Stock Ready-to-Assembly (RTA) Cabinets

Our Stock RTA cabinets are imported and flat packed ready to ship from various warehouses, with vast a majority of them shipping from Southern California. More than three quarters of our stock product lines are framed cabinets, and the rest are frameless. Specifications, available sizes and accessories of stock lines are slightly different from each other.


Construction for framed cabinet

Framed Cabinets:

  • The majority of our stock cabinets are built using a framed construction - a 'face frame' is in between the cabinet box and door and drawer fronts. The cabinet hardware (hinges and drawer glides) are mounted on the face frame. When the cabinet doors and drawers are closed, the face frame is visible. 

  • The size of the reveal (gap in between doors and gap between door and drawer front) determines whether it is half or semi-full overlay.

Construction of stock frameless cabinet

Frameless Cabinets:

  • For frameless cabinets, cabinet doors and drawers are attached directly to the side panels of the cabinet box. By definition they are always considered full overlay, and offer more interior storage space than framed cabinets. 

  • Some of our stock frameless cabinets have detachable adjustable legs with toe kick cover; and some have integrated toe kick, where the box side panels are recessed at the bottom to form the toe kick portion.


Most of our framed stock cabinets are constructed with 5/8" or 1/2" plywood and all of our frameless stock cabinets are constructed with 3/4" plywood material. 

  • The majority of our stock cabinets have natural wood interior finish. Almost all of our stock cabinets have full depth adjustable shelves, some use stainless steel shelf pins and some use plastic shelf inserts.

  • Some stock cabinets require finished end panels to cover exposed sides: framed cabinets need 1/4" thick finished skin panel that fits behind the 'lip' of the face frame; frameless cabinets offer 3/4" finished panels that are made of door material, and the finished panels' 3/4" front edges flush with the cabinet doors and drawer fronts.

Cabinet door / drawer front

  • Our stock cabinet doors are crafted from many wood species such as birch and maple. 

  • Most doors are ¾” thick, and are coated with oil based finishing that comply with CARB II and E1 environmental standards.

  • Door / drawer pulls are not included with stock cabinets.

Drawer Box

  • Most of our drawer boxes are made of wood and have a dovetail construction. The 5-piece drawer boxes do not come pre-assembled. 

  • Drawer box sides are typically made of 5/8" solid poplar wood and drawer box bottom are made of ¼” – ½” thick plywood with wood veneer.

  • Most of our drawer boxes are clear-coat finished.

Hinges and drawer glides

  • Almost all of the drawer glides for our stock RTA cabinets are soft close undermount, and most hinges are adjustable with a 110° opening angle with soft-closing feature.

All hinges, drawer glides are imported brands and cannot be easily upgraded to premium hardware such as Blum®.


All-in-one packing for RTA cabinet

Doors and fronts are packing separately

  • The majority of our stock RTA cabinets are flat packed in a single corrugated cardboard box for each unit. For example, if you order one B18 (one door one drawer 18” wide base unit), the following component will be all packed inside: cabinet box & drawer box components, doors & drawer fronts (including face frame if any), and hardware such as hinges and drawer glides. 

  • It is not possible to order component or cabinet doors only for each cabinet unit.

  • For stock frameless ready-to-assemble cabinets, the cabinet doors and drawer fronts are packed separately from the rest: cabinet box, drawer box and hardware.

  • Doors and drawer fronts set can be ordered separately if needed (not listed directly online and please email us for quote). Door and drawer fronts are ordered in sets. For example, 1 order of B24 doors/drawer fronts includes 1 top drawer front and 2 doors for the B24 cabinet.
