C.A.D. – Computer Aided Custom Cabinetry

backsplash, kitchen renovation

Cabinetry is made in a variety of ways. In today’s digital age there is woodworking software designed to help design custom kitchen and bathroom cabinetry. In the old-days all cabinet manufacturing was done by hand and designed on paper. Today’s manufacturing process has become more advanced, and there are even templates that can help homeowners design the cabinets of their dreams.

Today cabinets many cabinets are designed using computers that aid in the design process. Users can get a feel for what the cabinets would look like with 3-D cabinetry software. But there is more to the cabinet manufacturing process than just the software.

Cabinet Manufacturing

How Cabinet Making Changed

The old required tools for a cabinet making job were a table saw, some drills, and a lot of measuring. Everything was measured and done by hand. All that hard work paid off, but when computers came onto the scene they brought with them a whole new level of efficiency and precision for cabinet markers. Today much of the design process is done using software that makes the job of custom cabinet manufacturers much easier.

Framed vs. Frameless Construction

When it comes to cabinet construction and manufacturing, there are a couple basic design styles homeowners can choose between from. There are cabinets made with frames and there are also frameless cabinets. The frameless style is sometimes referred to as the European style of cabinetry. Framed cabinets have a frame around the front edge of the cabinet, and oftentimes are used because of the style they bring.

A benefit of frameless cabinets is that it is much easier to access what is within them, and many that choose a European style of cabinets do so for this reason.

Materials

There are several materials used in the construction of cabinets. The most obvious is the wood that is used on the outside. From cherry to walnut, to pecan and red oak, there are a variety of woods used to make cabinets. Another one of the materials used is MDF, or medium-density-fiberboard. It’s an inexpensive, durable material that’s used in lots of woodworking projects. Particle board, a synthetic wood made from wood chips and sawmill shavings, is also used. Plywood is another material used in the making of cabinets.

Construction

The cabinet itself is constructed like a box, constructed with MDF, particle board, and plywood. The cabinet boxes are reinforced with either triangular beams at the corners or beams along the inside running from side to side. The doors of cabinets are generally made of solid wood, and the shelves are usually made of plywood or MDF.

The Finish

In the marking of cabinets, the finishing process is just as important as the construction. In the old days all finishing was done by hand and piece by piece, but today’s manufacturing facilities sometimes have large-scale processes that can get the finishing down faster and more efficiently.

There are several kinds of finishes that are still used on cabinets. Stains change the natural color of the wood but allow the grains to still be seen. Paints come in many colors and can be used to change the color of the cabinet. Other finishes used in the construction of cabinets are varnishes, which provide an outer protection. A glaze can also be added to give a shiny, somewhat transparent coat on top of the finish.

This is just a basic overview of all that goes into the construction of custom cabinets. Today, computer software can be used to make the entire process more efficient, and is just one of the many ways that cabinet manufacturing and construction have changed over the years.
