Working on design for kitchen cabs -- hoping to get some advice from the
One question I am struggling with now deals with heavy counter tops (aka
stone / granite /
marble) on frameless cabinets. Is there an upper limit on
the width of the cabinet (for support reasons) Would it make sense to make
a 36" wide cabinet with no center stile ? what about 30"
Also whats the popular vote ? Do most of you make the base of the cabinet
seperate from the cabinet itself? I have seen it done either way, some make
a base of 1x4 and the put cabinet boxes on top, others make the base /
toekick into each cabinet. Seems to me that if I build an integtral toe
kick I need sheet material 34.5" tall while if I make a seperate base I only
need sheet material 31.5" (Assuming 3" toe kick). The difference between
31.5" and 34.5" is getting an extra two sides (base cabinets) from a 4'x8'
Any sage advice ?
