What to do when cabinets are slightly out of square
I was trying my hand at making some kitchen cabinets. I glued and screwed the sides and the bottom with butt joints and 1 5/8 inch dry wall screws. I dadoed grooves for the back panel figuring it would help keep everything square (and it appeared to).
I finished up my face frames and checked for square. All was well.
Today, I went to attach my face frames and the boxes seemed to be about 3/32 – 1/8 inch out of square (one diagonal longer than the other).
I can’t start over, so I figured I would take my best shot at attaching the face frames to the boxes. I took a square and made sure the frames over hung the boxes by about 1/4 of an inch on the sides like I had intended. Unfortunately my frames now extend above the top of the box (which I guess I can clean up with a flush trim bit).
My question: Am I totally sunk? I was doing inset doors (and I think that is fine as long as the frames are square). But, what about the drawers? I was going with some under mount slides so now I’m wondering if I’m going to have to account for some off-square in the box? Any advice, would be well received!
