Specifications

Material Options

Face frames are available in 3/4” and 7/8” thickness. Face Frames are available in most wood species offered by Decore-ative Specialties except Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF). There are material limitations for Inset Molding Frame (FE-2) which are listed on page 2. Check for availability when ordering.

Color & Grain

The material grade requested is for the face of the face frame. The back will be a lower grade than the face.

Finishing

Face frames are offered with Water-based Finishes for your convenience. The back side of face frames will not be finished. If you required finished backs please indicate that on your quote and order. Please specify the desired Finish Grade material when placing your order.

Construction Method

A high quality haunch method of construction is used for our face frames to provide added durability. The Square Edge (FE-1) Frames can be ordered with butt joint or haunch construction (at no additional cost.)

Assembly Options

Face frames are drilled and assembled with pocket screws and glue. Face frames can also be ordered ready-to-assemble (RTA) so all you have to do is assemble, sand, and finish.
