Half Lap & Varying Outside Edges

Half Lap Edge for Cabinet Doors

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.

Lazy Susan Doors

Lazy Susan Cabinet Door Joints

A pair of Lazy Susan (Inside Corner) Cabinet Doors can be paired together with a Butt Joint (D7 Outside Edge) or 45 Degree Miter Cut. Our catalog specifications below describe how to order each with descriptions and line drawings. Our 45 Degree Miter Cut can also be used in applications where a door, wainscot panel, or create-a-column components need to join together at a 90 degree outside corner.

Butt Joint (D7 Outside Edge) for Inside Corner Lazy Susan Cabinet Doors

This method of joining together two cabinet doors at a 90 degree inside corner, requires one of the two doors to be ordered with a wider stile and a D7 (square) Outside Edge where the door will connect to the other. The second door is ordered with a standard width stile and a D7 (square) Outside Edge along the side that attaches to the first door.

This method allows a consistent look between the two doors and allows you to join the two doors with a continuous hinge or screws. See our catalog specifications above for line drawings.

45 Degree Miter Cut for Inside & Outside Corner Cabinet Doors

As an alternative to a Butt (D7) Joint, two doors can be mitered at a 45 Degree angle to cover a 90 Degree corner when assembled. This method requires that a D7 edge be ordered on Traditional style doors to create an Inside or Outside 45 Degree Mitered Edge.

This method is also available for Mitered style doors using profiles 2 1/4″ and wider. Please keep in mind that this method does change the visual appearance of the inside parts on Mitered style doors. Please see our catalog specifications above for line drawings and ordering guidelines for the 45 Degree Miter Cut method.

Additional Information

As an additional note, an alternative assembly option would be the use of our Lazy Susan Molding #1345. With this molding, two doors can be joined together without the need for a 45 Degree Miter Cut. This molding is often helpful with Mitered style doors, to avoid altering the visual appearance of the mitered profile.
