Premium High Quality Walnut Flat Panel Cabinet Doors
Shaker Cabinet Doors, Classic yet Modern
While many traditional styles have fallen from favor, Flat Panel or sometimes known as the popular variant Shaker-style cabinets have only gained in popularity, thanks to their minimalist but still distinctive look. Each flat panel cabinet door has five segments: vertical pieces on the sides called stiles, horizontal pieces on the top and bottom called rails, and a recessed panel in the middle. These doors are often considered a classic, simple look that never really goes out of style.
Benefits of Flat Panel Cabinet Doors
Flat Panel cabinet doors have a chameleon-like quality making it easy to style your kitchen how you want around them. Mix them with a concrete countertop for a more industrial look or a wooden countertop for a rustic country look. As with glass-front cabinets, it’s quite acceptable to combine Shaker with flat-front styles.

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.

Wood Cabinet Door Construction: Cost-Efficient, Environmentally Aware
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.

Walnut Rich in Color and History
Walnut Hardwood Lumber is a premium domestic hardwood valued for its rich color and excellent finishing qualities. Walnut has a slightly open grain varying from wavy to irregular with an even and uniform medium to coarse texture. Walnut is a unique domestic species, because there are no other North American species of wood with the same distinct chocolate brown colored heartwood. The wood's rich tones make for excellent doors and paneling, and as a furniture wood, it is hard to beat.
Walnut gained popularity back when colonists started importing the lumber to Europe for furniture and interior woorwork, because it was so plentiful then it was easier and cheaper to obtain than Mahogany.
Today, Walnut is still highly prized for furniture and interior woodwork, but it is growing in popularity is starting to match that of Cherry. A significant development in the Walnut lumber use is in the marine industry, boat builders are now using the dark color on yacht interiors as a contrast to the lighter tones of Teak. At heart Walnut wood is a statement of luxury and is used in many applications to that effect.
Freshly milled Walnut can exhibit many different color hues, from deep browns and purples to light creams. Steaming Walnut will even out some of those color variations and creates a much more uniform and mellow chocolate color, over time and with oxidation and exposure to the sun Walnut will lighten in color and blends well with most other species.
Handcrafted with Sustainably Harvested Lumber
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.
