Strong, renewable, beautiful and machinable was the search criteria. We chose Maple as our solid wood offering. Maple is a premium product with a higher price so we also sought equally performing, but lower cost alternatives.
To complete our product line, we have continued to ever improve and offer only the best. After four years in business we have made another exciting step forward. Our newest material (replacing the Durable Coated Line) is an even better product, currently available in a Cream finish, we now have added an HDPE shelf. It has the strength of maple, provides easy cleanup and looks great too. All the materials we chose are meant to last the life of your cabinets. Below are the details:
Taking advantage of Vertical Spice's Minnesota location, home to hardwood forests, we headed north to the lake country and found a wonderful selection of maple products at Aitkin Hardwoods. Besides the wood being beautiful and strong, maple trees are also definitely renewable. Design and production details were worked out and we now receive our boards directly from the mill, supplied with solid pieces for the drawers and edge glued maple pieces to prevent warping for the bases. We are excited about the great look and function of the finished maple drawers. Maple is definitely a beautiful premium product.
Cream (PolyTuf HDPE)
We are really, really, really excited about this material. Very tough, light in weight and versatile. This is the same material used in those new Adirondack chairs and other outdoor furniture that will last forever. Manufactured from recycled milk cartons and other sources, our vendor has created the "Cream" color just for us to match most cabinet interiors. You will be showing off your new spice organization and this product will be the centerpiece of your versatile kitchen spice assistant.
