Ok folks -
Thanks to Swingman (who when you search for "Cabinets" on the newsgroups -
you'll find tons of his knowledge) for your detailed advice -- and to
Morris, Nancy and others for encouragement and "tough love."
Pulling the trigger this weekend - I'll be getting 2 sheets of A-C'ish 3/4"
alder plywood for the walls and floor, and 1 sheet A-C 1/4" for the back.
Also, I'll be getting quite a bit of solid stock for the face frame.
Question is - I talked to the little woman about Swingman's plywood
endpanel. Sounds great to me, but she's thinking beaded board! I was
thinking 1/2" thick slats of solid stock shiplap w/ a beading bit... I guess
I'd just make the standard 1/4" lip on the outside edge of the faceframe
3/4" to accomidate the shiplap?
Other than the endpanel - I think all systems are go.
If it happens, there will be pictures and maybe a narrative on Monday.
Thanks again. You guys are the best!
