Solid Wood Doors
People love the beauty and durability of wood. Nothing could be more natural. Compare Wellborn’s solid wood doors to some other manufacturers’ and you will see that many make doors of only thin veneers that look like solid wood. On the surface however, you can quickly tell the difference, and if you take a close look, you will agree that the beauty of solid wood is vastly different. That is why Wellborn uses solid wood from the USA. Enjoy the lasting beauty and strength of a solid wood product for a lifetime.
Quality Begins With the Tree
Wellborn quality permeates every step of the cabinet process, beginning with the logs that are hand picked for our vertically integrated sawmill.
Solid Wood Door Stiles and Rails
Solid Wood Raised Center Panel
Notch and Peg System
Wellborn’s solid wood doors and drawer fronts are 100% natural, solid hardwood, grown in the United States, and are hand selected from our own lumber yard and timber processing mill.
Wellborn has several doors that incorporate the strength and beauty of mitered construction. The stiles are cut at a 45° angle, then precisely aligned with a blind mortise and tenon joint and glued.
Crafted By People Who Care
The inspectors on the chop saws trim stacks of kiln-dried lumber daily, selecting only top quality parts. Each door panel’s parts are hand selected and strategically positioned for matching wood grain and color consistency. Doors, drawer fronts and face frames are hand sanded, front and back, to eliminate cross grain scratches and burley marks. A notch and peg system designed into the top and bottom of the center panel positions it securely within the door’s stiles and rails.
Foam inserts are placed within the door frames before the center panel is installed to stabilize the panel and allow for expansion that may occur due to changes in humidity.
Each door is inspected for color variation and part defects to ensure Wellborn’s standard of superior quality.
Recessed Panel Doors
Hardwood veneers are thin slices of wood which are bonded to a reconstructed wood product. Wellborn offers economically priced recessed panel doors that have a 3⁄16” thick wood veneer center panel surrounded by solid wood stiles and rails. Drawer fronts and face frames are select quality solid hardwood.
Most door hinges have 6-way adjustability — vertically, horizontally, and in and out — and feature a Lifetime Warranty with our WellLine Hinges. Some product lines are standard with soft close hinge feature.

Long Term Beauty
Wellborn stays abreast of the latest innovations in cabinetry door design with the superior quality of our thermofoil doors. Two computerized diamond-head routers shape the door and drawer front edge profiles, as well as the raised panel appearance of the door styles. A tough, scratch resistant vinyl is thermally formed and sealed to provide a strong, durable surface, resistant to most household wear. Today’s contemporary style kitchens call for the clean sleek styling of our thermofoil doors.
Our thermofoil doors are ¾” thick. A five-piece raised panel appearance is created by intricately routing the door details from a single solid piece of medium density fiberboard.
The doors are evenly sprayed with an adhesive to create a strong bond between the tough vinyl covering as it is thermally formed and sealed.
Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) Cabinet Doors
What is MDF and how is it constructed?
Using high pressure and temperatures, MDF is formed by combining wood fibers with a wax resin binder to form panels. It is made of wood veneer. It is much more dense than normal particle board. This is a durable and tough wood product, commonly used in the construction industry.
Pros for using MDF cabinet doors or MDF center panels
Solid 1 piece routed fiberboard doors are excellent for painted finishes
It is a natural for painted finishes, providing a beautiful smooth finish, without wood grain showing through
Painted finishes on MDF will not crack in the joints
MDF does not expand or contract in humid/moist environments
Center panels made of MDF will not contract like wood. This is wonderful because when a wood center panel contracts the center panel pulls away slightly from the frame and can result in a slight area of unfinished wood showing
MDF is also a great choice for Inset frame cabinetry since expanding wood doors could cause doors to rub and become difficult to open
It is made 100% of recycled product
