Corner Stretchers

Postby Donald Thomson » Tue, Feb 21 2012, 10:16PM

Can anyone tell me how the Corner Stretchers work. When you go in to Add Stretcher Settings there is an option to have

"Back" Stretchers Outside

I have no idea how to add a stretcher to a corner cabinet but this looks like it might lead somewhere.

Thanks!

Two type of corner stretchers: nailers and sleepers. For nailers, just select a back and then add stretcher. You can add the nailer on the inside of the back or the outside. for a sleeper, choose toe kick and a back then add stretcher.

Rick,

The "Sleeper" doesn't work with an angle front cabinet though. Is this correct?

Kerry,

That is correct. This is because an angle front cab will not always have the back and the toe kick parallel to each other.

Very nice feature.

One problem. I add the stretcher and then try to align it with the top of the cabinet. I type in the number 0 for Inset 1 and it keeps changed to -0.1875. No matter what I try, it won't let me set Inset 1 to 0.

Any ideas?

Don posted the cabinet to the beta site and I have tracked the issue down. Seems that the corner cabinet "back" style stretchers will position off by half of the full dado depth (and have ever since their introduction). I have this listed and should be resolved for the next release. You can get around this for now by typing in half of the dado depth for inset #1 and press enter. Doing this will get it to positioned at zero.
