Attaching Face frame with Kreg Jig
I ordered our hallway hutch face frames from Tape-Ease in Wisconsin and the cabinet boxes from another source. I could have just glued and clamped the face frames on, but I didn't think that wouldn't be sturdy enough. I didn't want to put any nail holes in the front of the frame either. At least a year ago, I came across an inexpensive solution for drilling pocket holes call the 'Kreg Jig'. It allows you to drill pocket holes in the adjacent piece.
