First off, love this podcast, but I've got a bone to pick.
It was said by one of you on this episode that you can't glue a face frame to plywood with no fasteners. You absolutely CAN do that. I worked in a custom cabinet shop for a year and have been building them myself for years after. This was how all face frames were attached in the custom shop (They had been doing it for thirty years with no problems). Wood glue makes an extremely strong joint, even on plywood. The only use for biscuits on face frames would be for aligning things (biscuits are for losers ;-); as for pocket holes, if you don't have enough clamps they are a good substitute. However, neither of them are needed for strength.
Probably coming off as a know-it-all, but I just can't help correcting that statement. Maybe go get a little lesson on the wonders of wood glue from your friends at Fine Woodworking. They'll let you know what's up ;-) If you can, talk to Mike Pekovich because he's nice. Matt Kenney will probably just make fun of you.
