Kreg Owners' Community

I am building some shop cabinets as practice and I can't figure out how to attach the face frames using the Kreg system. Building the carcass and drawers is really easy. Any advice on how to attach theface frames would be greatly appreciated.

You need to drill pocketholes inside the front edge of the cabinet, facing the front of the cabinet. Then secure your faceframe onto the front of the cabinet. If you have the Kreg 90-degree clamp, this would be a perfect use for it. Then use the correct length of screws from within the cabinet, in the holes you just drilled. Make sure the face frame is securely in place before doing this. The pockethole screws will pull the faceframe tightly against the cabinet edge as you screw them in. That should do it.
If your cabinets are all put together you may have to use an angle drill attachment depending on the size of your drill and depth of the cabinet. a kreg drill bit attached to a regular drill is far to long for wall cabinets. When you do more cabinets make sure you pre-drill before assembly. Also make sure that the face frame is securely clamped when you attach because it may move.
