Board attached to the wall has a dado (half lap) cut on the side toward the wall. Mount piece has another opposite half lap piece mounted or cut into the frame of the piece to mount. Mount the wall board level, allowing room at the ceiling to let the piece go over the mount board and drop the half laps together. The system used to be used by a lot of cabinet installers. You mount your half lap mount boards level around the kitchen wall. The cabinets have the opposite lap cut into the top frame rail or a mount board. You hang the cabinets on the mount boards and run crown moulding or plate rail around the top to close the top gap. That way you don’t have to hold up the heavy cabinet up while someone screws them fast and you don’t have to worry if the studs line up with the cabinet case where you can’t run a screw.
