Woodworking Techniques: 5 Expert Ways for Building Cabinet Doors

Making cabinet doors is not as hard as it seems and there are a number of different ways of making them, starting with pocket hole jigs and a table saw to more robust cabinet frames using router based mortise and tenon bits, and even doweling jigs to get even stronger cabinet frames that might be needed for heavier insert panels, but there is even lap joint cabinet doors that can be made on the table saw, the with a bit of route rabbeting the insert panels can be made, but easiest, but not necessarily the most attractive cabinet doors are the “slab” doors that could be made from double sided melamine, Plywood, including double sided, Cherry and more, or even natural woods like Oak or Maple, many different options for woodworking and furniture making of cabinetry. And for all the DIY people who simply want to replace doors on existing cabinets, anyone with basic woodworking skills and a bit of time can save thousands of dollars by simply changing kitchen or bathroom cabinet door fronts, many, many options.

    Your audio is quite low

    Makes one wonder how many way one can put toghter a door๐Ÿ™‚

    That’s a pretty comprehensive video, Colin.
    Honestly, I’m not a fan of shaker style doors even though they’re probably the easiest to make. What are the chances of a video for something more decorative?
    I’m envisioning beveled corners, round over or ogee outside and inside edges with glass panels. Also a V groove around the faces of the rails and styles, or U groove fluting.

    I’m thinking all the wood would have to be milled at the same time in order for all the router work to line up perfectly. It would be great to see how you would approach it.

    Since I got my dowel master, doweling is the only way I make doors now. Love it.

    Thanks a bunch for all the tips, Colin! ๐Ÿ˜Š
    Stay safe there with your family! ๐Ÿ––๐Ÿ˜Š

    Wow, this is perfect. I am just about to launch into making a couple cabinet doors ๐Ÿ™‚

    Nice video, as always! I made my first kitchen cabinet last year with shaker doors. I purchased a router set to make mortise and tendon doors for 3/4" frames. I ran into a problem when inserting the panels. The 1/4" plywood for the panels as you probably know where I’m going with this, the 1/4" plywood is not quite a true 1/4" (actually 0.205 inch) so the panels didn’t fit tightly. Any ideas?

    Now that was an excellent demo video Colin! Nice job! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

    Youโ€™re the only YouTuber Iโ€™ve seen to use dowels to make cabinet doors. Luv it! I suspect dominoes would be great here as well.

  10. G Nic on June 3, 2023 at 12:54 pm

    That was a good demonstration. I always have problems with what width to make the frame, hinge type and spacing as well as knob placement. I restored a radial arm saw so half laps would be easy or I’d use a biscuit joiner instead of dowel.

  11. Bill Harris on June 3, 2023 at 12:55 pm

    Thanks Colin. Never done it but your right, doesnโ€™t look that difficult.

  12. Don Yantzi on June 3, 2023 at 1:02 pm

    Would bird feeders and bird houses require the wood to be planed? Or would a orbit sander with very rough grit be great as well. Just wondering. Or does all wood need to be planed, even if it has a flat surface?

  13. Bill J on June 3, 2023 at 1:03 pm

    Great video. I’ve seen most of these before in different videos but you have covered all of them in one video.

  14. THOMAS BRUBAKER on June 3, 2023 at 1:06 pm

    Sometimes when I watch you I learn what not to do. If you insist on using pocket screws in brittle material you should drill pilot holes. Thanks for another great video.
