     The EcoDesigner Cabinet   

Lumber Parts -- Choice of Alder, Bamboo, Beech, Yellow Birch, American Cherry, Brazilian Cherry (Jatoba), Hickory & Pecan, Vertical Grain Fir, Eastern White Maple, African Mahogany, Red Oak, Quarter Sawn White Oak, Sapele, Teak, Poplar, and Black Walnut (all FSC). Alder typically has the smallest carbon footprint because it grows locally and abundantly. In addition, it has tremendous finish versatility from rustic to elegant.

Panel Parts -- No added urea-formaldehyde (NAUF). Choice of Prefinished Plywood (FSC) or wood print melamine laminated Particle Board or Straw Board ( SCS ). Matching species veneers use Veneer Plywood (FSC).

Finish -- Our use of 100% Hand-Wiped Stain or Natural finishes saves massive amounts of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from entering the atmosphere compared to spray stains used by most cabinet plants. For the exterior topcoat, choose between No Formaldehyde Catalyzed Lacquer and a more durable Low Formaldehyde Conversion Varnish, all 100% domestically applied.

Packaging -- No corrugated paper packaging is used at all. Unlike virtually all other cabinet manufacturers, we deliver our products protected by reusable heavy furniture pads , saving our customers the nuisance and cost of disposing of any cardboard.

Durability -- Our "Premium Furniture Construction" combines time-proven joinery with modern finishing techniques.     Also see the EcoDesigner Process .
