How to learn 32mm cabinet system
« on: July 16, 2018, 04:47 PM »
Good day,

I’m an American woodworking newbie and I was wondering if anyone had any resources to point me to to learn about 32mm cabinet making? I’ve read many of the results on google but confused as to how to use the system? Are there undermount soft drawer slides that are able to use the 32mm shelf pin stuff? (Not sure how the undermounts work) I am trying to build @Timtool s system workshop at the moment and he uses all metric. So I am gaining experience with that. I would like to design a desk and built ins for our office as a next project but not sure how to do so.

Thank you for your help !
Stephan

Do a Google search on 32mm system.  There are scads of resources that will be identified.

Go to Festool’s website Knowledge and check their classes.
Look at the cabinet class that Greg Paolini offers (I am in his
September class) outside Asheville.  I attended his router
Class this past December and it was excellent.

Eric did an in depth series on YouTube specifically around the Festool LR32 system.  You can probably glean some helpful information there.  Here is the link to part one of that series:

Dave's not a very patient person but has an abundance of information on his site.  I had to read, read again, and re-read many times in order to fully grasp things and I wouldn't consider myself somebody who catches on slow.  I don't know if it's because I've never built a cabinet before and only have the concepts in my head, the website isn't as organized as it could be, isn't clear and concise in the fewest words possible, etc. but it was difficult to digest all the info and remember it ... and there's so many variations within the 32mm "system".

Good luck!!

Check out the KISS2 system manual and the Kurka Jig manual.   Both can be found on PDF online.  The Kurka jig is no longer made but the instructions are worth looking at.

@Oceans05  - your question about the 32mm System is one of the reasons we are offering books to provide clear insight that can be followed in your shop:
https://tsoproducts.com/books/the-complete-kitchen-cabinetmaker/

this is a great reference which helps you decide which method is best for your needs. You'll keep it handy in your shop.
If this book does not provide the help you are looking for, TSO will refund your money.
 
The other book we offer by Greg Paolini is full of "how-to-get-it-done" pointers but does not go into the 32mm System like Bob Lang's book.

Post what you decided and where you found what you were looking for. You are not the only one with this question [smile]

I second Hans suggestion. The two books are very well documented with plenty of pictures  [big grin]

I've attached four PDF documents regarding the 32mm system that you may find useful.
