    Could any one give me any incite on how to attach face frames to cabinets with out pocket screws or is this the only way. Glue by itself seems to weak and cutting a groove into the frame seem like a great way to ruin the mortises of the frame. I apologize for my ignorance and thank you for your help.

    Glue alone should not be to weak, as it is typically a long grain to long grain connection, which is very strong.

    In his book “Illustrated Cabinetmaking: How to Design and Construct Furniture That Works” (ISBN-978-1-56523-369-0), Bill Hylton mentions using biscuits as an aid in accurately positioning the frame. Dowels, loose tenons, and splines should do the same job, without the need for a biscuit machine.
