How big can cabinets be built?

Cabinet sizes are limited by the size of our machinery and by shipping considerations. You will also need to consider how you will move a large cabinet through your building. Taking into consideration the size of the doorways through which it will need to move and how tall ceilings are. In general we fabricate cabinets no wider than 48″, no taller than 96″ and no deeper than 48″. However, extremely large cabinets can be shipped in parts for ease of shipment and movement through buildings. For example, a 60″ x 83″ x 40″ cabinet would be shipped knocked down for the onsite assembly.

What is a filler?

A filler is a strip of panel which will hold your cabinet away from the wall. This serves two purposes:
– It ensures that there is enough room between the cabinet and the wall that doors and drawers open without impediment.
– It allows your installer to scribe the filler to conform with wall imperfections.
Fillers are available in base, wall, tall and corner applications.

Also to keep costs down, some customers request that the bottoms of their wall cabinets be finished with white materials. While this will save some money, a white wall cabinet bottom will not be as attractive as a wall cabinet which is fabricated with matching decorative laminate materials.

Why isn't there a toe kick on my cabinet? It's only raw plywood!

Plywood ladder bases are durable and moisture resistant and can be finished with any number of materials including tile, carpet, vinyl/rubber base trim or paint. CW-USA cabinets must be leveled, using shims or furring strips, we leave the ladder base unfinished it would not be possible to cover the shims needed for leveling.
