Doors and Drawers
Virtually every cabinet you build uses rabbet joinery somewhere: for lock-rabbet drawers, on inset doors, as a recess to house the back of a bookcase. A rabbeting router bit helps you make them all.
Slides come in many different types, and determining which to buy can be confusing. Here’s how to pick the best one for the job.
You can make doors using just your tablesaw and a general-purpose blade to cut the joints.
Clean, modern drawers with precision reveals are just a few steps away.
I was asked to construct five built-in dressers and a set of kitchen cabinets: I had a lot of drawers to make, all of different depths. The one-step method I came up with works great.
When routing rails and stiles on the router table, it takes time to reset the fence flush with the guide bearing and parallel to the miter slot every time I swap bits. This jig, however, allows me to instantly repeat the setup.
