: My first instinct when i hear "cabinets" is kitchen/bath. "furniture"
: would lead me to dressers and hutches.
You are welcome to your instincts, but I don't share them.
The terms "cabinetry" and "cabinetmaker" are quite often used with
regard to fine furniture. I would imagine it's not a stretch to think
that cabinetmakers make...well...cabinets.
Perhaps you disagree.
: Regardless, are you saying
: that dovetails can be used to attack face frames to boxes or sides to
: backs, etc?
;^) No, although I don't approach my cabinetmaking with a high level
of violence ;^)
Neither am I saying one would *attach* face frames to boxes, or
sides to backs, using dovetail joints.
Nor have I ever said it. Or even implied it, much less ever thought
of doing it.
You are entirely welcome.
