Topic tags/keywords: question

I am building my first kitchen cabinets.

I plan to have 2” stiles for my face frame, but the bottom rail of the wall cabinet will be 2 1/2” wide so I can have counter lighting under the cabinets.

The doors will have a 1/2” lap.

If I keep the reveal equal around the doors, that means the doors will have a wider lap across the bottom.

Is this normal, or is it done some other way?

i believe the bottom rail should be a bit wider ,should look heavier . so the 1/2” overlap on your doors should be consistant all the way around.

I loved this face frame cabinet design very much. It’s so beautiful. Great work. Everything is arranged very neatly without dropping any facility kitchen design companies . I really loved your work. I would like to view more like this and I hope that I can find it here.

I think Probably the best approach is to have a trim carpenter fit new face frames on the cabinets. You would likely need new doors and hardware. The problem with trying to purchase replacement frames to fit your cabinets is the variation in cabinet dimensions Thesis Writing Help UK even if you buy from the original manufacture
