Last week was a big week for the cabinotch® Innovative Solutions team since we machined and assembled Cabinet #1 from the new cabinotch® Full Access Library. You just have to love it when a plan comes together.

Then we were able to assemble this cabinet using Lamello Tenso connectors, which worked flawlessly (I apologize for the video quality in advance).


Cabinet #1 will need to be enshrined into a glass enclosure one day, so we are being very careful with it. As you can clearly tell, Cadman Campbell and Bobbo Buckley are pretty happy about this cabinet. 

Now let’s fast forward to this week, and Cabinet #2. In reality, this is more like Cabinet #2C (we had a couple misfires with our connectors for cabinet #2A and 2B, but we nailed it with #2C, so we are going to need another glass shrine for this awesome little piece of engineering innovation).

Cabinet #1 was a simple wall cabinet, but even our simple cabinets are innovative in that they will utilize the Camar suspension system for installing upper cabinetry. What this means is we will install steel rail on the wall, then these cabinets will be lifted up and hooked onto the steel rail, and we use the internal suspension blocks to plumb and level the cabinets perfectly.

Cabinet #2 is a fairly simple 3 drawer base cabinet (although you can’t really tell that by the carcass alone). All base and tall cabinets will utilize the Camar leg leveling system, allowing the installer to perfectly level and plum the cabinets, regardless of the floor conditions.








So here is a little better video of Cadman assembling Cabinet #2.

So the success of these two beta cabinets officially begins our Soft Launch of the Cabinet Full Access product line, producing a couple jobs for each market group, and then, in a few weeks, we should be back here telling you all about our national launch of the cabinotch® Full Access product line. Stay Tuned…

    On upper cabinets, can you edge band the top and bottom edges of the cabinet sides?

    On some projects the top of the cabinets can be seen from above. Say there is an open floor plan with a stairway and balcony. And the bottom of uppers can be seen if sitting at a table. I have also had shiny countertops reflect the under part of the cabinet. It would be a plus if that is a option.

      First of all, thank you for taking time to post your concern here. Currently that is not what we do, but I will pass your concerns on to the folks that determine things like this. Anyone else have an opinion on what edges should and should not be banded? You can read about our current processes and procedures here.

    Is the edge band stain ready? And is it possible to have another species besides maple?

    • Bobbo Buckley on April 11, 2017 at 10:59 pm

      Joseph, the edgeband is ready for stain in that it is raw, but I would suggest you sand it first. The ideal solution is to find a PVC match to your finish, and let us edgeband with that, which will save you all the time it requires to finish the front edge of all your parts.

      We offer 7 species of veneer edgeband. Alder, Cherry, Hickory, Maple, Oak (red), Oak (white) and Walnut.
