OUR WOOD SPECIES
Like every person, every type of wood species is unique, with its own style and personality. Although there are several elements to consider when creating your dream kitchen, such as engineered wood versus solid wood, the thickness of the door, the model and more, the wood species you choose will be the deciding factor when it comes to the look, strength and durability of your new kitchen. In this section, we present the main species used in the manufacture of cabinets, among the wide range of wood species that are available on the market.
A veneer is a sheet of wood obtained by unrolling or slicing a log. It is available in various thicknesses and in all the types of wood listed above, along with most of the rare or exotic species.
Plywood is a wood panel made of glued and compressed wood veneer layers. To increase the strength, the orientation of the grain is alternated and the amount of layers is usually an odd number. It is very solid and resists deformations, shocks and changes in temperature. Plywood is available in all the species listed above.
MDF, or medium-density fiberboard, is made of a mixture of hardwood and softwood fibers that have been reduced to fine particles and then bound with a mixture of resin, glue and wax. The mix is then compressed at high temperature to form a board. MDF is available for certain models.
