A tall cabinet intended for clothing storage including hanging of clothes is called a wardrobe or an armoire , or (in some countries) a closet if built-in. This eventually resulted in a growth in the total number of traditional cabinet makers. Generally, people did not need it and for the most part could not afford it. Victorian era and to the ‘soulless’ machine-made production which was starting to become widespread. The more serious and skilled amateurs in this field now turn out pieces of furniture which rival the work of professional cabinet makers. Corners and bevels are often decorated with gold leaf or given some other kind of gilding. For example, a table top may have what is considered a “live edge” that allows you to see the original contours of the tree that it came from. Rustic furniture is often made from pine, cedar, fir and spruce.

For early mission cabinetmakers, the material of choice was white oak, which they often darkened through a process known as “fuming”. Although the cabinet maker may also be required to produce items that would not be recognized as cabinets, the same skills and techniques apply. A built-in cabinet is usually custom made for a particular situation and it is fixed into position, on a floor, against a wall, or framed in an opening. Cabinet doors may be hinged or sliding and may have mirrors on the inner or outer surface. In contrast, frameless cabinet have no such supporting front face frame, the cabinet doors attach directly to the sides of the cabinet box. Using the adjustable feet, the side blanks are cut to 30 inches, thus yielding six cabinet side per sheet. They can also be attached by means of a hole drilled through the cabinet bottom at specific locations. The height of the cabinet can be adjusted from inside the cabinet, simply by inserting a screwdriver into the slot and turning to raise or lower the cabinet. Using these feet, the cabinets need not be shimmed or scribed to the floor for leveling. This toe kick board can be made to fit each base cabinet, or made to fit a run of cabinets. Bracket feet are separate feet, usually attached in each corner and occasionally for larger pieces in the middle of the cabinet. Compartments may be open, as in open shelving; they may be enclosed by one or more doors; or they may contain one or more drawers. Modern cabinets employ many more complicated means (relative to a simple shelf) of making browsing lower cabinets more efficient and comfortable.

These are usually used in corner cabinets, which are larger and deeper and have a greater “dead space” at the back than other cabinets. These pull out and turn, making the attached shelving unit slide into the open area of the cabinet door, thus making the shelves accessible to the user. Other insert hardware includes such items as mixer shelves that pull out of a base cabinet and spring into a locked position at counter height. In many cases, the top is merely to enclose the compartments within and serves no other purpose—as in a wall hung cupboard for example. Some cabinets stand alone while others are built in to a wall or are attached to it like a medicine cabinet. Cabinets usually have one or more doors on the front, which are mounted with door hardware, and occasionally a lock. A cabinet intended to be used in a bedroom and with several drawers typically placed one above another in one or more columns intended for clothing and small articles is called a chest of drawers. In parallel to this evolution there came a growing demand by the rising middle class in most industrialised countries for finely made furniture. Together, their work now represents but a small percentage of furniture production in any industrial country, but their numbers are vastly greater than those of their counterparts in the 18th century and before.

It also often uses whole logs or branches including the bark of the tree. Hardware is often visible on the outside of the pieces and made of black iron. For example, modern kitchens are examples of built-in cabinetry. First off, in making base cabinets for kitchens, the cabinet sides would be cut to 34½ inches, yielding four cabinet side blanks per 4 foot by 8 foot sheet. These feet can be secured to the bottom of the cabinet by having the leg base screwed onto the cabinet bottom. The legs are then attached to the cabinet bottom by a slotted, hollow machine screw. The holes in the cabinet are capped by plastic inserts, making the appearance more acceptable for residential cabinets. The toe kick board is attached to the cabinet by means of a clip, which is either screwed onto the back side of the kick board, or a barbed plastic clip is inserted into a saw kerf, also made on the back side of the kick board. Kitchen cabinets, or any cabinet generally at which a person may stand, usually have a fully enclosed base in which the front edge has been set back 75 mm or so to provide room for toes, known as the kick space. Some cabinets contain secret compartments, access to which is generally not obvious. One example is the lazy susan, a shelf which rotates around a central axis, allowing items stored at the back of the cabinet to be brought to the front by rotating the shelf. This hardware aids in lifting these somewhat heavy mixers and assists with positioning the unit for use. In other cabinets, the top also serves as a work surface—a kitchen countertop for example.
