    Hopefully a quick and easy one for you all.

    I am making a number of units (kitchen) out of MFC and will be facing them with solid oak. My question is about the joining of these two materials.

    My plan is to make the carcase with a cut edge to the MFC on the face. Then having made seperate oak facings fix to the carcase with glue and biscuits. Having never done this before is this an acceptable method or is there an easier one?

    Thanks in advance.

    Is it worth trying real Oak iron on edging

    Are you just lipping teh edges IE same width of oak as the thickness of teh board. Or are you doing proper faceframes with inset doors?

    I am planning on making 18mm thick face frames that are 45mm in width with inset doors.

    The MFC that I am getting is 15mm so I am planning on adding an extra peice between each carcase to acheive the 45mm width for the frame.

    Hope that makes sense?
