The toe depth thread made me think of a question.
What counts as the overall depth of a cabinet?
On inset, the face of the cabinet typically.
On overlay, the face of the cabinet typically, even though the fronts are past that point.
I've wondered on full overlay, (whether euro or faceframe), if it should be the face of fronts that should the considered the depth of the cabinet?
Well the norm has turned to overlay cabinets and that means the cabinet depth is 24 7/8".
I did a job that was inset and when I went back after the countertops were installed it had an almost 2" overhang instead of what I consider normal, 1". The guy told me that 26" is what they do now unless notified otherwise.
I don't think you can make a full overlay or Euro box a total of 24" deep because you'll run into appliance issues.
We set our shop standard at 23 3/4 Door takes us to 24 1/2 full overlay, frameless.
Recently we have been getting prints with crap like 23 1/8” box 3/4 doors, 9/32 for hinge protrusion. Ya. Ok. Monkey see monkey do. As if the end user takes a tape to it to check.
For the last 20 years I've been at 23 3/4" case plus 13/16" for the door.
I make my standard kitchen cabinets 24" deep plus door thickness however I'll make whatever is ask for. I wouldn't consider door thickness into cabinet depth. I explain the counter overhang to the customer but counter top people are stupid. I have found three different overhangs in the same kitchen. Sometimes the counter overhangs are tapered. This is in a 2.5M house?
