"I have built 100's of cabinets, from small uppers to 4' x 7' pantries, without glue. The one place that I do glue is building drawer boxes. For the European hidden door hinges, be sure to invest the <$30 in the new Kreg jig!! It…"

"Thank you . I was worried about the glue not adhering the cut endgrain with the prefinished maple plywood on the butt joint. The kreg pocket screws appear to be pretty strong, I will definitely take photos and post them. I have to with all of your…"

"Michael. I use titebond original exclusively through out the construction.  It is a good glue that will set with a good bond and has a reasonable open time.   When doing butt joints I suggest putting a good heavy coat on the open…"

"Jay, I ran onto a small problem I cannot seem to solve. I am using finished maple plywood for my kitchen cabinets. What type of glue do you use for the butt joints ? "

"Michael,  The less painting that you can do before you start any assembly would give you a cleaner and nicer finish.  Just too many chances of dinging the finish.  In your project if the other cabinet parts are already finished…"

"Thank you Jay but I should have been more specific, the inside of the cabinet will be finished maple and not painted. I thought about applying the face frame and just taping and covering what I do not want painted, but then it would probably be…"

"It would depend on how you want to finish the cabinet boxes,  I normally spray all of my cabinets as well.   If you are going to have the entire cabinet the same color I would spray the total assembled cabinet.  That way it…"

"Jay, Thank you for your comments. As usual I pick the most difficult way of making something. I was planning on 24 inch lower cabinets, 12 inch upper cabinets. The Shaker style doors and drawers would be inset. I thought the European hinges would…"

Framed inset drawer/door kitchen cabinets

I would like to use European hinges and under mount drawer slides. The partition and ends would be doubled, i realize that this would be a waste of wood, space and quite close to frameless cabinets. I have heard some calling this a hybrid kitchen cabinet. Any thoughts?See More

I just picked up my new Kreg Mobile Project Center Item #KWS1000.

Wow!  I set it up in my basement and it is great addition to my Kreg items.  I was viewing a video where a review on this fine product was being made, which prompts…
