Applied ends and mitered doors6/20
I'm curious as to how everyone handles applied raised panel ends when using mitered doors for the rest of the cabinet?
In the past I've used cope and stick applied panels, made in house and just tried to match the panel raise profile as best I could to the mitered door panel profile. We leave a scribe on the face frame and put the applied end panel behind it.
I've thought about plywood ends and ordering a door the combined height of my doors and drawer fronts and an inch or so less than the depth of the cabinet and applying it to the cabinet end.
I've never had any complaints but wonder if there is a better way.
Thanks for any advice,
I don't do this but I've see others do it. Make the applied end just like a faceframe and door. With the space around the door and everything. Just looks like a door on the end of the run.
I guess this only works if you are doing a face frame cabinet though.
I build mine like Leo G described. I build a face frame for all exposed ends and order a door for the opening. These are attached with screws from the inside of the cabinets. I even attach a cleat on the bottom of the panel that rest on the face frame. This keeps the panel from dropping down if the screw should ever loosen up.
Thanks Leo and Bob.
