Elias Woodwork accepts orders either in metric to the nearest millimeter or in inches to the nearest 1/16” . Whenever you are ordering or speaking with a Customer Service Specialist, please refer to cabinet doors WIDTH by HEIGHT.

From a single vanity to a condominium project we will accept orders from one door to several thousands. Although our manufacturing system has been engineered to be able to produce 1 door almost as efficiently as 1000 there will still always be some economies of scale that may influence pricing on large orders. For this reason we may be able to work out lower prices for large projects when you need that extra edge to get the job. This project pricing is established on a job by job basis and is completely separate from your standard discount.

Tenon Door Construction

Elias Woodwork manufactures its wood tenon style cabinet doors without the use of any metal pins. All solid panels are installed with rubber spacers to allow for expansion or contraction in different environmental situations. All plywood panels are glued in on all four sides as plywood is structurally stable and this prevents any possible vibration problems in the future with the plywood panel.
