Below is our Poplar Raised Panel custom cabinet door. Poplar wood is generally straight
grained with a fine, even texture. Creamy-white to pale brown heartwood and sapwood.
Poplar varies from white to a light green with occasional black and purple streaks.
Poplar is a relatively hard hardwood with good durability. Poplar is commonly used
for furniture framing, interior joinery, toys, turnery, matches, crates, boxes, pallets,
packing, plywood core stock, veneer, and pulpwood. Due to the somewhat irregular
coloring poplar is commonly used as a great economical paint grade material. Poplar
can be stained and is sometimes stained to mimic walnut, as it does have some similar
grain characteristics. Some have also used it for rustic applications.
Shown here is our square raised panel cabinet door. All of our raised panel doors
are 5 piece doors. Also sometimes called frame and panel doors. Meaning that the
panel is held in place by the door frame. This is the most traditional way to build
these type of cabinet doors. This allows the raised panel to move with changes in
temperature and humidity making for a very stable door. The raised panel style door
has been used for centuries for entry doors, cabinet and furniture work. For our
solid wood stain grade raised panel doors, all of the wood is hand selected for color
and uniformity. Our solid wood raised panel cabinet doors use full 3/4” thick raised
panels. This makes for a very solid cabinet door.
Raised panel cabinet doors offer a very traditional look, with a solid presence.
Our raised panel doors are available with numerous panel details and can have either
square or edge detailing, such as a round over or finger pull edge detail. Visit
our door profiles page for the various options.
