How to Make and Connect a Encounter Frame





Quick and easy way to make and connect a face frame to a cabinet utilizing pocket gap screws and glue. The faceframe is assembled utilizing pockehole screws and hooked up to a cabinet with glue and clamps. I’m utilizing slice off brad nails in the corners to prevent slipping when glueing up.

  1. Just a little tip, an air drill works twice as fast and looks twice is good in less time ✌️ Love your show ! I really dig it man

  2. Why make an overlap, just to router it even?

  3. If you use a different clamp on the Kreg jig it will let the drill shavings out and it will drill A LOT easier.

  4. I guess the burn marks from the bearing will sand out

  5. how do you know how much overhang is needed on the faceframe on the inside of the cabinet?

  6. In my class my styles were not perfectly flush with my rails. Do I have to redo it?

  9. I prefer biscuits because you do not see those ugly pocket holes on the inside of the box carcass.

  15. That sure was a quick way to make a face frame! Have you ever tried a doweling jig instead of pocket screws? I prefer dowels over screws any day… but that's just me, maybe I'm just old school.

  16. Dave, I've got a question.. Is the face frame flush with the upper part of the shelf or to you have a reveal? Aloha from HI

  19. Love the brad nail trick

  20. nice video, pretty crafty trick with the Brad nails. I noticed the pocket holes were a little slow to drill; it looks like you covered the top of the jig, that should be left open for waste to be ejected

  21. David, did I ever tell you, you're my hero? You are the wind beneath my wings. Great video!

  22. Hi David.

    I am a cabinet maker by profession. The method we use to connect face frames is with biscuits. If we even mentioned pocket holes, a client would go elsewhere.

    Just some constructive criticism, it looks nice, but there are more aesthetic joinery methods than pocket holes.

  23. Excellent result! the moving camera makes the video pop up more! good effects!

  24. I really digging how the camera is moving a little while you are shooting. do you have a camera man now or is it some kind of a rig you have?

  25. The trim router trick was awesome, any time I try and make a face frame it never lines up with the box I am attaching it too.  Thanks for the tip, now I just need to buy a trim router.

  26. Hi David I also liked the video and the brad nail trick, I use the same trick for lining up dowel holes only pulling out the brad and use the hole that's left for my brad point drill in both side's of the wood [if that makes sense],

  28. The cabinet is going to look great and I love the contrasting woods! Are you going to do a video on the glass etching? Glass etching and stained glass are two things I would love to add to some projects. Keep up the good work!

  33. Gracias por este excelente vídeo, tenia dudas de como colocar los marcos, lo estaba complicando demasiado, verte hacerlo me renovó los ánimos.

  34. Hey Dave I have a tip for you. When you clamped the kreg jig down you covered up the holes on top of the jig that lets the saw dust escape. The drilling will go a lot easier if those holes are left open.

  35. David, I really liked the format and personal feel of this video. Keep up the good work.
