Mitered joints show off the beauty of natural cherry to its greatest advantage.

The most graceful of construction features, a miter joint completely conceals the end grain of the door frame pieces, emphasizing the natural beauty of solid hardwoods. Our mitered cabinet door style, the Carlton, gracefully complements traditional and transitional architectural styles.

The Carlton, here shown in the Cherry Russet finish, is perfect in this elegant traditional space.

A testament to fine craftsmanship and the classic art of cabinetmaking, a perfectly mitered joint requires precise cutting to divide the 90° angle between the two joined frame sections.

Here the Carlton is finished in a bisque glaze on linen paint, a treatment that emphasizes the fine detailing in the door frame and drawer front edges.

When the joint is reinforced with dowels and spline before gluing, the construction will hold strong and true over a lifetime of use. See the CliqStudios lifetime warranty.

Precisely cut, dowled and glued, this mitered joint will hold fast and true for a lifetime - we guarantee it!
