Brand new to this site. Been making custom cabs for a couple years now.was more of a hobby but word of mouth has turned it full time for me. Anyway, I have some shaker doors for kitchen base cabinets I just built. They are out of square… arg. And almost every one my nearly an eighth of inch from corner to corner.
These are not inset. The y are 3/4 overlay over a 2 inch face frame. Plenty of room to hide the flaw, except for on the bigger cabinets where two doors close into each other with an eighth inch space between them.
I found the cause of my mistake: mitersaw fell out of square after my initial setup. All my rails are slightly off.
two questions: haven’t cut the pockets for the. Hidden hinges yet t want to start finishing tomorrow. Think these doors will work or are they too far out of square.
second question: I’m kind of getting sick of miter saws falling out of square and considering a jig or extension wing for my table saw. To anyone who makes their own doors, can you advise me as to a preferred method for these cuts?
it seems to me that the miter saw is the one tool in my arsenal that just does not work well for accurate and true production.
thank you in advance. I appreciate you all.
