Example text

Before gluing the doors, you should dry-fit the doors without glue. You also should sand the panel before glue-up. Don’t sand the stile and rail edges after assembly – do it before. Likewise, sand the inside stile and rail edges everywhere except in the joint location. This is very important to remember because sanding inside the joint can ruin the fit. If you want to stain or color your project, you should do so before assembly. Not only is it easier, but you can stain up to the edges of the panel.

Take the fall-off strip and rip it so it’s 1⁄ 2" wide. Crosscut 1" off each end of that falloff piece and reglue each end to the back edge of the top piece, making sure the cove detail matches. Voilà! You have an instant stopped notch in your top. Attaching the top and bottom pieces to the carcase is easy if your case is square and your joints are flush. Before you attach the top and bottom, check their fit against the carcase itself. You want a tight joint at the front and the sides. If you don’t get a seamless fit with only hand pressure, you’ll need to tweak the carcase until you do.

No problem. You simply adjust the size of your doors and change the position of your shelves and dividers to suit. If you build the carcase fi rst, a mistake on the face frame usually means that the face frame is headed for the scrap pile. The Frameless Variant Here I’m thinning down the rails a bit more than the stiles with a jointer plane that is set up like a smoothing plane. Then I’ll assemble this frame and smooth plane the long stiles to finished thickness. If your cabinet is a frameless one, you should begin with building the doors.
