3 Unit 60 Cabinet and Countertop Installation Most cabinets and countertops used in residential construction are located in the kitchen.

4 Unit 60 Cabinet and Countertop Installation Rabbet joints make an attractive and sturdy fit for cabinet corners.

5 Unit 60 Cabinet and Countertop Installation Butt joints may be used when constructing cabinets. A reinforcing block should be installed in the corner if the material being used for the cabinet is less than 3/4.

6 Unit 60 Cabinet and Countertop Installation Dado joints provide good support for cabinet shelves.

7 Unit 60 Cabinet and Countertop Installation On a typical base cabinet, a face frame attaches to the front of the cabinet and a web frame attaches to the top.

9 Unit 60 Cabinet and Countertop Installation Cabinet backs are best attached by rabbeting the cabinet sides. At left, the back is flush with the edge of the sides. At right, the rabbet is deeper and the side projects about 1/4 past the back, making it possible to scribe the side against an uneven or out-of-plumb wall.

10 Unit 60 Cabinet and Countertop Installation Drawer sides are joined to the front or back with dovetail, lock-shouldered, or square-shouldered joints.

11 Unit 60 Cabinet and Countertop Installation Drawer slides allow drawers to be easily opened and closed. The slides may be mounted on the side, on the bottom, or under the drawer.

15 Unit 60 Cabinet and Countertop Installation Screws driven through mounting rails and wall surfaces fasten cabinets to wall studs.

16 Unit 60 Cabinet and Countertop Installation Cabinets are fastened to each other with wood screws driven through the face frame stiles. C-clamps may be used to temporarily hold the stiles tightly together.

17 Unit 60 Cabinet and Countertop Installation After wall cabinets have been installed, level and plumb base cabinets and fasten them to the wall.

20 Unit 60 Cabinet and Countertop Installation Hinges connect cabinet doors to the cabinet frame or case.

21 Unit 60 Cabinet and Countertop Installation Cabinet sliding doors at least 3/4 thick may be rabbeted to slide in grooves at the cabinet top and bottom. Cabinet sliding doors thinner than 3/4 thick are inserted in plastic tracks.

22 Unit 60 Cabinet and Countertop Installation Drawer pulls and knobs are available in many designs and finishes.

23 Unit 60 Cabinet and Countertop Installation A block clamped to the back of the cabinet piece being drilled prevents the wood from splitting.
