For my face frames the rails and stiles were attached with wood glue and a really cool tool, check out The Kreg Pocket Hole Jig This tool cost approximately $140 and makes perfect pocket holes. My point is really if I were making 1-2 dozen of these joints in a year, as a hobbyist I wouldn’t be investing in a specialized $4-500 tool if I had a reasonable alternative. When ordering, please factor the size of the bead into your overall Face Frame dimensions.

When ordering curved inset face frames you will need all measurements for one of the following diagrams. Face frame joints are haunched with beading meeting in the corners at a perfect 45º angle. The last company I worked for used a butt joint where the frames were nailed together from the back with corrugated fasteners and toenailed with a brad nail on the edges. Individual compartments within the cabinet are divided by mid-stiles and mid-rails.

Please contact our Customer Support Team for more information about Precision Sized to Fit Doors and Drawer Fronts for Assembled or RTA Face Frames. I only took a few pictures, because the main point of this article was to illustrate the fabrication and installation of the face frame. An applied bead is also the way to go if a drawer front rather than a face frame needs a bead.

Mike – on my kitchen build I used a building board with blocks screwed to the surface to form a jig to make the face frames and then used the same markings on the board to make the doors, thus ensuring that the doors and frames were identical. I think it would be fine for kitchen cabinets as long as you don’t have little ones that might go to beating on them. If you have fair hair, softer pastel shades or transparent or metal frames will ensure that your glasses don’t overwhelm your face.

A face frame in cabinet making is the frame fixed to the front of a cabinet carcass which obscures the edges of the carcass and provides the fixing point for doors and other external hardware. When cutting face frame components I slightly overcut each piece in all dimensions, then edge joint them to remove any bows. If staining your piece you want to match your face frame wood as closely as possible to your carcass lumber.

To maintain this natural balance, frames that are as wide as or slightly wider than the broadest part of the face are the best choice. The widths of the face frame parts would typically provide for an overhang of the plywood cabinet box front edges. Frameless cabinetry is greener because it reduces the amount of trees harvested for cabinet construction. It’s really not THAT hard to produce quality beaded face frames with a few more steps.

Methods which deal with the correct use of drilling equipment and also appropriate drilling pattern for each and every specific cabinet line.

I think Norm Abrahm used pocket screws on the face frame, and attached it to the carcase with biscuits. The Homebuilders Show was smaller than the one last year and Hafele was the only kitchen hardware supplier there.

If I’m painting my face frames I don’t mind using filler to hide nail holes and it’s quick and easy to use only glue and nails to attach a face frame. Since you’re studying at a technical college, you will be learning kitchen cabinet construction, which doesn’t automatically translate in to furniture construction. I tend to screw on my face frame and you can use pre-finished interior wood in your box. The CHB-270CNC Cut-off Saw -Notcher is designed to cut frame material to exact length and make cuts (notches) along the edge of the beaded face frame material. The dado in the face frame hides any slight imperfections on the plywood edge and also allows for a generous glue up with no squeeze out.
