One of the most popular choices for residential doors is the panel door. This type of door is strong and gives a great appearance as opposes to battened doors. Our panel doors are also known as stile and rail doors. These great doors are constructed with panels, with the one on display being a 5-panel door. The panels on these doors are usually shaped to a pattern and are installed between the rails and stiles that develop outside the frame of the door. These doors are great for a number of reasons.

Construction Details

The finest furniture captures beauty, efficiency, and strength, all at once. Cabinetry that only possesses one of these qualities will soon agitate you, and those which embody two of the three will leave much to be desired. However, custom cabinets built both to last and to impress will do just that, for generations to come. Each intricate construction detail of your Amish Cabinets of Texas lends itself to the achievement of your unique storage and interior design needs.

Custom Miter Lock Joint

Named after the tall, pointed headdress worn by bishops, this joint describes two beveled joints that form a corner. Miter joints are often criticized for their weakness, but our custom miter design amplifies its strength. We use our specialized miter joints for both cabinet drawer and door construction.

Dove Tail Drawer Joint

Traditionally, dove tail joints were used in absence of suitable wood glues. The tapered shape of the joints held woodwork together; the inherent beauty of the design is a fortunate upside. At once uniform and elaborate, dove tail joints are admired in contemporary carpentry more for aesthetics than functionality. You’ll find the traditional dovetail tucked away in the corners of the drawer boxes. Each drawer box is reinforced with a dado (slide-in) joint design, for superior stability.
