Add a Mitered Integral Bead to Cabinet Face Frames

This detail softens the edge while creating a deep shadowline

One way Connecticut cabinetmaker Brent Benner has learned to imbue professional quality and craftsmanship into his pieces is by milling a mitered integral bead into cabinet face frames. First, he marks the miters; then he uses dry biscuits to get the layout of the rails and stiles right. He uses an auxiliary table to judge the cuts, and he cuts multiples of opposing pieces to ensure consistency and accuracy.

To see the process step by step and to learn how Brent puts double-stick tape to work in this project, read Dress Up Cabinet Face Frames with a Mitered Integral Bead from Fine Homebuilding issue #200 (December 2008/January 2009), pp. 118, 120.
