One of my biggest hang-ups has always been the installation of cabinet doors. Keeping an awkward door aligned and in place with one hand while drilling with the other drove me half nuts.My solution: Cut an extra stile when making the door parts. I use the extra stile to align the hinges on the cabinet frame and drill pilot holes as shown. Further, if the hinge locations are symmetrical, I can flip it around and use it for both left and right door installations.Even overlay doors can be aligned this way before drilling because the stile can be closed against the frame for measuring. And there is usually still room to look past it and get a drill around it.—Mike Harman, Great Mills, Md.
