Large raised panel end piece.8/18
I have a pantry at the end of a set of kitchen cabinets. The side of the pantry will all show.
I plan on building a large raised 4 panel end. Basically a big door out of 3/4 or it.
Would glueing the whole raised panel piece to a sheet of plywood be sufficient?
I have never needed a panel of this size before and I am worried about it warping.
I do this on a regular basis. I glue the panel to the plywood side and the back of the face frame. I run a 1/4" bead of yellow glue down the middle of each stile and rail. I use clamps to hold in place until dry. I have even used screws from inside the cabinet to hold until dry. Then I remove the screws.
I have done this for years. I have done so many I have lost count. Never had a call back for a failure.
I do the same more or less. I just glue the stiles and rails to the carcass and nail it from the inside of the box. I mitre my face frame to the paneled end, but that's purely preference.
I do it basically the same as these other fellows, and like Joe, I've done it many many times and never a problem.
Thanks guys, appreciate it.
This is very common for us... fridge, pantry, etc. We make a "large door" and treat it like any other planted on panel. We tend to use four panels. We tend to put the mid rail just below counter height which matches the top rail of our base end panels. We glue to the back side of the faceframe and screw from the inside. We finish both sides of the panel...
I'm not sure it really needs glued. I leave my ply side inset 3/4, round over the back of the faceframe and the front edge of the raised panel with an 1/8 roundover bit and screw it to the plywood. The roundover leaves a nice transition at the joint and there is no need to glue to the faceframe. I've never had one warp to my knowledge. If it ever needs removed, it comes off easily.
