Been viewing videos on how to install kitchen cabinets.
I am old school, When I started we built the bottom ones, then built the top ones in house. This is what we were taught at cabinet school.
Few years later I built cabinets in my shop then took them to the house and installed them. Once again I always installed the base cabinets, got them level, then used a jig to hang the uppers. I set the jig on top of the lowers, as the lowers were already leveled it was LESS work to hang the uppers. One person could install the kitchen cabinets.My jig was built from a threaded leveling jack, I attached plywood to the bottom and a strip to the top so it would mar the finish of cabinets.
NEW school I see a lot of installers hanging uppers first. There is always 2 people, one trying to hold the cabinet on the line, the other guy screwing them to wall. ONLY once have i seen a fellow use a 54” jig made to hold the upper while he screwed it to the wall.
I am guessing neither method is right or wrong. I also think each one has its strong points.
How do you LJers hang yours ?
