KD construction using sheet materials

Most inexpensive mass-produced carcass furniture is now made from pre-finished plastic coated chipboard, either white, in colour or in simulated wood veneer. In either case, the edges are simply veneered from rolls of the same finishing material and the whole carcass is packed flat into boxes and assembled later, either in the shop or the home, with simple but ingenious KD fittings. Few people realize that of the acres of teak and mahogany furniture that fill our cheaper retail stores, much of it is no more than a paper-thick film of photographed wood protected by a clear plastic coating.

So inexpensive is this pre-finished material and the KD method of construction, that it has largely replaced the bulky and time-consuming frame and thin panel construction of a decade or so ago for most kitchen and storage furniture in the lower price ranges. Slightly higher in price, but still of the same construction, is KD carcass furniture produced from pre-wood-veneered sheets of chipboard or, occasionally, MDF. These are spray-finished after edge-veneering or, better quality still, after solid edges have been applied.
