First time posting here. Hope you can help.
I just purchased the Kreg Master system for a project I am starting. It is a breakfast bar for the kitchen. It will basically be three base cabinets. But,,, I am putting a trash bin type drawer on one end ( to hold the dog food ) and a trash compactor on the other end. The ends will be 90 degress to the middle cabinet, which will be a bank of drawers. To make it easier to get out of my cellar "workshop" I am going to make three individual cabinets instead of one monster.
Looking thru the Kreg Cabinet Making Booklet that came with my jig it says to dado the back in....
My question is What is the reasoning behind that? Is there a specific reason to do that? If I am already pocket screwing the sides.. what difference does it make to pocket screw the back?
Good question, Michael. Dadoing the back is just one option (the option the book writer obviously chose) and you can definitely pocket hole the back if you choose to, just be sure to select plywood at least 1/2" thick.
Here is one such example that was posted in the KJOC:
