What we include when you order the base cabinet door option

So what do you get when you order a Maple shaker-style door that costs $24.46 per square foot?

The cabinet doors you receive are sanded and ready for finishing. We recommend you spend 1-2 minutes per door doing a quick inspection and touch-up sanding to ensure any scuff marks that occurred during packaging, shipping, and unpackaging are taken care of.

The cabinet doors have 2.25” stiles and rails. We use our standard grade material, which we recommend you finish with a medium to dark stain. However, you can apply a clear lacquer finish to standard Maple shaker-style doors as long as your customer understands that the plywood panels may be a different colour when compared to the stiles and rails, which are solid wood.

You can request that our team break the square edges for no additional cost. Broken square edges are not as drastic as they sound – our team simply takes a piece of sandpaper and runs it along the sharp edges to make them less sharp. If you don’t request broken square edges, the outside edges are very sharp, and your finish may chip or wear off over time.

What we exclude when you order the base cabinet door option

When you order a basic Maple shaker-style cabinet door for $24.46 per square foot, your cabinet doors are not finished, drilled for hinges, or custom in any way. 

Cutting Edge’s Maple shaker-style cabinet door

A shaker-style cabinet door is a very simple door style. The traditional shaker-style cabinet door looks like this:

The stiles and rails (the outer frame) are 2.25” wide and have a square inside and outside profile. The centre panel is ¼” thick plywood.

Shaker-style doors are cost-effective because only the stiles and rails are solid wood. The centre panel is plywood, which has a very thin wood skin (or veneer) applied to an MDF core. Plywood panels are less expensive than solid wood panels for two main reasons: 

  1. They aren’t solid wood.
  2. Our team spends less time working with them because they come ready to cut to the size we need.

Shaker-style Maple doors are the most common choice within the generic shaker-style door range. Maple is a hardwood, making it very durable. In addition, Maple is readily available, which makes it more affordable than other wood species. 

Factors that increase the cost of a Maple shaker-style cabinet door

The price will increase if you want to customize your Maple shaker-style door. Below is a list of customizations that increase the price:

Non-standard stile and rail widths

Changing the stile and rail widths from 2.25” will increase the square foot price from $24.46 to $25.86. 2.25” is our standard stile and rail width, so any other width means we have to adjust the machinery we use to make the stiles and rails.


If you want our team to finish your cabinet doors, the price will increase to at least $39.03 per square foot. Different finish types cost more; $39.03 per square foot allows for a clear lacquer finish.

Hinge drilling

If you want your doors pre-drilled for Blum hinges, we add approximately $1 per hinge hole. Most doors use two hinges; therefore, most doors will cost an extra $2.

Custom details

Adding custom details to your order (like decorative panels or mullion frames) will increase the cost.
