Nested face frames puzzle joints?

Postby Robert Williams » Sat, Aug 25 2007, 9:43PM

I am curious if any one have successfully integrated face frame puzzle joints into projects? I could see when edge banding is not an issue it may work great on some projects. I am just interested in some feed back on the pros & cons.

It worked good. I just don't know what level of job I would ever use it on. I made this bed for my grandson. It has 3 drawers on each side and I used the sports ball knobs.The whole bed(MDF) was cut on the router(just to prove I could). Faceframes, Drawer Fronts, cab parts, Headboard and footboard with carvings, Metabox drawer bottoms and backs.

We've used the puzzle joint face frames for some painted projects...basically we've used 18mm Baltic Birch so there are no voids and a nice straight product.

The inside of the frame has simply been sanded and painted - a few of the pieces have been edge banded on the outside, but assembled first.
