I am building kitchen cabinets and am using 24” angled front cabinets for the upper corners. As I was getting ready to assemble, I realised that I might not be able to get the shelf in after assembly.

Is it there a trick that I am missing or do I have to fit it in before I assemble?

Should be able to get them in. Depends a lot on how you build the cabinet and face frame
(Stile width) (back thickness) (scribe space)

If I were you I would build the cabinet and before you put backs on (if you have backs) check to see if you can fit the shelf through the frame opening. You should be able to figure what to do at that point.

When I installed a few, I had to insert both, on end, then lift them both to just above the first, lower position, install the support pegs. Then I lifted the second and installed its support pins.

Have your say...
