Video Vault: 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 work is by milling a mitered integral bead into cabinet face frames. In this gem from the Fine Homebuilding Video Vault, Brent shows how to use dry biscuits to get the layout of the rails and stiles right, how to mark the miters, how to use an auxiliary miter-saw table to judge the cuts, and more.
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.
