HOW TO DO FACEFRAMES

FACEFRAMES AND SIMILAR JOINTS

  1. Apply glue to end grain part of joint or into dowel hole.

  2. Apply pressure with bar clamps.

  3. Place electrode feet across the glue line and press trigger switch on hand unit.

  4. Heat a few seconds. Over heating will over dry the glue and it will be a weak joint.

  5. Using dowels, spines or other type lock joints are highly recommended.

  6. When the facing is to be added to the front of a cabinet, you may find it more applicable to leave the lock type joint out.  When the cabinet will support the face frame, the dowels are no longer adding strength.  We suggest welding an end grain joint to a side grain, apply glue to the end grain, apply heavy pressure, and then set the joint.

Note:  If the facing must stand any great stress, support any weight or will be subject to any extensive abuse, we recommend using a dowel.  Always allow the glue to cool a few minutes before releasing pressure.  Cool glue is stronger than hot glue.
