I've started building the base cabinet for SWMBO's kitchen bookcase project.
The base cabinet will be 33" wide by 32" tall, with an ~50" book case on
top. I'm using 3/4"
(nominal) Poplar plywood for the cabinet boxes and book cases. The base
cabinet doors will be
shaker style overlay doors, like these (just doors, no drawers)
I've been reading about face frame widths and 2" seems to be a common size.
I know nothing
about the Euro style concealed hinges, but I assume that I need to factor
them into the face
frame and door design. The plan was to use 3/4" (actual) poplar for the face
frames and doors.
Everything will eventually be painted.
I'm looking for advice, sources, steps, etc. regarding the hinges and face
frames. This is one of
those "I don't know what I don't know" situations.
Thanks for any and all input.
Regarding the face frames, you need to consider how much overlay you intend
to have on the doors. That will affect your choice of hinge too as there
are various overlays available in hinges..
I always make my door overlay 1/2". That means that if two adjacent doors
hinge on the same stile, 1" of the face frame will be covered. If your face
frames are 2", the reveal will be 1". If there are NOT two adjacent doors
hinge on the same stile, the reveal would be 1.5".
