Assembly Methods

 

Here at ImportantCabinets.com, we believe that our customers should be as educated as possible when making their purchase. Each cabinet line has its own unique characteristics, including its style, wood materials, and assembly methods. There are several important factors to be considered before choosing a cabinet, and deciding the procedure to construct your cabinet is extremely important. Cabinets will arrive to your door either Pre Assembled, or with instructions on how to build your cabinets according to their assembly methods. There are four types of assembly methods used in our cabinetry as shown below. If you have any further questions about these methods, please feel free to call us at your convenience.

Pin and Glue Cabinetry
     
  Cam-Lock Cabinets typically are assembled with a cut out on each corner and center of the cabinet permiter. A metal locking wheel is inserted into the "cut out" and interlocks with a metal post that is screwed into the opposite cabinet corner wall. Additional glue is always recommended for a more secure fit.     Dowell and Glue Cabinets are a very simple and popular method in cabinet construction. A pre drilled hole is inserted with a wooden dowell to either side of the cabinets joining walls. Apply glue to the permiter, and around the wooden dowell to create a secure fit.     Pin and Glue assembly is a more advanced assembly method which requires a nail (pin) gun and glue. A thin bead of glue is applied to each adjoining cabinet walls permiter, and then followed with a series of uniform pin insertions, creating a solid corner that will last for years.

Metal Clip Connectors are corner brackets that are applied to each cabinet permiter wall with screws and a thin bead of glue. The brackets create a secure connection, and are perfect for any level of cabinet assembler. Pre Assembled cabinetry is completely constructed for your convenience. Some manufacturers only offer their cabinetry pre assembled, while others do not. WeShipCabinets.com will pre assemble any cabinetry purchase in our warehouse, for an additional labor and shipping fee.

Partial Overlay Cabinetry

Standard Overlay Cabinetry

     
                 
A Full Overlay Cabinet typically has the drawer face and door face extended over the cabinet framing. This style allows for a larger door and a larger drawer face. Modern kitchens with Slab cabinetry typically have Full Overlay cabinets to give a more modern look. Partial Overlay Cabinetry are a cross between Full and Standard Overlay styles. Partial Overlay doors and drawers typically extend close, but not completely to the permiter of the cabinet framing, allowing some of the cabinetry framing to be partially exposed. Standard Overlay Cabinetry allows the cabinets framing to be seen, by creating a smaller door and drawer face on the cabinet. The perimiter of the cabinets are exposed, allowing the frame to be seen on each unit. This style typically is used to give an older look and feel to its cabinets.

  Framed Cabinetry has a wooden frame on the front end of the cabinet. There is usually more of a gap between cabinet doors when stacking two or more cabinets, due to the thicker structure. This cabinet structure can be found with any type of overlay (full, standard, partial) but is widely popular with standard overlays, due to a rustic look that can be achieved when sstacking the cabinets next to each other.  

Inset Cabinetry consists of a framed cabinet box with a door that sits flush within the cabinet frame. Typically there are exposed hinges to give a more rustic look. This style of cabinetry gives an "old world" feel, and are popular with high end kitchens.

 

Frameless Cabinets have no framing structure, and are usually assembled by attaching the two walls of the cabinet box. There is typically corner brackets on the top and bottom of the cabinet box to ensure a stronger construction. Frameless cabinets are very popular because when stacking two different cabinets next to each other, there is a minimal amount of added space between the cabinet doors.
