Premium Retention Test – Cordless Tool Station – Week 4

Cordless Tool Station

Week 4: Make the adjustable shelf and doors. Drill and install doors.

Each of these steps should be worked on prior to our live session so you can bring any questions you may have to our live stream.

STEP 1: Make enough banding to cover the front edge of the shelf and all four edges of the two doors.

STEP 2: Cut the shelf to size and band the front edge.

STEP 3: Cut the doors to length and band the top and bottom. Carefully measure your cabinet and cut the doors accordingly for 1/2″ overlay and a 3/32” gap between the doors.

STEP 4: Cut the doors to width and band the edges.

STEP 5: Bore the cup hole for the hinges. If you’re not familiar with Euro hinges, it’s a good idea to cut a piece of scrap exactly the same size as your door and do test holes in that to make sure they’re correct. Start with a cup distance of 3 mm.

STEP 6: Install the hinges in the doors.

STEP 7: Install the doors on the cabinet.

STEP 8: Align the doors using the adjustments available on the hinges.

    If MDF won’t hold screws well, why can we expect screws in the sides of the cabinet to adequately hold drawers?

      Hello Michael,
      Screws seem to find enough holding power in MDF to support drawer slides for typical kitchen cabinets. I haven’t come across any problems with this.
