Kitchen cabinets

Question

I'm looking at building kitchen cabinets. Would they be similar to your corner cabinet plans or is there a difference in the case construction?

Answer

The design of kitchen cabinets is dependent on your choice of hinges. With a face frame (the style used in the corner cabinet plans) the doors can be flush with the frame or overlap them. Also, with a face frame you can buy european hinges, which are hidden from the front and overlap the face frame in three different ways: 1/4", 1/2" or a full overlap of 5/8".

Without a face frame, you are limited to the euro style of only full- or half-lap hinges. I really like the euro style hinges because they can be adjusted three ways: up or down, in or out, and sideways.
