Thanks for reading, and have a great weekend! Please feel free to reach out in this thread if you have questions, comments, or feedback related to this update.


Wow team. These are some impressive updates, great work. Will be testing some of these this week. Thank you.


@NatalieSturdy I noticed this says that there was a “bug fix for overlapping hinge and shelf pin holes on standard cabinets”. However, I just generated some cabinets, and they appear to still be drilling out full-depth holes where the hinges go.

Was this fixed, or is there a regression? I only ask because I just had to fill the door hinge holes manually on my first 3 cabinets, and I assumed the fix happened after I cut those panels out. But I’m still seeing the bug with a brand new cabinet.

Hey @PhilDejarnett

Thank you for reaching out! The card that I was referencing in this original post as “bug fix for overlapping hinge and shelf pin holes on standard cabinets” resolved an issue where we had two duplicate holes in the same places.

We have a card that is currently in progress that should resolve the issue you’re having. You can keep track of the progress of this new card in the Easel Cabinetmaker Updates - I’ll be sharing this week’s (and last week’s) update shortly!
