Q: Can my furniture maker use Furniture Design Link’s shop drawings to build the piece?
A: Yes, our staff has over 25 years experience working with cabinet makers, we are familiar with all of the necessary information that they need to build the piece. We include the necessary information in every one of our shop drawings. Since our shop drawings are used by professionals we leave some of the cabinetmaking details to them. An example of this would be the gap (space) between the doors and drawers, some cabinet- makers like to use a 1/16” gap while other like to use an 1/8” gap. This structural detail does not affect the furniture design. The aim of our shop drawing is to capture the furniture design intent. To provide shop drawings that when followed will produce a finished piece that will look like our furniture design rendering.
