Showplace Cabinetry offers high-quality cabinet doors in a wide variety of styles to fit any design and trend.

We take pride in our efforts to build cabinet doors that make a statement in your home.

Our collection of door styles consists of three construction methods.

Pendleton Walnut Natural

Cope and Stick

Cope and Stick door construction is currently the most popular style built from five door parts. A frame of two stiles and two rails is built around a center panel.

Stiles and rails are joined together with a mortise (groove in the stile) and tenon (tongue in the rail) joint.

Cambridge Rustic Alder Natural

Mitered

Mitered doors are also constructed with five parts, but the stile and rail ends are cut at a 45-degree angle so they fit together to create the 90-degree frame.

Miter joint construction is similar to Cope and Stick in that the frame parts are secured through the use of a hidden mortise and tenon.

Milan Cherry Natural

Slab

Slab doors are a single piece with no frame, rather than built with a frame and center panel.

Our slab doors are made with a wood-specific laminated and edge-banded MDF core.
