Question (WOODWEB Member) :
Does anyone taper the pull side of inset doors so at the apex the door will not hit the FF? I have 3/32nd's reveal, 13/16 doors and FF and am wondering if this is necessary? Secondly I was told by a fellow more experienced cabinet maker that if you make your reveals 1/8 around doors/drawers the paint buildup will shrink your reveal to 3/32nd. That seams significant even with thick milk paint and also seems to be pushing it for euro hinges w/5mm bore distance. Any input would be appreciated.

From Contributor B:
This is an interesting post. I appreciate learning new things on this forum. I am puzzled though why you feel using a Euro hinge presents a particular challenge with this application (with or without a bevel).
Contributor B: He is concerned with expansion of the door size after fabrication/installation. The type of hinge is really irrelevant. I do not plan on going back to each house at a later date to adjust the hinges 1/32" each summer and winter. Paint doesn't make a difference unless you slather it on.
