Raised panel cabinets doors convey a more traditional style and are one of the more formal designs, used in kitchens. The middle section of the door is raised, creating a groove between the door’s frame and the central panel. This groove creates a clear visual rectangle that defines each door and panel, and creates highlights and shadows that bring depth to the cabinetry.
The style leans traditional because they harken back to the American colonial era, when raised panel cabinetry in the home was a sign of wealth since they were more costly to make. So if you are looking for a traditional kitchen there is nothing more beautiful than the raised panel with its carved detailing and depth.
Estate Millwork manufactures custom crafted solid raised panel cabinet doors from premium hardwoods
Our hand made solid wood cabinets can be integrated into existing kitchens, bathrooms or studies. We fabricate beautiful raised panel cabinet doors and mullioned products that can be used to reface existing casework and cabinetry, or in a variety of other applications.
Featuring traditional 18th Century rail and stile construction, solid floating panels and mortise and tenon joinery, these cabinet doors are of collector furniture quality. We can fabricate any custom raised panel cabinet door to your custom designs, and can provide unique old world details including inlays, applied mouldings, beveling and radius work. Specify bookmatching, crotch grains or quarter sawing to capture the true elegant potential of custom cabinetry.
We offer both paint grade and stain grade raised panel cabinet doors in a variety of hardwoods and can work from our standard elegant designs, or your architectural drawings and sketches.
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.

Teak wood is known for its lovely golden brown color, although when freshly machined, it can sometimes have a variable pattern. Over time, and with exposure to sun and air, the streaks mellow into the signature golden brown appearance for which Teak is so prized.
Because Teak grows in a sandy soil it has a very high naturally occurring silica content, and this silica impregnates the fibers of the wood making it nearly waterproof. As well as making the wood naturally water resistant the wood’s natural oils double as natural insect repellents. Once milled, Teak holds its shape extremely well, and that stability makes it such an attractive wood for yacht builders, as well as for other builders whose materials must perform under harsh conditions and within tight tolerances.
This resin and oil content that makes Teak wood such an outstanding exterior wood is what can also cause the dramatic color variance we see when the wood is freshly planed and cut. Greys, greens, oranges and harsh streaks will show up immediately and that prized honey brown color is gone, while this can alarming but it is important to realize that this will fade with time.
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.
