One of the ways that lesser cabinet companies will try to pass off their cabinets as quality products while cutting corners and saving money is to make cabinets that look decent but are made with cheap composite woods. Making sure that you are buying solid wood cabinets is one of the easiest ways to weed out the lesser companies that you want to avoid.
At Cabinet City, all of our traditional American cabinet lines are made with solid wood doors and solid wood frames. For those looking for a truly high-end cabinet experience, we offer the American Walnut which, of course, is made from an American sourced Walnut wood. Naturally, the American Walnut is also noticeably more expensive than our other cabinet lines. Cabinet City uses Rubber Tree wood for the other cabinet lines that we offer. Rubber tree wood is an excellent hardwood to use for cabinets and furniture. With a Janka hardness rating of 995 pounds, Rubber tree wood is harder than Cherry wood but not as hard as Oak or Maple wood. The great part about Rubber tree wood is that the trees are planted, grown, and then harvested for rubber and latex products. Repurposing the discarded wood makes the cabinets fairly eco-friendly and keeps the cost down lower than what you can expect from more traditional woods like Oak, Maple, Cherry, and Walnut.
