Cabinet Makers

Modern cabinet makers demand the highest performance and best quality from their CNC machinery.

CNC Tools for Quality Results & Efficient Production

Panel Tools works with world-class suppliers to offer a range of CNC tooling to the cabinet making industry. Offering fantastic cost and time savings, CNC manufacturing has found a ready home with cabinet makers of all sizes. With the help of modern software and precise machinery, CNC processes have the potential to improve production efficiency and decrease waste in cabinet making workshops that specialise in processing flat panel stock.

Our 3 axis CNC tooling is ideal for both high and low volume workshops. We can tailor solutions that unlock the full potential of your equipment and help meet your quality and volume targets. Featuring innovative designs, coatings and materials, we provide tooling options suitable for use with both manufactured and solid timber boards. Whether you are working with MDF, chipboard or solid timber, our tooling can be matched to your need for higher feed rates, improved product finishes and custom profiling and shaping.

Create Stunning Cabinetry With Our Custom CNC Tools

The Application

  • Nesting

  • Door Profiling

  • Drilling

  • Surfacing

  • Cabinets


Nesting CNC machines have been widely adopted in cabinetry due to their efficiency and accuracy in batch-size-one applications. A key focus for modern manufacturers is achieving the maximum uptime and speed on these machines as they can be the limiting factor on the output of the operation. Advanced machinery have high travel speeds but the interface between the machine and the end product is the tool.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you make cabinets with a CNC machine?

Thanks to their flat component parts, cabinets are ideally suited to 3 axis CNC manufacturing.

Can you cut MDF with a CNC machine?

With the right tooling, most 3 axis CNC machines can be used to cut MDF panels. To prevent tearout and burning and create higher quality cuts, it is important to use sharp tooling that is specifically designed for cutting MDF.

What CNC tools do cabinet makers use?

Typically made from flat components, cabinet makers use a mix of compression cutters, profiling tools and router bits to create cabinets using CNC machines.

How does CNC machining benefit cabinet makers?

Cabinets are built to high tolerances and exacting standards. The more accurately the pieces of a cabinet have been cut, the better the assembled result will be. CNC machines can cut workpieces to high tolerances with minimal labour, delivering a better product in less time.

How fast do CNC machines cut?

High volume cabinet manufacturers often prefer CNC technology for its operational speed. With the right tooling, CNC machines can process timber stock at a rate of 40 metres per minute or even more.
