My wife has been wanting me to build her a corner cupboard for the kitchen and I like the shaker style, but my question is, how would you construct the cabinet using only hand tools? Miters on the rear of the carcass glued together long grain to long grain and use the shelves in dado joints to hold it together? Then through mortise and tenon face frame nailed and glued to the front to hold it all together? Or would you miter the long side and then dovetail the top and bottoms. I’m just working through it in my head and I want to be strong and long lasting. The easy way out would be pocket hole joinery, but I really want to use hand tools only for this project.
