Yes, my cabinets were "ready to assemble" from a big box store. Do you ship your fixtures already assembled? That's how mine went, and the packaging left something to be desired. In any case, as you said, it would be hard for me to get commercial grade stuff in the small quantities I use, even if I knew where to get it.

One year of experience repeated 10 times is not 10 years of experience.

Recently I've read bits and pieces about cabinet construction and more than once there has been reference made to "furniture grade" particle board. By chance I was in Lowes this past week and got to talking to a rep from a company that made counter tops. Granite, Quartz and Laminate counter tops. I asked him about the furniture grade particle board and he said that's what they use on their laminate tops. He said there is such a thing and it's far and away superior to common particle board. Has anyone ever heard of this stuff ?

Thomas - I help out a cabinetmaker from time to time who builds primarily kitchen cabinets, vanities, etc. out of melamine. He orders from a company called McFaddens and the melamine comes in various grades. I think the better/best grade is what they label as 400. It comes in white as well as other finishes. I'm not sure if there is a minimum order but he usually orders at least $1000 as I think that qualifies for free delivery (don't quote me on that). Here's a link.

Vince, I just googled them and found they're just up the road from me. Head Office Oakville. 4.4 km. from me. Just east of the 403 at the QEW. off the north service road. All kinds of material on their website. I'll call them and find out policy, availability, etc. They've got places all over. Thanks for the heads up.

I'm not familiar with the term "furniture grade" but around here (USA) the better stuff is referred to as "industrial" board and has a designated Weight per cubic foot (damn Imperial measures.) Depending on what mill made it, it can vary considerably in characteristics.
