Weak cabinet though. Relies on the finish nails to hold the weight of the deck and the contents stored inside the cabinets.

At a minimum, the deck should dado into the sides.

I think you need to look again. He tacks the deck in place then put his drilling temple in place drills and screws the deck. Look at the 5:46 minute marker.

I built cabinet for many years with out dadoes. Did you ever notice how framless cabinets are built? Most are doweled or screwed together without dadoes. Now that CNC machine are becoming the norm some are using blind dadoes. Not so much for strength but to facilitate assembly.

thats a great system he has if your doing a lot of cabinets.ive always used dadoes but the way he did it is plenty strong,probably a lot better than most of the crap youd get at the box stores.

Thanks for posting this, AK.

I got some ideas…..... What I really need is an adjustable height table.

@ Michael – not finishing nails. If you notice, he is using staple gun.

I NEVER do dadoes except a slide in back. IMO all they do is add extra work and the add nothing to the strength of the cabinet.
