Paul has made his preference for recessed doors and expertly fitted drawers amply clear — especially here:
Aesthetically, most may agree that recessed doors and drawers with tight tolerances look elegant and exudes quality. But, smooth running, soft-close, full extension drawers that can take a ton of weight look very practical and extremely useful for kitchen cabinets (or large drawers in dressers). But I don’t particularly like the look of either “Euro-style” or face-frame cabinets, the latter being worse from a user’s point of view.
Is it possible to make drawers without “an inch of crawl space around” and “metal runners” that Paul despises and still have them run smooth with a load of utensils and/or cans and bottles in them? Or is there a middle path that combines the use of good hardware with graceful looks of the kind that Paul teaches?
