What materials do you use to construct your cabinets?
Our custom cabinets are constructed of your choice of Elm or Gingko wood. All of Greentea's custom cabinets are solid reclaimed wood inside and out. All beams, shelves, drawers and doors are made of solid wood. We do not use veneers, MDF or particle board.
How are Greentea Cabinets constructed?
Our cabinets are fully completed pieces of furniture, with tops, backs and sides, adding to their stability.
Are Greentea cabinets strong enough to support the weight of concrete or granite countertops?
Yes, they can support any standard counter on the market. All of our counters and islands are constructed using traditional Japanese joinery techniques. The weight of the countertops is spread out over the solid vertical and horizontal beams which make up the frame.
How durable is the finish on the cabinets? Can they stand up to normal kitchen usage?
Our custom cabinets are finished with a multi-layer lacquer process and then are coated with a standard verathane which protects the wood. They can be wiped with a damp cloth as needed.
Does Greentea Design sell countertops?
No we do not sell countertops but can recommend suppliers in our area. We recommend you have your countertops constructed locally. Our cabinets look best with single slab countertops.
