frameless inset cabinets3/19
I have a designer that wants frameless inset cabinets made from baltic birch plywood. He likes the look of the plywood edge. I'm concerned about the reveals around doors staying consistent and straight. Has anyone done this?
I think you may need to build full overlay boxes and doors and then frame them with the plywood flush to the doors.
Basically it just has no edge banding,
I meant like this; build your boxes the way your set up to and then attach a BB frame around. Works with either concealed or butt hinges but with the butts you have to use short screws so I'd avoid it

Goofy question Mark. What font is that in your drawing?
Stylus BT- old ACAD, but then, I'm a freaking dinosaur......
Thanks Mark. We were thinking of doing something like that. Have you built this way and if so were there any hidden issues?
Mark, that is an elegant and simple solution and to be applauded because it is consistent with system construction. Thanks for the inspiration.
I am having our own kitchen built right now and we have done something similar. Although our cabinets are face frame I asked our cabinet maker to add the finished end to extend forward flush with the door face. Likewise, the light rail is positioned similarly.
Actually our kitchen job is on hold due to COVID19. One day from templating the counter tops.
Has the virus affected your work?
Stay safe everyone.
Looks nice Dennis.
Check out some "apple ply". Much higher quality ply. I believe it's maple.
Used this method of construction to build cabinets with a beading surrounding the cabs that had to be mitered on the corners and vertical "stiles" had to be point mitered into the horizontal "rails" that separated the doors and boxes
