New River Cabinetry framed cabinets are constructed from the finest in wood materials. Wood, being a product of nature, varies from one piece to the next, each having its own characteristics.
The solid hardwood doors and drawer fronts used in New River Cabinetry are made up of many pieces of wood. Each is unique and will likely contain natural variations in color. The lighter pieces of wood grow closer to the tree’s bark, while the darker pieces are closer to its center. All are equally strong and impact the beauty and value. The unique grain patterns found in solid hardwood are related to the tree’s growth rings and the knots where limbs once joined the tree’s trunk. These natural markings are proof of your hardwood’s origins and have absolutely no effect on its durability and structural integrity. Trees absorb minerals and other essential elements as they grow and prosper. You may see their traces in the wood in your cabinetry.
