Craft armoire is essentially a box with an attached door. Furniture cutters choose what types of wood, joints, hinges and ending to create the cabinet. They make their choices depending on how and where they think the cabinet owner will use the finished product. The builder will connect the sides of the corner cabinet with different angles than the center cabinet.
Two dominant forms of craft armoire are those with facial frames and those without face frames. Face frames are pieces of wood that are joined and cover the front edges of the cabinet box. The face frame adds support to the box and is a place where the furniture cutter can attach the hinges to the door. The best carpentry method is open to debate, as Rocker Woodworking explains.
The builder will add a door to the finished box. More often than not, he will attach the door with hinges. There are countless numbers of hinges available. The hinge plays a crucial role in creating the look and feel of the end craft armoire. The builder chooses hinges based on the way and stretch he wants the door to turn up. He also needs to take into account the weight and the thickness of the door, as well, if he wants to hide the walk.
