I’ve got about 20 kitchen and bathroom cabinets to build for a customer and at first the boxes were going to be 1/2” cherry plywood with 3/4” cherry face frames. Great no problem, then he told me it would be 3/4” plywood, he got a good deal on the plywood. (He’s supplying the material) Well when I went to pick up the plywood, it turned out to be 3/4” cherry melamine.
My problem now is how would be the best way to attach the melamine sides to the cherry face frames. Normally I would dado the sides 1/4” into the FF and white glue and staple the sides to the FF. Now I’m thinking a 3/8” deep dado and using a urathane construction adhesive and stapling to the face frames but I’m worried that the melamine will blow out and chip. my experience with melamine has pretty much been just shelves.
Any other ideas or suggestions?
