• Mortise and tenon is a traditional woodworking joint that involves two parts: the mortise (a rectangular hole) and the tenon (a projecting piece that fits into the mortise). In the context of kitchen cabinets, this assembly technique involves creating mortises in one piece of wood, typically the cabinet frame, and tenons on the corresponding piece, such as the cabinet side or rail. The tenon is then inserted into the mortise and secured with glue, screws, or dowels.


    • Strength and durability: The mortise and tenon joint provides excellent strength and structural integrity, making it a reliable choice for cabinets that need to bear weight.

    • Aesthetics: This type of joint is often considered more visually appealing as it creates a seamless and flush connection between the cabinet components.

    • Longevity: Mortise and tenon joints are known for their longevity and ability to withstand frequent use and movement.


    • Complexity: The mortise and tenon joint requires more advanced woodworking skills and precision in its creation, which may increase production time and cost.

    • Longer manufacturing process: It takes longer to create mortises and tenons compared to other assembly methods, which can affect the overall manufacturing process.
