Our face frames are 1¾” wide, 17% more than many in the industry
which are 1½”. Wider face frames keep the joints from separating,
helps ensure cabinet squareness and add strength.
Wellborn face frames are hand sanded on the inside edges and
fronts to provide a smooth, all around surface and to protect
your hands and arms from scratches when taking items in and
out of your cabinetry.
Blind Mortise and Tenon Joints
Wellborn uses blind mortise and tenon joints in our face frame
assembly, an age-old wood joinery method that has long been
recognized as a sign of high quality. This creates a stronger
joint and prevents splitting of the stiles.
The mortise and tenon joints on the face frame are glued and locked
into place by hand, and are carefully inspected by trained eyes for quality.
The face frames are then machine squared and stapled into place,
ensuring cabinet squareness and adding extra strength.
