How to easily install base cabinet doors straight and level (overlay application)

One thought on “Create an Easy Door Mounting Jig For Base Cabinets

  1. For the 1/2” overlay cabinets I clamped a length of 1” aluminum angle to the bottom of the front frame level with the bottom edge to keep the door parallel to the bottom of the front frame and consistently 1” from the bottom edge. It works well with the cabinet lying on its back and also makes a nice “shelf” to rest and align the door on if the cabinet is upright. Aluminum is relatively light and smooth compared to steel but to further lessen the likelihood of damaging the face frame surface, cover the contact surface of the angle with tape (duct tape works well and stays put).
