I bought this kit about 3 weeks ago an tonight I had my first attempt
on some kitchen cabinet doors and boy did I get confused. On the
picture of the kit on Amazon it shows a panel door with all four
clamps being used. Well I couldn't picture using all four clamps. It
looked like I only needed two. Is the picture on Amazon showing mitre
cornered doors? I'm using a rail and stile method. Should I use all
Post the link to the Amazon picture. On the face of it, I'd expect you'd use
a pair of clamps for each rail in the door. I suppose there might be a few
doors with more than two stiles, but don't think I've ever seen any.
It's four K-bodies, 2x24 and 2x40, with the "KP block" set that is used to
hold them square to each other.
For rail and stile only two should be needed to apply pressure, although it
might be useful to use the other two as alignment aids.

You could use all four of the clamps if you wanted... leave the rails proud
of the stiles and then use the long clamps to press the rails flush with the
ends of the stiles. ;-)
About the only time I use all four clamps and the blocks is when I edge band
plywood with solid wood.
