So I am back to work on the kitchen and I have the mixer lift cabinet installed and am now building the door for said cabinet.
This is what I used to look like

and this is what it looks like now.

Some years ago I bought a router door set of bits for just such a job and am finally getting to use them, I really like how they bring a door together. So I got the styles and rails cut and routed they fit together like not so great by themselves, if I clamp them the fit better but still no what I want, so I got out my Kreg pocket hole jig and made a test corner from scraps that I had already routed to test the bits and how to fit them. Drilled some pocket holes and lo and behold they fit together perfectly.

There is no glue in that test joint but of course the door will be glued and screwed? My question is, is there a down side to glueing and screwing?

Guess I don't understand what you mean by they don't fit to your satisfaction when they're clamped. Seems the clamps should bring things together quite nicely??

You mean both qlueing and [pocket] screwing? I'd do both, myself. If nothing else the screws act as clamps for the glueup. The only disadvantage I can see is what little clue cleanup might be needed depending on the amount of squeeze out.

As Dennis mentioned, squeeze out might be an issue. I've screwed and glued cabinets joints several times. You can reduce the squeeze out problem just by taping the edges with blue tape. A little extra prep, but saves work later, and no issues with finishing due to glue residue. Just be careful not to trap tape in the joint as you pull it together.

PAUL GAUTHIER: In addition to the glue issues, there are the pocket holes to deal with when the mounted doors are open. THe holes may be unsightly to some folks and could be filled with commercially available plugs or with dowels cut to fit in either matching or contrasting wood and of course then the glue issues arises again. In many cases the glue can be dealt with using a light touch with a card scraper. :idea:
