Header Molding Separation Lines on top of Cabinets

Recommended Posts

Hi, added base molding to the top of these cabinets but I am seeing the lines in-between them.  How do I make those lines to go away to reflect the way it will be installed?

Hard to tell, but from the looks of your screenshot you're not showing any moldings on the tops of those cabinets. I think what you're seeing is simply the cabinet module lines. Are you sure you set the numbers correctly? Maybe try posting the plan for a more accurate answer.

Hi, Here is a screen shot of how I added the base molding to create a header molding return look...

Still think you should post the plan but based on that screenshot I'd venture to guess that your cabinets aren't exactly snapped together.  It works fine for me...

I believe they are snapped together.

Without the plan, its all guesses, but even in your screenshot the center cabinet appears to be further forward than the other 2. Try sliding it back to the wall and see if that fixes your problem.

Try setting the horizontal offset to "0" and see if they connect. If so then Chief is not seeing the molding as touching alomg the gables. If this works but you do not want the molding to extend over the box at the front the change the material thickness to 1/16", alternatively you could set the horizontal offset to 1/16" less than the material thickness.

I think Michael is right.

That would certainly cause the problem. The plan definitely shows that the center cabinet is not tight to the wall and as such it is forward from the adjacent cabinets. Good eye Michael.

Michael was right.  The center cabinet just needed to be tight to the wall.  Thanks guys
