pocket hole joinery for cabinet doors?
I'm building face frame kitchen cabinets following the approach in Udo Schmidt's book, Building Kitchen Cabinets. He relies a lot on pocket hole joinery, and so that's what I've used to assemble the face frames and attach them to the cabinets (not to mention all of the pocket holes holding the cabinet boxes together...). However, he does not suggest using pocket holes to build cabinet doors.
I've decided to go with Shaker style doors (flat panels), and I was wondering if it would be too weird to use pocket holes to build the doors. The pocket holes worked well on the face frames, which are a lot like the "frames" I'll need for each of the doors. I realize that the pocket holes would be visible when the doors are open, but supposing that I can handle that issue, is there any reason not use this approach? The doors will be relatively lightweight, and I can add a vertical support down the middle, if necessary for rigidity. I especially like the fact that the doors would not be glued together, since that makes it easy to correct for small errors (on the face frames, this saved my a lot of pain and suffering).
Any opinions on this idea would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
