Door Catches Door catches can either be mounted to show on the outside of the door or the can be mo...

If you are planning to use these catches on anything but the most rigid cabinetwork it is advisable to mount them horizontally at the bottom or top of the door. If mounted vertically, opposite the hinged side of the door, any small amount of racking will change the lateral relationship between the parts and prevent the catch functioning correctly or worse.

They have been found in cultures as diverse as those of Egypt, Japan and Norway. The Romans can be credited with the invention of the metal lock and in fact developed the "warded lock" which uses the familiar ske...
  • For the sake of efficiency in smaller rooms such as child's bedrooms and guest rooms a desk dresser makes sense. Once the upper drawer of the dresser is pulled out its front can be released and will hinge down to create a flat writing surface. The hinged joint will need to be formed as shown in the drawing above, this lap type joint serves to help support the leaf when laying flat and to cover the joint when in the closed position so no large unsightly gap shows when the drawer is shut. It may be ...
