Kitchen Cabinet Construction Methods
Kitchen cabinet construction methods refers to the various ways the cabinet boxes and drawers are put together. The various ways the different pieces are secured to each other.
Dovetail joints are very strong. As you can see from the picture the ends of the two boards are notched with V shape notches such that the notches fit against and into each other. When they’re tight, this is a very solid form of joint.
This type of joint is used to connect different pieces of a drawer together.
Mortise and Tenon
The mortise and tenon joint is where a square or rectangular post on one piece sticks into a square or rectangular slot in another. This type of joint is used to connect different pieces of a cabinets frame together.
A dado joint is where a groove or slot is cut into one piece of wood so another can fit into it. This is commonly done to fit drawer bottoms into the pieces that form the sides, the front, and the back. A dado groove is cut into the four pieces at the same distance from the bottom of the drawer, so the drawer bottom slides in and fits well when the four pieces are connected.
