Yes, we think that is a bit short too. Within this mix, most of the doors will be mitered corner doors (the frame pieces that connect with 45 degree joints). A few choices will actually have raised panels. The Ashford Maple, Ashford Oak, Charleston Maple, and Charleston Arch will be raised panel doors. The remained are plywood panel or RRP (reversed raised panel) which still yeilds a flat panel look, but with a thicker panel. The miter corner door frames are the simpler cut frames. Not a lot of ornamentation to them. There will be waves, grooves, and scrolls, but minimal. The Windsor Maple style comes with a beaded panel, a nice look especially when considering glazed doors. Some styles are repeats of themselves with wider frame profiles. We will try to note the basics under each picture below.
Each picture below is a representation of the door design. All Maple doors are available in 15 maple finish options, but we show just the one picture on this page. Clicking or tapping on a picture will take you to that page with a lot more info about the door and drawer front and most will show 15 images of the Maple colors, and 5 finish options for the few doors that are available in oak. All doors can come unfinished also. There are two options for all the maple doors when it comes to unfinished: stain grade or paint grade. Stain grade is a solid wood frame with a veneer plywood panel, a solid wood RRP panel, or a solid wood raised panel. Paint grade will be the solid wood frame, but the panel option will be MDF for plywood, RRP, or raised panel. The MDF panels we have been told paint better. But if planning on staining or clear coating, go with the stain grade wood if selecting unfinished.
The Belmont II and Quincy designs are wider frame doors. A little more bold looking. Both have options of slab drawer fronts or matching 5-piece drawer fronts.
Quick thought to express about grain direction
When ordering cabinet doors and drawer fronts with Woodmont, here are some particulars about grain direction. Doors are composed of 4 frame pieces surrounding a panel. The top and bottom rails of a door have a horizontal grain. The left and right rails have a vertical grain. This is true on ALL doors. Then the wood panel on a door, either veneered plywood or solid raised panel will always have a vertical grain (up and down). Slab drawer fronts, the solid wood drawer fronts will always have a horizontal grain. The only exception is the Bristol Maple design which is a veneer door, it's drawer front will have a vertical grain just as the doors do in that style.
The 5-piece drawer fronts are a little more tricky on grain. All 5-piece drawer fronts with plywood panels will have a vertical grain on the panel. BUT, any drawer fronts ordered with an RRP (reversed raised panel) solid wood drawer front, will have a horizontal grain. The grain on solid wood will almost always flow with the longest direction of that piece of wood.
When ordering any Maple doors in the solid paint colors, the panels, plywood, RRP, or BD, will be MDF. MDF has no grain direction, there is no grain. If requesting any unfinished Maple doors as Unfinished Paint Grade, those also will come with MDF panels. MDF panels paint better for solid tone colors. All translucent stain colors always come with real wood panels.
