Burrows Cabinets’ products are made from the finest hardwoods and component materials and we take extra steps in our construction methods to make sure your cabinet will look great for many years and hold up to rigorous use.

Cabinet Construction

We build a custom-measured, face frame cabinet and our standard construction features a fully dadoed construction method where the ends and shelves of the box are “locked” into a dado on the back side of the face frame.  The face frame is dadoed to the cabinet body and all body parts are dadoed together.  Glue is applied in the dado and the box parts are screwed into the back side of the face frame.
