Fine Millwork. 100% American Made with Pride in Pennsylvania's Allegheny Mountains412.641.0177
Solid mortise and tenon joints, deep seated louvers with rich louver profiles add depth and tradition to any kitchen. Use our website to explore various materials, finishes and styles and order your cabinets to your exact specifications.
Our cabinet doors are hand crafted using traditional mortise and tenon joinery, premium materials and a hand finishing process that results in hardwood quality that is very difficult to find today. We abhor melamine and particle board -- it has no place in your kitchen so upgrade with premium quality traditional cabinetry built expressly for you.
Our Louvered doors can be produced for bathroom vanities, built in closets, locker rooms and toilet rooms, or even marine applications. Our full product line is completely customizable for your sizes, application and material or finish preferences. You can order custom louver pitches to minimize or maximize air flow and visibility, or build your doors from hardy teak for breathtaking beauty for outdoor or marine applications.
Each Estate Millwork louvered cabinet door is built with attention to quality at every step of the way. We hand select our hardwoods, and never use wood substitutes or cheap manufacturing techniques like finger jointing or veneering. Our louvers are custom moulded on special equipment that we have developed to drive the costs out of fine cabinetry, while keeping the quality in. We control all aspects of the rough sawing, jointing, planing, machining, assembly and detailing with sophisticated software that begins with this website, and carries through to our hand sanding and finishing of the final product. We have married the elegance of 18th century millwork and furniture making with the modern conveniences of a dynamic web presence, CNC and factory automation.
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.

Red Oak, like most of the North American Oaks, is very hearty and grows quite large, it is a very dense hardwood with a medium, open-pored texture. It has a prominent grain stripe that is straight and can be coarser than White Oak when surfaced. Red Oak is a strong species that bends rather well due to its open grain structure, but it can dull cutting edges rapidly, so sharp tools are a necessity to prevent splintering.
It should be noted that due to its high level of tannins, Red Oak will corrode steel fasteners; this can then cause staining of the wood over time. Because of open pores and grain, Red Oak will finish well, but a uniform surface can sometimes be hard to obtain without a pore filler.
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.
