Suppose you have a lower cabinet with a solid wood top and a bookcase above. You’d like to locate or attach the upper to the top.
I have used dowels (via dowel centers) and screws from below (not so good going into end grain of the face frame).
What about a pocket screw hole precut in the backside of the stile where it terminates at the solid wood top? Have you tried this?
If this would work, it would be enough to locate the bookcase, but not enough for transporting the two as one piece. In that case, if your 5.2mm back had a lower nailer, there could be pocket holes on the backside of this.
Curious what you’re thinkin’.
