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.
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.
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
Pros for using MDF cabinet doors or MDF center panels
- Solid 1 piece routed fiberboard doors are excellent for painted finishes

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
MDF is also a great choice for Inset frame cabinetry since expanding
wood doors could cause doors to rub and become difficult to open
