised panel doors. Custom raised panel cabinet doors panels can be either veneered plywood or solid wood. Solid wood flat panels can be grooved for a beadboard look.
Raised panels are solid wood or, for paint-grade doors, can be MDF. Doors can be constructed using either mitered or cope-and-stick also known as mortise-and-tenon ts. Mitered Door ts. Wood will expand and contract as it adapts to the surrounding environment.
Mitered doors are more susceptible to t separation than cope and stick doors. We use a fingert and dowel system to our mitered corners which produces one of the strongest mitered ts in the industry, yet some separation can occur. Controlling humidity is especially important with mitered doors. A painted finish is not recommended on mitered doors due to the probability of some opening of the ts. Wood will naturally respond to changes in humidity and the expansion and contraction can be dramatic. This potential movement makes it very important to control the humidity levels in the environment where the doors will be stored or used.
We have developed different grades of material to utilize our natural resources to the fullest. These distinct material grades have been established, allowing you to choose the best alternative for a particular job or finish. Premium Grade is for those jobs where a more uniform look is required.
There will be less of the natural material characteristics and the doors and drawer fronts will be produced within a more uniform color range. Orders of Premium Grade products will be matched to obtain a look that is as uniform as possible. However, since each board is different, there may be slight differences in appearance and color between pieces. These products will contain fewer and smaller mineral streaks and pin knots than Standard Grade. In "Heartwood" species, such as Red Oak or Cherry, no sapwood will be seen on the front of the door.
In "sapwood" species, such as Hard Maple, no heartwood will be seen on the front of the door. Standard Grade is for a wide variety of applications and will provide a good, versatile product at a good price. Standard grade material allows for many of the natural characteristics of the wood to be present in the doors and drawer fronts while eliminating the most objectionable characteristics.
Character marks such as pin knots and mineral streaks are limited in size. In "Heartwood" species, such as Red Oak or Cherry, the amount of sapwood that is present on the face of the dor or drawer front is limited and will only be present in the profiled areas. In "sapwood" species, such as Hard Maple, the heartwood will be limited to the profiled areas.
Standard Grade works well with most finishes. Light-tinted and clear finishes may accentuate the natural characteristics and color differences within the product. Paint Grade Maple allows the for the entire color range of the wood, including stains and mineral streaks. Knots, wormholes and other defects that would cause voids are limited, providing a smooth, paintable finish.
Once painted, the MDF surface will match the wood surface. If painting yourself, talk to your paint provider about the best way to prime or seal the MDF and wood. MDF is heavier than wood, but it is less likely to expand and contract with changes in humidity. This reduces the risk of gaps or paint cracking where the panel meets the frame, especially in environments where there are large swings in humidity. Rustic Knotty Grade allows knots, split knots, ingrown bark, character marks, and other natural characteristics. The knots are of varying size, both sound and unsound.
This grade allows the natural color of the specie, wormholes, and any other naturally occurring defects that may be present in the wood.
