Common Options for Wood Box Design

Top Edge

To optimize wood box design, the following top edge profiles are available at no additional charge with the exception of the step down construction (See Green dovetails, CM-070).

For the bullnose radius, the default is step down construction:

  • the ends (front and back) are set to full height.
  • with 1/2” sides, the sides are dropped 1/8” below the ends.
  • with 5/8” sides, the sides are dropped 1/4” below the ends.

Finish

Drawer boxes are designed to be finished with a waterborne clear finish, which contains low volatile organic compounds (VOC), and no formaldehyde. This finish exceeds the requirements of ANSI/NKCA resistance for kitchens, passes KCMA, and meets Mobelfakta (an internationally recognized quality standard) basic requirements for tabletops (domestic use). Also, this finish has been given the MAS Environmental “Certified Green” approval for LEEDs projects.

The finishing option consists of 1 sealer coat and 1 top coat.

  • if assembled box is less than or equal to 100 lineal inches (CM-020).
  • if assembled box is greater than 100 lineal inches (CM-021).

Notch

Two (2) standard undermount slide notching widths are offered for the bottom rear of the box, along with a hook hole. The depth of the notch matches the requested inset (i.e., 1/2”, 9/16”, etc.)

  • 2” wide notch for back of box (CM-030).
  • 3-3/4” wide notch for back of box (CM-031).
