Traditional Mortise & Tenon Cabinet Doors

Traditional Mortise & Tenon Doors are the most popular type of cabinet door construction within the woodworking industry. This method of construction is standard in many kitchen designs, refacing projects, furniture pieces, and other applications because of its flexibility in design, ranging anywhere from simple to complex and contemporary to traditional.

WalzCraft Traditional Mortise & Tenon Doors can be ordered in many ways. Our commitment to offering a large variety of features allows the highest level of customization within the industry. Traditional door styles most commonly have a solid wood raised or veneered flat center panel with a square or arched top design. Alternative features include prepped for glass (designer glass is also available), applied moldings, mullion designs, lattice center panels, and louvers.

Cabinet Door Profile Options

View Stile and Rail Profiles for Mortise and Tenon Cabinet Doors View Center Panel Profiles for Cabinet Doors View Outisde Edge Profile options

The three main profiles of Mortise & Tenon Door Styles are the Stile & Rail Profile, Center Panel Profile, and Outside Edge Profile. Veneer Flat Panel Door Styles do not use a Center Panel Profile because they are built with a 1/4″ flat veneered center panel. In addition to these profile options, WalzCraft offers several other design options that will allow you to enhance the appearance of a cabinet door.  

Stile and Rail Profiles

The Stile & Rail Profile is the inside profile (or detail) for the frame of the cabinet door. Another name for this profile is the Cope & Stick Profile of the inside edge.

WalzCraft offers over 50 different designs of Stile & Rail Profiles as well as matching profiles that are designed for a glass insert. Beyond the more traditional designs are Mirrored Joint Profiles, Old World Profiles, and profiles engineered to be used with Applied Molding.

Center Panel Profile Options

The Center Panel Profile is the design around the perimeter of the center panel. WalzCraft offers many varieties of raised, flat (reverse) solid wood, and recessed center panel profiles.

Most profiles are displayed in families of similar design with different reveals, which allows you to maintain the same profile design for small components like drawer fronts.

The PR324-10 profile allows you to create a flat panel look with a solid wood center panel (reversed center panel).

Value Added Cabinet Door Features


Finish Sanding

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 prefinishing.

All Finish Sanding is included at no additional charge.

Learn more about sanding and recommended prep work.

Flexible Stile & Rail Width

Traditional construction also allows the added benefit of customizing Stile & Rail widths beyond the 2 ¼” standard, to allow for a higher end look without added cost. Reducing Stile & Rail widths on Traditional, Old World, Mitered and MDF/RTF doors gives you the ability to order doors smaller than the printed minimum size.

The following Stile & Rail part sizes for Traditional, Old World, Mitered and MDF/RTF products will not be subject to additional charges: 1½”, 1¾”, 2″, 2¼”, 2½”, 2¾”, 3″, 3¼”, 3½”, 3¾”, 4″, 4¼”, 4½”, 4¾”, 5″, 5¼”, 5½”, 5¾”, 6″, 7″, 8″, 9″ and 10″.


WalzCraft’s Traditional Mortise & Tenon Doors are professionally crafted using a ‘pinless’ construction method, providing a more organic look and eliminating the use of pins in door joints – ultimately providing the highest level of cabinet door available.
