The cabinets that I've made used melamine for the carcasses. The face frames were of red oak. I used a lot of Titebond glue, shot 16 gauge finishing nails through and gently clamped around the edges until the glue dried. Try to put the nails into parts of the grain so that they don't show. The nail holes can be filled with matching filler. (WB if you're using WB finishing products.)
Come to think of it, the cabinets in the kitchen were done that way. Yes, I can find the filled holes but I really have to look for them.
Use the right tool for the job.
