A Better Way to Build Wall Cabinets

Sliding dovetails and an unorthodox face frame make the case stronger, better looking, and easier to build

by

Learn to make a strong, attractive wall-hung cabinet like this one by Garrett Hack. The smart sliding-dovetail case construction creates a very sturdy cabinet and makes it easy to attach decorative moldings. Hack’s unique design also includes an unorthodox face frame that blends seamlessly into the case. The face frame makes shelf construction is easier since you can run through-dadoes for the shelves. Although best for hanging cabinets, this design works for standing cabinets as well.
