Hoosier cabinet materials. Hoosier cabinets are made of wood. Oak was the most prevalent wood species used, but a scarcity in the supply later forced manufacturers to use any type of wood they could. “That is why you start to see painted cabinets in the later years,” Fyffe says. “It was to hide the different woods that were used. It was not uncommon to see a cabinet that would have three or four different wood species.” Worktops were made of wood, zinc and porcelain. Porcelain, shown here, is the most common worktop material and what people usually associate with Hoosier cabinets. Julie Ranee Photography
