Building the face frame was super fast and easy to do with pocket jointery:

Corbin,

Looks like the cabinets will be very nice. I was curious about your decision to build the face frame first. Usually I build them last, in case the actual drawers need modifying.

Hi Johnathon — I read on a Cabinet making book that it is easier to build the face frame first. I was also talking to one of my friends at work (Jason Beaver) who also recommended it. So far, it seems to have worked out just fine to do it in this order.
