Cabinetry Basics Part 1 [

  • Am Vor 8 Monate

    Peter MillardPeter Millard

    I get a lot of questions about cabinet and carcass construction and in this series I aim to answer them all, starting here with the most asked question of all; on a wall-hung cabinet, should the top and base sit within or above, the sides?

I see why for the overhead cabinets top and bottom should be within the sides, however every single overhead cabinet in various shops and kitchen stores have top and bottom sitting over the sides rather then within the sides. Most are concealed too. What I saw is the opposite to what is said in the video.. am I missing something?? Why arent they using stronger joints or are they the same but depends what fixings are used ..

Only just come around to this. A couple of points, if I may, which gp build upon what you have said. There are many times when I wonder about buying branded items. Is this branded screw going to be that much better than unbranded? I don’t know if I am paying for the name or paying for additional quality. In the case of Medite, you are undoubtedly paying for quality. It is streets ahead of the pressed cardboard mdf that the big boxes sell. I would not use big box mdf for anything that I wanted to be proud of. I do accept that mrmdf is squally better stuff than it’s equivalent plain mdf - but it’s still nowhere near the quality of Medite plain mdf, let alone Medite mrmdf. I’ve been given a lot of box box mdf and it sits in my timber rack and is only ever used for making jigs; even then, quite often I have to reinforce the edge to make it useable. So, pay the extra and get branded Medite - and I’m not being paid to say that. Although if Medite want to send me money or a pallet of free samples, I’m happy to supply my address. Second point, Peter is absolutely right in my view about aesthetics and strength. His series is about the basics of good woodworking and what I do is one step further than basics. It does retain the aesthetic that Peter talks about; and I think increases the strength greatly. With a router, although it can easily be done with a track saw, I rebate the top and bottom edges of the sides so that (if using 18mm thick as an example) the side is the same height as Peter’s but the rebate is 18mm deep (down) and 6mm wide (across). This gives me great glue area and I can pin down on the top and up from the bottom to hold the pieces in place whilst the glue cures. As I say, it’s a step further than the basic. One downside is that you would have to use a different measurement for any fixed shelves. One additional upside is that, if you are making something from which stuff will hang from the top (such as a hanging rail in a wardrobe) is that there is a mechanical joint (the rebate) as well as the chemical joint (glue) to retain integrity.

This isn't a valid test method, is it? Piece 1: direction of the nail is down and you pull up. Piece 2: direction of the nail is sideways and you still pull up. If you would pull sideways in the opposite direction of the nail's direction you would be able to compare both tests.

I think that: 1. for the standing cabinet the horizontal top board should be resting on top of the walls edges, to take the advantage of the walls support. 2. for the hanging cabinet, the horizontal bottom board should be in between the vertical wall boards, held in place with the dowels / screws.

Vor 3 Monate
Tiger Carpenter
Tiger Carpenter

@Ken Longo for the speed of production I would surely do the same style both on hanging and standing cabinets. And I would then choose the horizontal board to be in between the walls held by the dowels so at least the hanging cabinet bottom would less likely fall down under heavy load. Scientifically though for the standing cabinets or desks you naturally put the horizontal surface on top of the supports such as legs or side walls. PS most likely the standing cabinets will just use the narrow stretchers to keep the walls together, and then you would put a long kitchen top extending over few cabinets (stone or wood) on top of the walls support. and for the stand alone cabinet / chest of drawers etc, not necessarily meant to be in the kitchen, I would definitely put the horizontal surface on top of the walls, in case I needed it to change the bulb one day, and stand on it.

Hello Peter! Your study of the top and the base between the sides being a preferred joint, is an area much neglected. I fully agree with that where fastners, as demonstrated are used. However you could, with your practical knowledge be asked about a fish tank base, which is unique and thought provoking! Experienced manufacturers of fish tanks, always place the base between the sides, using just clear R.T.V. Silicone adhesive which is also astethically suitable. The reason for this is that it's shear strength is greater than it's tensile strength and will stretch alot, long before the joint fails. Also more immune to thermal or impact shock, with a thick application. The area of the joint surface is also an important consideration. This is of course a glass application. Thanks for the video!

Haven't watched yet, and I don't know anything about carpentry, but I'm going with the one on the right. The one on the right, the top board is supported by the side board. In the left, it's not. So the right side one seems, to me, to be more structurally stable. (Plus the image on the right is usually the correct one with things like this)

Vor 3 Monate

@Peter Millard so, for instance, if I we're building a table, you're telling me it would be stronger structurally to attach the legs to the side of the table top instead of putting them under to support the table top. I'm not saying you're wrong, as I said I don't have any carpentry experience, but that seems hard to believe.

Pretty much the only time you see the top-over-sides approach in commercial,cabinetry here is when the top overhangs the sides, and typically the front as well. In those circumstances you usually find a front and rear bearer that sits between the sides, that the top can be fixed to. Hope that makes sense! 👍

I make kitchen with top and bottom running through, same with wardrobes. Why? because kitchen base units are fitted with adjustable feet and that means the joints are in shear if the sides run through also if top and bottom run through then any mid dividers are the same height and shelf pin holes are all in line. ends dont matter as all my work has side cheeks anyway

Thanks, I was REALLY surprised by this video! It’s very informative. I’ve got two questions about this: 1. It seems this is really only for wall cabinets. Cabinets that are at eye level or on the floor like sideboards are usually made the other way around, and that seems logical to me (and also aesthetically more pleasing, since you can see the top). Is this correct? 2. Okay, if the top is on top of the sides, a nail won’t hold the sides very securely because it’s just thin and doesn’t really have any grip. But what about a good screw? And does this differ in any significant way between MDF and plywood? Thanks!

@Not my Real Name Thanks, both points make perfect sense to me! ☺️ 🙌 I have built a wall-mounted sideboard and a wall-mounted bathroom vanity the weaker way because I wanted neat countertops and so far, they haven’t fallen apart yet (they are 5 years old now – I hope it won’t happen when they age more). But for my new project, I’ve changed the design after seeing this video! Now I’m doing what you’ve mentioned, sandwiching the integral top between the sides and then putting a thinner top plate on top of everything. I’m just an amateur but these videos and comments help me improve!

Not my Real Name

Hey, I know your looking for a reply from the guy who made the video, but I’ve been a professional cabinet maker of 18 years (meaning I get paid to do it, not that I’m a master haha). 1) it is a little different for a base cabinet. The top of your base cabinet will basically be a countertop, which should sit on top of the cabinet sides. It depends on the specific case you want to build. If I have an additional top to go on the cabinet after it’s made, I personally still put the integral top of the cabinet between the sides, for shear strength of the pins/screws/nails when I lift and move the cabinet 2) using screw does not change what the video taught you. The shear strength of the screw is way more then the strength of the screw threads in any material, be it plywood or Mdf. Imagine pulling a screw with a hammer: more difficult then pulling a nail, but not as much pressure as you would need to sheer off the screw.

I'm an Interior draftsman, so I'm very familiar with cabinetry design. But, I have no Idea how to make them or connect one piece to the other. Until this video coming handy.

And therefore, dont use MDF for the complete body for cabinets or other structural builds, but rather for doors or fronts. That material can decapitate screws, when you work wrong with it and has not that structural soundness as plywood or full woodfurniture

Well if it is wall hung what u said is absolutely correct ,but if it is going under a counter ,like a kitchen counter ,then the cabinet will be under compression ,not under tension in which case the top and bottom should rest on the sides

Just an observation and not a criticism: I am 71 and was educated in many useful things by my father who was apprenticed as a carpenter up to WW2. He taught me to examine failures and learn from my mistakes. More than 50 years later I have seen many such joints fail and the one thing the weakest of them had in common is the lack of strength of the wood etc itself. It does not matter how strong the nail or screw is if the ‘wood’ is inherently weak. The granular nature of any particle board will be the weakest link of any joint. Try your tests again by trying to lever the joint apart as when we are dismantling stuff at the dump. Putting a heavy weight on the top will only push the joint together if it rests on the sides but when it only held in place by the nails/screws etc, it is not the fastener that will fail but the wood itself when the screw pulls a chunk of the core out with it! Otherwise, a terrific video.

I was always taught when driving in 2 nails. 1 nail should go straight in... the 2nd nail should go in askew. 45 degrees . Neither nail will be able to be pulled out without a lever. Even stronger if a 3rd nail is hammered in same as the 1st nail.(Straight up & down).

You’d be better off finding a local timber yard and supporting them with your business tbh, but if that isn’t an option then MDFdirect.co.uk and plydirect.co.uk would be a good place to start. For Birch ply I usually get bb/b 👍
