Cabinet Doors:

Fryburg Door offers three options for cabinet doors: Cabinet, Furniture, and FD Grades.

General Cabinet and Furniture Grade Door Facts:

  • Fryburg Door constructs all doors with a full 1” extended tennon in addition to our 3/8” cope. (Some exceptions apply: glass and wide inside edge profiles.)
  • Fryburg Door refers to door framing as uprights (stiles) and cross pieces (rails.)
  • Fryburg Door refers to door sizing as width x height.
  • Our standard “Cabinet Grade” framing is 2 ¼” uprights and 2 ¾” cross pieces. You may request any width. Indicate if the framing widths are different than our standard.
  • Standard framing will vary with certain applied molding combinations.
  • All Fryburg Doors, regardless of the grade, adhere to a tolerance of plus or minus 1/32.”
  • Warp tolerance – up to 1/8”warp on doors under 48.”
  • Bow – Fryburg Door warrants bow: over 1/16” under 40” and over 1/8” on 40-48.”
  • All Fryburg Doors, regardless of the grade, have a stain groove that allows stain onto the panel, so pre-staining panels is not necessary.
  • All “Cabinet Grade” doors have a color and grain matched center panel and are hand sanded to 180 grit.
  • All “Furniture Grade” doors have a color matched and hand sanded center panel and entire door machine sanded only after assembly to 180 grit, cross grain is typical. Standard framing on furniture grade is 2 ¼” all around.

Fryburg Door encourages that ALL DOORS THAT EXCEED 48” in length be made into a multiple panel product. You must specify on all multiple panel doors how many panels that you want. Fryburg Door will not assume how many panels that you may want based on door size.

Fryburg Door will not warrant any door or end panel over 48” long, regardless of the number of panels.

Doors must be ordered by “exact size” and not opening size. Fryburg Door does not figure door sizes off of opening dimensions.
