Cabinetry is designed using the latest in CAD technologies. G Code is then generated for the CNC Router, which cuts all parts necessary to construct the custom cabinets. Additional cut lists are generated for door and drawer front sizes.
Pre-finished sheets of Birch plywood are loaded onto the vacuum table of the CNC router, which holds the material in place. The G Code identifies the bit to be used, and locates each hole, groove, and cut for the machine to create. Cutting occurs to zero tolerances in this extremely precise process.
We custom code our doors and drawer fronts in AutoCAD. This process allows us to select each bit, draw the path it will take, and determine the depth of each cut.
After the doors are cut, they are prepared for finishing through several stages of sanding.
CDC has hundreds of door styles, view a small sample of some of our most popular doors.
The primary type of cabinet built by CDC is a “euro” or “frameless” style of cabinet, meaning no face frames are visible. See our photo gallery for numerous examples. In order to complete a euro style cabinet, edgebanding that matches the paint color is applied to the edges of the boxes that the doors and drawers rest on when closed.
The cabinet boxes are assembled and clamped perfectly square in the case clamp, and sent to the staging area of the shop.
Finally, all of the painted parts are attached to the boxes, drawer fronts and doors are applied, and the cabinets are ready to be installed.
