Estate Millwork manufactures elegant beadboard cabinet doors from solid hardwood with true rail and stile joinery. Our beadboard cabinet doors can be ordered in any size in a variety of styles and include custom moulded 3/8 beadboard. Beadboard cabinetry is a traditional cabinet style and is featured as vernacular in Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard, the Hamptons and many shore and lake locations. The beadboard field is not plywood, veneer or cheap thermafoil, but rather individually molded tongue and groove beadboard which gives the cabinet doors true authenticity and depth of detail. Our finishing options include any Sherwin Williams Color, as well as unfinished, primed, or clear coat stain. In addition to beadboard cabinet doors, you can complete your kitchen design using our beadboard drawer fronts.
The easiest way to reface an entire kitchen, bathroom or vanity using beadboard cabinet doors is to measure the largest width and length of each existing cabinet door, usually on the back, or closing face of the door. You can use our web app to quickly enter your dimensions and material preferences to get an instant price and rendering (in the exact color and style/) of your replacement cabinet doors. In most cases, the exsiting cabinet hinges can be reused when you install the new cabinet doors. Our beadboard cabinet doors can be manufactured in any size and can be ordered at full wall size to make elegant beadboard wainscoting as well.
Our beadboard cabinet door frames an be ordered in any thickness and any rail and stile dimensions. Each rail is machined with a true monolithic tenon and each stile has matching true mortises machined to achieve the tightest, strongest furniture-grade joint. The beadboard field in the cabinet door is crafted from individual boards molded with a 3/8 bead and set in a floating field mortise to allow for the minor expansion and contraction of wood in changing environments. The lumber we use is FAS clear grade and you can select from over 15 species including Hard Maple, White Oak, Mahogany, and Teak. Refacing existing cabinetry is an affordable way to upgrade the visual aesthetic and functionality of existing kitchen, bath and built-in cabinet doors.
Each set of custom cabinet doors we sell is hand-crafted using strong, beautiful, top-grade hardwood. An Estate Millwork door is made from solid wood rails and stiles, and is assembled using a time-tested method of peg-and-hole construction: mortise-and-tenon joinery. This assembly technique, which dates back to ancient China, is the strongest, most durable way to build fine home furnishings.
"No shortcuts" is our motto at Estate Millwork. We refuse to sell any customer a set of cabinet doors made from faux wood or veneers. We require careful, precise measuring and sawing -- because cabinet doors must fit perfectly to operate. We also frown upon slapdash assembly techniques that require glue or other cheap adhesives. Our heirloom-quality custom cabinet doors will last for generations to come, and with very little maintenance.
The short answer: anything.
Our customers install our cabinet doors in studies, dens, bedrooms, and kitchens. These quality custom doors make excellent wedding gifts, birthday presents, and new-baby furnishings. Apartment-dwellers and condominium owners love our cabinet doors, too. Installation is easy, and measuring's a cinch just use our custom online design tools to specify the measurements you need.
Customization options are limitless, so your wood cabinet doors will suit any room in your home. We offer nine gorgeous hardwood varieties, which can be stained or painted to match any type of d cor. We also carry three lines of doors the Philadelphia flat-panel collection, the Tuxedo Park raised-panel collection, and the Sonoma louvered collection. Each line features over a half-dozen panel styles and arrangements.
Your custom options don't end there. We also offer several stylized wood cuts, and can do custom inlays or beveling upon request. For those customers who require tailor-made cabinet doors to fit unusual spaces, we offer radius work, as well. Some customers opt to submit sketches or AutoCAD drawings of their dream cabinet doors, which our workers use as patterns. (Are you artistically inclined? Feel free to share your ideas.) Other customers opt for special hardware on their cabinet doors. You can choose from elegant strap hinges, New York-style L hinges, and classic square hinges to complement your new custom cabinetry.
Sustainability is a major goal of Estate Millwork's custom cabinet door manufacturing process. Each and every wood dealer we work with makes a commitment to sustainable wood harvest techniques. Whether the wood we use in your custom cabinet doors is a common domestic hardwood or an import, our wood suppliers stress the importance of renewable forestry.
Eco-consciousness doesn't stop there. The plant where we make our cabinet doors has strict recycling requirements. If our workers have wood scraps left over after making cabinet doors, they either use them in shutters, or burn them to fuel the plant. Plant managers enforce temperature controls throughout the year, and strategically schedule work shifts to ensure maximum fuel efficiency. Estate Millwork customers like you benefit from this eco-conscious care we can lower the prices on the custom cabinet doors we sell.

Poplar hardwood lacking bold coloration or an exciting grain pattern has a pale olive-yellow brown heartwood and sapwood is lighter off-white or gray with greenish hues and doesn't often get the respect we feel it deserves. The Poplar tree is widespread across all of North America and Europe, and it grows very rapidly and to large sizes, making it very easy to sustain.
Because the wood is often painted or used in secondary applications where it isn’t visible, it is very easy to find wide, clear sections of Poplar for a variety of uses.Poplar lumber is pretty soft and very easy to work. But botanically speaking it is a hardwood meaning it is a deciduous tree. But it is highly stable, easily available in width and length, and takes paint and stain famously well. However using Poplar as a stain grade species is often overlooked. Some will call Poplar wood "poor man's Cherry" as it oxidizes over time to a much darker shade of brown.
Poplar hardwood is a versatile and affordable choice that offers a wide range of possibilities for woodworking and interior design projects. Poplar hardwood is known for its pale, creamy color with subtle green or brown undertones. This neutral hue allows it to adapt well to a variety of finishes, making it an ideal canvas for your creative ideas. Whether you're crafting custom cabinets, molding, or furniture, poplar hardwood can be transformed to match your preferred aesthetic, from classic and traditional to modern and sleek. One of the standout features of poplar hardwood is its ease of workability. It is a soft hardwood that machines, sands, and finishes with ease, making it an excellent choice for those who want a wood that is friendly to both hand and power tools. Its stable grain pattern and consistent texture add to its versatility and suitability for detailed woodworking. Moreover, poplar hardwood is an environmentally friendly option as it is readily available and sustainable. It's a renewable resource that grows relatively quickly, making it an eco-conscious choice for those who are mindful of their environmental impact.
At Estate Millwork we air dry much of our lumber, and after air drying we finish drying in low wattage dehumidification kilns.
Every piece of wood we purchase is used to the fullest on products, at Estate Millwork we have a very high yield ratio of 94 percent due to the use of automated saws and optimizing software. The remainimg 6 percent which is mostly sawdust and chips are either burned to heat our plant or send to local cattle farmers for bedding and composting.
Nothing is wasted. Some of Appalachian lumber we use comes from Amish farmers in our county who harvest with horses instead of mechanized equipment, and do our rough sawing on 1920s sawmills that are also extremely low input compared to larger commercial sawmills of today. All of our imported lumber is plantation grown, and not harvested from natural forests.
