5-Piece MDF Cabinet Doors & Drawer Fronts
WalzCraft offers 5-piece MDF cabinet door and drawer front styles in addition to an extensive collection of 1-piece MDF door/drawer front styles. A 5-piece MDF door can be a stylish alternative to any 5-piece solid wood door style and is available with the same Traditional Stile/Rail, Center Panel, and Outside Edge profiles.
5-piece MDF doors are manufactured at ¾” thickness and allow for further customization of specified Stile & Rail widths beyond our standard 2 ¼” frame. Frame only MDF doors are also offered, along with Mullion and Applied Molding door styles. (Mullion & Applied Molding parts are constructed of a solid wood-maple, hard/soft mixed grade of wood with MDF cabinet door construction).
Benefits of 5-piece MDF cabinet doors include a reasonable cost and acceptance of a paint finish (See WalzCraft’s SolidTone Prefinish Availability). An additional advantage of MDF cabinet doors is the resistance of natural expansion & contraction that sometimes occurs in solid wood doors from moisture and temperature changes within a natural environment. Painted finishes seal this type of door construction and provide a very durable product suitable for many applications including; kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanities, custom built-ins, and even furniture creations.
1-Piece MDF Cabinet Door & Drawer Fronts
WalzCraft also continues to offer an assortment of 1-piece MDF construction door and drawer front styles. One-piece MDF doors/drawer fronts can be ordered in ¾” or 1” thicknesses and are precision routed with a CNC machine to create the selection of profiles on the door style of choice. The number of passes the machine must complete to route the chosen profiles into the door/drawer front determines the square foot price, where more complex profiles require additional passes.
This type of door construction can be ordered raw (intended for a paint finish) or prefinished with one of WalzCraft’s SolidTone paint finishes.
5-Piece Hybrid (Paint Grade Wood Stiles & Rails with an MDF Center Panel)
As an additional alternative to solid wood and 5-piece MDF cabinet doors, WalzCraft also offers a “Hybrid Species” option constructed of solid wood Stile & Rail parts with an MDF Center Panel. WalzCraft recommends this combination for painted doors because the MDF Center Panel expands and contracts less than solid wood.
Our Hybrid Species is available with your choice of Birch, Maple-Hard/Soft Mixed, or Poplar solid wood Paint Grade Stiles & Rails.
