We’re not interested in mass producing run-of-the-mill custom cabinetry. Brilliant Furnishings builds, finishes, and installs all cabinetry according to the Woodwork Institute’s standards for “premium grade”, described briefly as, “a superior quality of workmanship and materials”.

  • We use only furniture grade hardwood lumber and plywoods; no particle board!

  • In our commitment to wise stewardship, all of our plywoods are Formaldehyde free, even when FSC certification is not called for in the project.

  • All cabinet body partitions are assembled with glued dadoes and pocket screws.

  • Face frames are also assembled with pocket screws and dovetails and are then back-screwed, splined, glued, and clamped to cabinet bodies; no nails!

  • All drawers and roll–outs are made with 9-ply Baltic Birch  or 5/8" solid lumber and are assembled with dovetails.

  • According to premium grade standards, cabinet interiors are considered semi-exposed and are therefore finished just as the exteriors: evenly stained and finished with three coats of durable clear, or painted, both with UV protected pre-catalyzed lacquer, conversion varnish, or one of our wide variety of very low VOC waterborne products.
