Cabinetry work is work revolving around all detail. In this paper you will get a clear understanding on how cabinets and countertops are made from raw wood to the finished product inside the homeowners house. You start by building and construction of cabinets and countertops start from raw wood or lumber. The lumber you use is always particleboard that comes in sheets of all sizes thickness and length. The two main sizes in thickness of particleboard used is ¾ inch and ⅝ inch boards. Sizes from length are all different as well there is sizes from a 36 inch board by 4 feet to 48 inch by 16 feet in length.
How the finished product is made. You first start out by getting your prints with all the measurements on it. You look it over and think to yourself what size boards can you use to conserve all the lumber you have in your shop. After thats all figured out you cut the board to the sizes you need and take them to an open spot in a shop. Then you find your laminate you need for your project and do the same as you did with the wood. Figure out how to make your cute to get the most out of the sheet. Next, you cut the laminate and take it back along with the raw wood you just cut. After everything is all in place then you get contact cement. Contact cement is a adhesive glue that dries and then you stick it against another surface that has the spray on it. If you stick the two surfaces together too soon the glue will not stick right. Contact cement needs to be dried completely on both surface to stick the best as possible. After sticking the laminate on raw wood you need to roll the laminate on. To roll laminate on wod its recommended to use 75 lbs of pressure for it to hold the best and for the longest amount of time. After getting it rolled on then there is a specific things that you have to do in specific orders to complete the order.
First, after the laminate is stuck to the deck of the board then you must flip the board upside down so you can place the build down onto the deck. Build down is nothing other than support for a top when it sets on a cabinet. Build down comes in a variety of lengths whichever length you need and the width theres only two sizes which are 1 ¼ and 2 ½ inch.
Placement of build down is very important, you must get it perfectly flush with the deck of the main board. You will use ¾ and 7/8 inch nails depending on the size of the build down. If the build down is ¾ you will use the ⅝ths nails and if the build down is ⅝ you will use ⅞ths nails. If there is a sink cutout in the order then you must route out the sink hole using a template to make it perfect. placing build down around a sink cutout is tricky. You must use a chunk of wood thats ⅞ inch by 3 inches in 3 spots on the cut out. Some build down you can’t run it flush with the deck, when the top is going to be placed along a wall you have to hold the build down in on the deck ⅛ inch. This is incase the top will need scribed.
