37mm set back, iron on vs, solid hard wood
« on: November 18, 2020, 10:49 PM »
Working on a new built in for our kitchen.  I had planned to use iron on edge banding but I now want to use 1/4" hard wood.  My question concerns the 37mm set back for the front shelf pin hole.  What is the best practice here?  Put the first hole 37mm from the raw edge of the ply, or wait until I put on the hardwood and then go back 37mm?

The 37 is from the finished edge.  This is less important if you are using them ONLY for shelf pins but typically they also double as hardware holes for door hinge and drawer slides.

Thank you.  This is a kitchen pantry with shelves and pull-outs only, so no hinge plates to mount.

Check your hole spacing for the pull out slides many use 37mm set back.  If you already drilled the holes you can still do it but if not I would wait until the edge banding is on.

Yep, nothing done yet except roughly cut the panels.  Just wanted to get opinions.  Hopefully get the edging milled today and still playing with the LR32 to see the best way to put that second slide hole in (261mm from finished front).
