Kitchen Cabinet Building: Is It Safe to Use Glue to Reduce the Cost?
Glue is an integral element of kitchen cabinet building. Glue not only adds structural integrity to a kitchen cabinet, it strengthens the joints and seals the raw edges of the ends of many kinds of wood. Glue is not used in the doors of more expensive cabinetry, in order to allow the panels to flex and move freely in the door frame, since the center panels are often made of a separate wood, or separate thickness of wood. By floating in the frame, the wood moves instead of warping. Other than that, glue is certainly safe to use to reduce cost.
