Thumbs down backsplash against wood cabinet

Do I have to put hardiboard on the backsplash if it is going against wood cabinet, can I just tile on the side of cabinet? I have hardiboard over the sheetrock part of backsplash.......My first countertop.....Valeri

Hi Valeri, you could have just stuck the tile to the drywall no Hardi needed. I suppose if it's a small area on the cabinet you could stick the tiles with some liquid nails

You might consider a Polyurethane glue to stick to your cabinets, just a second option... not the best, but should work

I would recommend this product:

PL® Premium is a polyurethane adhesive that provides superior results and is safer to use. PL® Premium generates three times the power of traditional construction adhesives. It may be used inside or outside and will last as long as the surfaces it joins together.

I used it to bond together 700+ brick edgers to edge my planter boxes and driveway outside. That was over 6 years ago, and they haven't move a bit or broke bond.
