Below is our Red Oak Raised Panel custom cabinet door. Red Oak wood is a straight
grained with a coarse texture and prominent rays. Light reddish tan heartwood and
narrow, almost white sapwood. Red Oak is a very hard and durable hardwood with great
wear resistance. Read Oak is commonly used for cabinets, furniture, millwork, musical
instruments, plywood, flooring, turnery, boxes, caskets, pallets, heavy construction,
and many other applications. Oak accepts stain very well, from light to dark. Due
to its rather coarse grain patterns Red Oak is not recommended for painting as this
coarse grain will show under some painted finishes. Of course if this is the look
you desire for your painted finishes then Red Oak may be an excellent choice.
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.
