Contractor says solid wood cabinet fronts don't exist??

last month


I'm working with a contractor on a kitchen remodel. He agreed in our contract to fabricate solid wood cabinets but when he brought in a sample of the wood fronts, I noticed they were MDF with a thin hardwood veneer (white oak). When I pointed this out (because we want to have the flexibility to refinish the cabinets down the line if we want to change the stain) he said that no one makes solid wood cabinet fronts anymore... Is this possibly true??

This is the type of door we're going for (flat slab)... Has anyone has fronts for this style of cabinet made from solid wood recently?
