Fixed shelf / Divider2/23
I build frameless cabinets , staple and screw construction .I always have a problem trying to efficiently place[ and hold in place while I secure it ] either a fixed shelf in say a pantry cabinet or a vertical divider in a wall cabinet .
Does anyone have a good jig or technique they could share with me for accomplishing this ?
We make horseshoe - U shaped jigs from scratch--- one half is the setting of the divider or the shelf and the other side is the offset of the stapler head or room to screw and fasten
For fixed horizontal shelves, I cut a piece of scrap and reference off the bottem of the cabinet, drill holes from in side the cabinet on each side, set the fixed shelf on the support and screw from the outside. I support the other side temporary with spring clamps while screwing the first, then move the spacer to the other side and finish. For verticle partitions, if there is adjustable shelves, use a shelf and add a 1/8" spacer to get the proper spread.
Thanks for the helpful responses
I use the Lamello P system for cabinet boxes now. Way easier, they're adjustable, I can bring everything to the jobsite flat-pack. I use the hand-held machine to make slots, but you can use CNC too. Worth a look.
