And to add to that a bit, IIRC many homes in Europe do not include
kitchen cabinets. You bring your own and hang them when you move in and
you take them with you when you move out. I highly suspect that the
upper cabinets are hung on some type of cleat.
OK then, I'll change that from "kitchens across the world" to kitchens
where the kitchen cabinets are not moving in and out with the homeowners.:-)
I hope when they decide to move, they move into a home with the same
kitchen size and design as the previous home.
Sounds ridiculous to me, crazy damned Europeans.
Add Life to your Days not Days to your Life.
Easily solved. ;)
Since almost all shop built cabinet have "tack strips" incorporated into
the cabinet for both structural integrity and mounting to a wall, all
you have to do is rip both tack strips in half on a 45 degree angle.
This instantly creates both halves of the french cleat, using the exact
same amount of material as the original cabinet:
And made with fiber board that melts down when in high humidity.
If the sawdust board makers used a water proof resin or glue - it would
improve their product.
