Here at Sky River Industries we manufacture a semi-custom modular hybrid cabinet meant to mimic European cabinetry and install like a face frame cabinet. Our box sides references from the inside out allowing box sides to be flush with the frame, this gives us the ability to use European style hardware. Our cabinet frame styles are 7/8″ with door overlaying 3/4″ leaving a tight 1/8″ reveal.
CABINET BOX CONSTRUCTION
We offer two options for box construction, 5/8″ birch plywood or 5/8″ white melamine. Boxes are dadoed, glued and nailed. Cabinets with no doors are built with stain grade material and stained to match. Cabinets with glass doors are built with material matching selected box construction, material can be upgraded to stain grade material and stained to match upon request.
Sink cabinets are shipped open backed with nailer strip front and back.
Top of base cabinet is open with nailer front and back. Our cabinets are built ready to accept standard slab counter tops without additional support.
DRAWER BOX CONSTRUCTION
Drawer boxes are always made from a 5/8″ hardwood material. Drawer boxes are built with dove tail joints and 1/2″ birch plywood bottoms to increase durability. This drawer box construction exists for all cabinetry regardless of cabinet box material selection.
Our shelving is built with a 3/4″ thick material to match selected box construction material and is adjustable thorough out the majority of the cabinet. Shelving comes with clear locking shelf clips.
Cabinets with finished interiors have non locking metal supports for a finished look. Shelving for finished interiors is 3/4″ plywood, edge banded on one side.
We use Blum hardware in our cabinetry due to their high quality products paired with their lifetime warranty. Our typical hinge is a European style clip on hinge with 3 way adjustment; top to bottom, left to right, front to back. Hinges are easily adjusted with a basic phillips screwdriver. A soft close cylinder clips to the hinge for a soft close feature. These are shipped loose in our install kit for application after cabinet installation and door adjustment.
Drawer guides are Blum Blumotion, which means full extension with soft close built in. While we offer custom size cabinets, drawer guides are restricted to 3″ increments starting at 9″ going to 30″. Please note, cabinet must be 1 1/2″ deeper than the guide. Standard Blumotion guides are rated for 100lbs. static load capacity. Guides can be upgraded to heavy duty with a 150lbs. static load capacity upon request and for an additional charge. Drawer guides have 3 way adjustment; top to bottom, left to right and tilt.
Here at Skyriver we utilize commercial grade finishing products provided by Sherwin Williams. We offer variety of different finishes; spray stain, wipe stain and paint. We have a fully enclosed spray booth with filtered air where our experienced finishers put the final touches on our cabinetry.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Joint lines on painted cabinetry
Wood is in a constant state of expansion and contraction. This normal movement may cause some hairline cracks at the joints in the finish surface on cabinet doors and face frames. This is a natural occurrence and does not weaken or diminish the strength of the joints.
Certain wood, such as cherry, will continue to change over time. This brings warmth to lightly-stained cherry and increases depth below darker stains.
