Buy a dowel pin the size of the hole in the cabnet then use carpenters glue to glue the dowel pin in place where the old hole was make sure it is a good tight fit. Next saw off the dowel pin and let set over night then drill a strating hole in the dowel pin and reinstall the door works like a chanp. Hope this helps.

I took off all of my old hardware on my kitchen cabinets. I cleaned them really well and want to put the new handles on. The old handles were bigger and now you can see where the old handles were.


You don't mention what you are applying the stain to. did you fill it with something? for a wood species, it is best to make sawdust by sanding the same type of wood as the cabinet. mixed with a bit of glue it creates a custom wood filler close to the color of the wood. try staining with a cotton swab, over and over till it blends. Now if you don't have the same color stain that will oblige you to make a custom stain by mixing more red or yellowish stains. the is another way, if you can find a wax filler stick the same color as the cabinet, though using the crayon is not a fix, melting the wax into the hole might do the job, remove extra with a blade without scratching surface around. good luck

How to fix stripped screw holes in wood


Over time, screws in wood become loose, such as in a cabinet door, and no longer tighten. This is because the threads in the wood have stripped out. The solution is easy: Obtain toothpicks and wood glue. Coat a toothpick with glue, and insert into the stripped out hole. Keep inserting coated toothpicks until you have to use a hammer to lightly tap the last toothpick in. Allow the glue to dry overnight. After drying, cut the toothpicks off flush with the wood using a small knife. You now have a new area to re-insert the screw.

Sink Cabinet Replacement Bottom


IF your sink cabinet bottom is water damaged and in need of a replacement, this video gives step-by-step how to information for fixing it. This video was created by a cabinet professional who specializes in fixing Formica kitchen cabinets.

It is very informative for the person who likes to do it yourself" when it comes to repairing things around the home.



Tools and materials needed:

Saber saw
Diagonal cutters
Hammer
New sink cabinet bottom
Caulking
Caulk gun
Clorox Bleach
Three Support Struts
L-brackets
Finish nails

How to do the Repair:

Take the doors of the kitchen or bathroom cabinet off.

Remove the water damaged sink bottom by cutting it in half from front to back. You may need to use the hammer at this point. Just be extremely careful to not damage the plumbing.

Break off the staples with the diagonal cutters.

Clean the mold with the Clorox Bleach.

Install the struts designed to support the new sink cabinet bottom. Use L-brackets if necessary for attaching the center piece.

Install the new sink cabinet bottom replacement board. Attach it with finish nails.

Clean the inside of the kitchen or bathroom vanity cabinet.

Caulk all interior areas of the sink cabinet bottom.

Replace the doors.

Every sink cabinet is built differently. Make sure to examine how the cupboard was built to determine the best method for replacing the bottom of the cabinet. If you have a center style, you will need to cut it out and reinstall it using L-brackets.

What are the different types of cabinet doors?


wikipedia provides a good explanation, quoted below:
Frames
. In the U.S. solid wood frame and panel construction, using either mortise and tenon or cope and stick jointed frames, is traditional, with maple, cherry, oak, birch, and hickory among the most commonly used species. Mortise-and-tenon frames, with their greater strength and permanence, are more costly to produce and less commonly used as compared to cope-and-stick frames. As an alternative, miter joint frames, which may be identifiable by face-surface relief that follows continuously around the frame, have become popular. Miter-jointed frames typically employ embedded metal fasteners to secure frames elements (stiles and rails) cut at a 45 angle. Captured within frames, panels may be either solid or veneered engineered wood (either particle board or medium density fiberboard). Laminates, including those designed to resemble hardwood, can typically be identified by a more rounded appearance associated with the minimum bending radii necessarily entailed by the manufacturing process of applying laminate to an underlying substrate. By comparison, solid surfaces, and solid hardwoods in particular, can be milled with more sharply defined corners, edges, or grooves on either a panel or frame.
  • Panels. Panels used in frame-and-panel kitchen cabinet doors may be fashioned either of solid wood or covered by paint, veneer, or laminate in which case they are fashioned of engineered wood. The panels are typically not fastened with glue or nails but rather "float" within the frame to accommodate seasonal expansion or contraction of the wood frame.
  • Solid-door construction. Doors may be fabricated of solid material, either engineered wood (particle board or medium-density fiberboard, but not typically plywood) or solid wood. Engineered wood panels may either be used as slabs or may be shaped to resemble frame-and-panel construction. In either case, engineered wood panels are generally painted, veneered, or laminated. Solid wood panels are typically formed of multiple boards of the selected wood species, jointed together using glue and may either be painted or finished. Solid wood construction offers the possibility of refinishing in case of damage or wear.
  • Decorative panels. Cabinet doors panels can be used decoratively on cabinet sides, where exposed, for a more finished appearance.
  • Glass door construction options. Doors may have glass windows constructed of muntins and mullions holding glass panels (as in exterior windows). Other designs either mimic the divided-light look of muntins and mullions with overlays, or may dispense with them altogether. Cabinets using glass doors sometimes use glass shelves and interior lighting from the top of a cabinet. A glass shelf allows light to reach throughout a cabinet. For a special display effect, the interior rear of a cabinet may be covered with a mirrors to further distribute light.

The belt attached to the blower wheel on my Whirlpool Cabrio dryer has come off. How do I reattach it?


Unplug the power cord of the Whirlpool dryer from the electrical outlet before installing a new belt. Remove the lint filter from underneath the lint filter cover. 2 Unfasten the screws underneath the lint filter cover with a screwdriver, setting the screws in a safe place. Slide a putty knife between the dryer top and the cabinet near the front, lifting up on the knife to detach the top from the plastic clips on the cabinet.3 Flip the dryer top back against the wall so it is resting on the rear hinges. Locate the screws on the inside of the upper front panel near the top.4 Unfasten the screws on the inside of the upper front panel with a screwdriver. Lift the panel up off the metal clips on the front of the dryer cabinet. 5 Unplug the door switch connector from the back of the upper front panel by hand, setting the panel out of the way. Slide the putty knife between the lower front panel and the dryer cabinet, pulling the knife away from the cabinet to detach the panel from the plastic clips on the cabinet.6 Place a couple of wood blocks under the lip of the dryer drum to hold it in place. Locate the idler arm near the motor at the base of the dryer.7 Move the idler arm forward to relieve the tension on the belt. Take the belt off the motor and idler arm pulleys, lifting the drum up and sliding the belt off the drum.8 Install a new belt around the dryer drum, looping it over the idler arm and around the motor pulley. Move the idler arm back into position to add tension to the new belt.9 Remove the wood blocks from underneath the lip of the dryer drum. Plug the door switch connector into the back of the upper front panel by hand.10 Slide the upper front panel over the metal clips on the front of the dryer cabinet, securing the top of the panel with screws. Fasten the lower front panel to the front of the dryer cabinet, pressing the panel onto the plastic clips by hand.11 Flip the dryer top back down onto the top of the cabinet, pressing down to secure the top to the plastic clips on the cabinet. Fasten the screws underneath the lint filter cover with a screwdriver.12 Slide the lint filter back under the lint filter cover by hand. Plug the power cord of the Whirlpool dryer into the electrical outlet.

    MOISTURE AND HEAT ESCAPE FROM DOOR SIDES CAUSING PROBLEMS WITH ADJOINING CABINET DOORS. WHAT IS CAUSING THE CONDENSATION / MOISYURE LEAK?


    Unfortunately, dishwasher generate a lot of heat and water vapor. Some manufactures are now including a pressure sensitive mylar / aluminum strip to be attached above the door under the counter to prevent water vapor and or heat damage to wood or composition wood counter tops. However if water vapor is seeping out from the side of the door and causing damage to the adjacent cabinets woodwaork, the dishwasher door gasket may be faulty. Since this might be the problem, it would appear that your dishwasher is used a lot or getting old. New gasket is about $20. If the door closes and there appears to be a lot of play in the closed door,the latch may be in need of adjusting if possible. That is, even thought closed and operational, the seal is not tight and the dishwasher is running without having a tight seal on the sides. If you have a stone counter top, any water vapor / heat escaping from the top would not be apparent since stone is not damaged by the heat or water vapor, but the adjacent wood cabinets are.
