How your kitchen cabinets are constructed has a big impact on how sturdy they are.

They have what may seem like funny names (see below).
This is a level of detail you do not really have to know when making your selection, but on the other hand, when you receive conflicting information from different people, it’s always nice to have unbiased information to help you make your decision.
We do not sell cabinets, and we do not have a strong vested interest in where you get them (although we do know a great shop in San Jose), and the information provided below is strictly factual without embellishment.
I hope this information is useful to you. Other details about cabinet construction is available in other articles.
