hardwood frame around the cabinet opening to which the doors are attached. When
the doors and drawers are closed the hardwood frame is visible.
- Dadoed construction is used in all of our face frame cabinetry. All
fixed components of the cabinet body are captured in dadoes at both ends of
the part, then glued and nailed for strength. This provides a much
