We were recently asked a question regarding tongue and groove end panels & radius feature ends. The best way to answer it was with the image below as you can see the answer instantly.
(Q) “I am planning to put a tongue and groove end panel at the end of a run of base units. I have seen your feature radius end panel and wondered whether they would be suitable to use to help finish the tongue and groove end panels?”
(A) Yes, see the image below
When you combine a Radius Feature End with a Tongue and Groove End Panel at the end of a run of cabinets, you create a fantastic feature in your kitchen.
These components are available in many finishes to match our door ranges and end panels are also available without the tongue and groove detail.
Radius Feature Ends and End Panels are also available for use with wall units and tall units.
Fitting the radius feature end
- Position the radius feature end post on the unit, where you require it and screw it to the unit from the inside.
- There is a small bit that sticks out in the middle of the radius feature end (see the image above). You put the end panel into the gap that is created, so that the end of the curve of the radius and the start of the end panel, line up perfectly.
- The hollow behind the radius part would need padding out with some timber, attached to the unit, so that the end panel has something to secure itself to, at the back of the unit.

HI, Do you do the radius end that’s tall enough for the tall slim cabinets, ie >2100mm tall. If not, what would you recommend?
Hi, we do offer tall radius ends in some of the ranges, an example of this is ICLALTFEP2120 in Clayton Alabaster. If they are looking at a range we don’t offer this in they you would need to use 2 x 1210mm ones.
I have purchased some radius end panels but they do not have the grove that you talk about and that are shown in your diagram. There a solid piece of wood with a radius only, not other cuts. How should i best fit the grooved end panel to the radius ends without this groove??
Hi, we usually advise to use an offcut from another panel in the kitchen and stick this on to the radius end, then you can butt the panel up to it.
Really like the thick end posts but would much prefer a square corner as opposed to a radius. Is this available? We’re interested in the Helmsley and wondered if ut’s possible to get these? Thanks
Hi, i’m afraid we only have the posts available that are shown on our website.
Hi, I’m having trouble finding the radius end on the site. Can you confirm these can be obtained for the Linwood in Dove grey?
Hi, you can find radius feature ends here.
I don’t understand how a 19mm panel and a 50mm radius are supposed to connect without leaving a 31mm void. Please can you explain how you finish off the end using a radius and end panel.
Hi Frank, at the back of the radius feature end, there is a small bit that sticks out on the middle (see the image above). You butt the end panel up into the right angle that is created, so that the end of the curve of the radius and the start of the end panel, line up perfectly. The hollow behind the radius part would need padding out with some timber, attached to the unit, so that end panel has something to secure itself to.
Thanks for the reply.
Sorry I should have stated that I’m looking at a standard radius and flat end panel, not T&G.
So, for the Welton range, is this the same as the picture above? Or is the Welton radius/panel different?
Hi Frank, they should all be the same but the Welton feature end post, does not seem to show the part that juts out at the back. If there is no piece at the back then the 50mm wide radius feature end post is fitted to the front of the carcase, in line with the front edge of the doors. You will then need to fit a 30/31mm batten behind the post, attached it to the carcase and then fit the 19mm end panel to this, butted up to the radius feature end post.
I am looking for base unit radius ends to finish off end panels, around 60 – 70mm radius in light oak.
Do you have such items, and do you have colour swatches to check against to match an existing kitchen ?
We do sell radius feature ends in Broad oak light but they only have a radius of 50mm.
I’m afraid we do not have any colour swatches to compare colours of these feature ends with your existing kitchen. Ordering a door sample would be the only way of seeing if the match was good enough.
