Making It Better

MORTISE AND TENON JOINTS

A centuries old method of joining two pieces of wood, the mortise and tenon construction technique ensures structural stability.

CORNER BLOCKS

Cabinet corners are braced with blocks that are screwed and glued in place to add rigidity and prevent racking.

FITTED BACKS

A Flush wood back panel is framed by the top, sides, and bottom of the cabinet to provide added structural strength and elimate racking.

SMOOTH DRAWERS

Each drawer features 7/16″ solid hardwood sides and back with a three-ply bottom, sanded and sealed with coats of clear finish to protect your most delicate items. All drawers come as standard with soft-close mechanisms.

REAL ENGLISH DOVETAILS

An English dovetail join connects the drawer front and back to the sides. It remains tight and snug after thousands of pulls.

FLOATING CONSTRUCTION

Raised panels on doors, sides, and beds “float” within the frame grooves. This allows for natural expansion and contractions of the wood and prevents cracks and splits.

FULLY FRAMED DUST PROOFING

Wood dust panels are framed between each drawer to resist sagging and prevent dust from falling between drawers onto clean clothes.

SOLID WOOD DRAWER GLIDES

On average, drawers are opened and closed over 50,000 times in 40 years! Wood-on-wood treated drawer guides provide years of quiet smooth service.
