5/8 Overlay (Semi-Euro)
Framed cabinets have faceframes to which doors are attached. Doors and drawers overlay the faceframe and leave a ¼” reveal.
Cabinet doors and drawer fronts are recessed (inset) and flush with the cabinet faceframe. A small gap will appear between the edge of the face frame and the edge of the door.
Flush Inset w/Bone Mould
Beaded Inset is the same as Inset, except that a small bead is routed into the cabinet’s faceframe, outlining the perimeter of the door.
European (Frameless Full Overlay)
There is no face frame; doors and fronts fully overlay the cabinet with a minimal 3/16” reveal between the doors and fronts.
