RTA Cabinet Assembly Tips

Traditional Face-Frame RTA Kitchen Cabinets are Quick & Easy to Assemble with Just a Few Basic Tools.  You will Need a Drill/Driver with a #2 Phillips Bit, Rubber Mallet, Wood Glue, and a Damp Rag... That's It!

  • Assemble your cabinets on a clean, sturdy, soft surface that will not damage the cabinet.


  • Our cabinets have naturally strong rabbeted joints, mechanical fasteners, and dovetail drawers.  Applying wood glue to these joints will make your cabinets even stronger.


Pro Tip:  A small chip brush (from the paint section) or acid brush (from the plumbing or welding section) makes it easy to brush glue on the dovetail drawer joints.  Keep this in a small cup of water while you work.


  • Use a rubber mallet to gently tap together dovetail drawer joinery.


  • Wipe off any excess glue with a damp rag before it dries.

  • While one person can assemble our cabinets, an extra set of hands is always helpful.
