Half Lap & Varying Outside Edges

Download PDF Here

A pair of cabinet doors or a bank of drawer fronts can be easily paired by choosing a Half Lap Outside Edge option or by using a combination of Varying Outside Edge Profiles.

A Half Lap Edge uses a rabbet cut on one edge of each product so that the edges can overlap and fit together. Alternatively, a product may be ordered with Varying Outside Edge Profiles. This is common with a bank of drawer fronts that may have a profiled edge on the stiles with a square (D7) edge on the top and/or bottom rails so that the drawers can be butted up to one another.

Using Additional Outside Edge Profiles

All of WalzCraft’s cabinet door and drawer front styles include the cost of one Outside Edge Profile; however, a different Outside Edge Profile can be designated for each of the four sides of your product.

It is common to butt together two products with a square (D7) edge, while other scenarios call for various Outside Edge Profiles along each edge of the product. Please see our catalog specifications to view the correct abbreviations for placing your quote or order.

Half Lap Edge Option

Half Lap Doors are to be ordered as a pair and edged so that they fit together like a puzzle. Once installed, a Half Lap cabinet door pair will look like the right stile of the left door is butted up to the left stile of the right door. To create this look, a 3/8″ wide x 3/8″ high rabbet cut is applied to the front side of one door and the back side of the other door.

This requires one non standard part, depending on which door is to open first in the pair. Please see our online catalog specifications to view the correct designations for placing your quote or order for Half Lap Edge cabinet door pairs.
