When we have your dimensions and design specification we produce a cutting list of all the parts using optimisation cut list software. This list goes automatically to the beam saw accurate to 0.1mm. Using the latest CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machinery, all the holes are drilled to accept the assembly fittings, hinges, shelf holes and alike. If preparation tape is being used then it is applied using our edge bander machine. Everything is checked, the hardware counted and then carefully packaged ready for delivery.
All of our cabinets are made at our workshop in Sussex using the most up-to-date CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machinery to ensure total accuracy.
We require payment in full but only when you are 100% happy with your cabinet specification and are ready to proceed. We accept all major cards, cheques and bank transfers.

At the initial measuring stage there can be some elements that need consideration. Such as curtain poles extending into the alcove area, radiators, position of plug and aerial sockets, fire place hearths, fire gas pipes and mantle pieces. None of these are a problem so long as we are aware of them we can account for them. Please see our measuring tips.
