Title: European Cabinet Hardware Supplier
Post by: topcat on August 10, 2017, 05:18 PM
I'm wanting to assemble a few closet organizers and in the past I've just bought them from companies like EasyClosets.com

With all the tools I've collected over the years it's just outright silly for me to pay someone for these 2 small closets I want to build out. I'm looking for the locking dowels and cam connectors specifically. I see them on Amazon but I'm sure there is a better place to get them. I'll probably do more jobs like this in the future so I'd appreciate getting suggestions on good suppliers as well as recommendations on premium connectors.

I've considered using the new Festool Domino connectors but I'm not sure its cost effective.

Thanks for your input.

Like Ron says, A. H. Turf. They stock everything. I just ordered a bunch of Blum stuff and received it 3 days later. Shipping is pretty reasonable considering how much Blum slides weigh.

It's hard to beat EC on price because of the sheer volume they handle.

They only way it becomes cheaper is for you to value your time at zero.  Which you can do, saving cash flow.  I'd be curious to know how much your savings are after acquiring the melamine, edgebanding, connectors , shelf pins and hanging rail ?  I looked into a couple of years ago and the only way we were cheaper was to value or time at around minimum wage.

I think if you have a big edgebander, line borer or CNC you could get close. 

Richelieu has the connectors you're looking for also.
