Hard maple face frames
Hello, I'm going to be building a large built in book case and the customer wants me to use hard maple because that is what the high end cabinet co. Used on his painted cabinets. I got the wood milled it successfully and cut everything to length. My questions are:
1 Should I micro bevel all the joints when joining? I noticed hairline cracks on the painted cabinets.
2 should I use a glue other than the yellow carpenters I've used since the beginning of time? I plan on using loose tenons.
3 the customer wants farrow and ball paint so if anyone knows anything about this stuff please let me know. I don't finish my work but want to start.
