The Retail Display Cabinet Project

Recently, a great client of ours placed an order for some retail display cabinets.

The client gave us the exact dimensions and we were able to model and program everything we needed for the project ahead of time.

Once the materials landed here at Cache River Mill, we got right to work!

Since the CNC program was already written, we were able to un-bundle the material and get it set immediately on our 5-Axis CNC machine.

The 5-Axis CNC machine was able to route all of our dados for the joinery, drill all of the holes for the shelves and cut all of the panels from the raw material.

The machined materials were then removed from the CNC machine, properly stacked and then prepared for assembly.

The CNC machine has a programmable operation that can drill six shelf mounting holes at once. This saves us an enormous amount of time and is extremely precise, ensuring that everything is a perfect fit.

As the machined material came off of the CNC machine, our team started assembly.

All materials were properly glued before being secured into place.

And everything aligned perfectly as it went together piece by piece.

While the cabinets were being assembled, the face frames were starting to take shape on the other side of the Cache River Mill shop.

The face frame boards were run through the planer, giving each piece of lumber a constant thickness and a smooth surface.

Once the lumber was properly shaped and smoothed, it was then cut to size. Pocket-hole joints proved to be the perfect combination of speed and strength for this job.

A face frame was then assembled and installed onto the front of each retail cabinet.

A footer and crown molding was then installed to the face frame while all fastener holes were filled and smoothed.

The retail cabinets were then placed into the paint booth in groups of eight units at a time and inspected before they were painted.

The retail cabinets were then painted to the client's requested color code.
