What are some of the materials used for kitchen cabinets

Oak and Hickory woods are very strong and so they can handle lots of movement. Maple is hard and stiff to keep straight for a long time while Cherry has lightweight advantages, in combination with good strength and a beautiful wood grain. Alder is a softer hardwood, but is harder than pine so it is commonly used as a cabinet door frame, but it can be used as the panel. Ridged Thermofoil (RTF) cabinet doors are NOT really wood, but look like it and have a higher price tag to reflect their dent and stain resistance, as well as not being able to peel or bubble.
