Installing a drawer front in an inset application – differs slightly than overlay applications

  1. So you leave the double sided foam tape in when you attach the drawer front? Does it compress enough that it doesn’t leave a gap? Or do you remove it once the screws have been seated (and of course removed to eliminate the tape)?

    1. Yes. It is only about 1/32″ thick anyway, but compresses as well. Does it leave a gap? Sure, but not one any of our customers has complained about, even the ones we do in our own shop for our assemblies. But, our method is only a suggestion. You are more than welcome to devise a way that works for you and leaves no gap. But, we will say that this is BY FAR the easiest to implement and we live with any small gap. Try and see if you like it and if not, come up with a way that works for you!

      By the way, the tape stays on. Pulling it off would just add time/mess and reintroduce the issue of lining up the drawer front which the tape solved in the first place.
