I want to build a laundry center and bathroom vanity using frame and panel construction. Paint finish. I have table saw, router table and miter saw but lack rail and stile bits, jointer ,thickness planer and drill press.
My concept is to assemble hardwood frames using Rockler floating tenon joinery. After the frame is assembled, I will rabbet the inside edge so that I can inset a plywood panel that will be tacked and glued to the hardwood frame. Finally, add miterered molding to hold the door panel in place and sit proud on the frame. Looking for suggestions on what type of molding to use. I’ll then treat these completed panels as if they were plywood cut to size and use them for the sides of the cabinets I will build. I am debating whether to try using table saw dado blade to cut tongues and grooves that will be used to assemble the cabinets and attach the face frame or should I keep it simple and simply screw the components together and plug the holes.
This will be a first for me and I’d like to hear from someone who has used this approach and can give me pointers. I also need suggestions as to hinges…........I’d prefer not to use Euro hinges or mortising standard hinges. I will be using face frames assempled with pocket hole joinery. Perhaps Rockler has a non mortise hinge for full overhang doors
