Mitered Cabinet Doors
Mitered Cabinet Doors have long been admired for their elegant design, detailed profiles, and outstanding craftsmanship. They add beauty and class to kitchen cabinets, free-standing furniture, and custom built-ins. Mitered doors can also be used for picture and mirror frames, appliance panels, and a wide variety of other custom projects.
These doors are beautiful, but building them in a cabinet shop can be an expensive and tedious task. As a result, more cabinet shops are choosing to outsource their mitered doors. WalzCraft takes pride in offering Mitered doors with quality and options that are second to none.
Mitered Cabinet Door & Drawer front Construction
WalzCraft’s high-quality standards are easily recognized in the construction of Mitered Cabinet Doors. Using a True-Blind Mortise & Tenon Joint offers strength while avoiding any exposed end-grain at the corners. Custom-designed, fully integrated male and female cuts ensure a strong, tight joint, and maximize glue adhesion. Custom spacers hold a floating center panel in place, preventing the panel from feeling loose but still allowing expansion and contraction of the wood. These doors are clamped and held under pressure until the glue sets, avoiding the need for pins.
Door assemblers take care to ensure precise, smooth joints throughout the clamping process. This helps to ensure that all Mitered doors maintain a clean look and perfect joint alignment.
Mitered Door & Drawer front styles are defined by the type of center panel used in the door and the number of panels the door will have.
Available styles include an assortment of single and multiple panel designs constructed for insertion of Solid Wood Raised and Reversed Center Panels, 1/4″ Veneered Flat Center Panels, or Glass.
Mitered Stile & Rail Profiles
Mitered Cabinet Door Construction offers many additional profiles that cannot be achieved with a Traditional Mortise & Tenon Construction. WalzCraft offers hundreds of standard Mitered profiles. The profiles are conveniently categorized into families which allow a profile to be ordered in several different widths/looks. Some of the profiles are designed to accept an optional applied molding (Example: S399 Belhaven with MP744 Profile), adding another unique element to the design. Other profiles are designed to simulate the look of inset doors (Example: S328 Barrington with MP642 Profile).
With such an extensive selection of profiles, homeowners are sure to find a Mitered door to fit their taste. Our quality and craftsmanship will ensure that our doors exceed your expectations not only when they are installed, but also after years of use. Contact a WalzCraft Customer Support Specialist to discuss your Mitered door needs.
MP700 Series Profiles
WalzCraft’s MP700 Series Mitered Profile Designs utilize a fully molded profile to create the mitered frame. This process offers a fluid design and the entire profile is created in a single pass through the router. Many of these profiles (like the MP760-76 shown above) have an elliptical or contoured design that cannot be achieved with traditional mortise and tenon construction.
Due to the design of the 700 Series profiles, the Outside Edge detail is integrated into the profile, so it is not an option to change the outside edge profile. Also, Stile & Rail widths are only available in the sizes shown, where the Stiles & Rails of a door must be the same profile and width.
MP600/MP6000 Series Profiles
WalzCraft’s MP600 / MP6000 Series Mitered Profile Designs have added flexibility that is not possible with the MP700 Series profiles. First, you have the ability to choose from a large variety of standard Outside Edge Profiles, including WalzCraft’s ME500 Series Molder Outside Edges. The ME500 Series are designed specifically for the MP600 Series profiles. A second added benefit of these profiles is the ability to customize the width of the Stiles & Rails, as long as all outside Stiles & Rails of a door are the same width.
Note: When different widths of Stiles & Rails are required on a single door, many of the MP600 Series Mitered Profiles can be used with a French Miter construction, complimenting the rest of the Mitered doors on the project.
Center Panel Profiles
Center Panel profile options are available in a range of designs from subtle and classic to innovative and creative. Most center panels are 3/8″ or 3/4″ thick solid wood or MDF, and are available in “Traditional” Raised Panel, Recessed Raised Panel, and Reversed Solid Center Panel (PR324-RVSCP).
Most Raised Panel profile designs are available in different reveal widths to satisfy both your design and functional needs. A common functional example is when the height of your drawer front does not allow for the use of a wider reveal profile used on a door. In most cases, you would choose a center panel profile from the same Design Family that has a smaller reveal or choose to use our Reversed (Flat) Solid Wood Panel (PR324-RVSP).
The WalzCraft standard is to finish / fladder sand all of its products to at least a 180 grit finish sand. Most WalzCraft doors are orbital sanded on both the front and back sides. All cross grain scratches are removed from the face of each door. Each door is then fladder sanded / denibbed on the front and backsides to remove any raised grain and to lightly break any sharp edges. This results in minimal prep work upon delivery for in house finishing.
All Finish Sanding is included at no additional charge.

The following Stile & Rail part sizes for Mitered, French Mitered, and Adventure Series (ASMP) Products will not be subject to additional charges: 1½”, 1¾”, 2″, 2¼”, 2½”, 2¾”, and 3″. Any non-standard miter profile widths that are published in the WalzCraft Specification Catalog are exempt from Non-Standard part size charges.
