I am trying to show a recessed wall cabinet bottom for inserting a light strip. 

I need to be able to show the bottom of the cabinet recessed up by 1 1/2" with the sides still down. The doors should cover the recess also. 

 

Nowadays I use 3/4" which is easy in CA, more than that gets tricky and exactly what it looks like depends on framed or frameless (and if frameless check with the maker to make sure you get what you want) Plan attached.

Down and dirty method....

But you then need to place you own Doors as Chief won't drop to the bottom of the Valance molding but once the door is placed in plan from the libary and copied it isn't too bad.

Likewise for the Handle/knob.

Actually If you remove the Bottom seperation the Door will come all the way down , you can then use one of the Shelves set at 1 1/2" from the bottom as the bottom of the cabinet and the molding will fill the gap , see the attached wall cabinet for settings.

      Hi,
      I was wondering if I can somehow setup spaces between door of cabinets to make a significant line between them.
       
      As you can see on the pictures, one (with that chairs) is what Chief does and spaces just disappear in render because they're too small, second one is image created via SketchUp, but I prefer Chief for modeling. 
       
      Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

      Some time back Graham, myself and a few folks played around with how to show a beaded inset cabinet in Chief.
      What were the best solutions at the time are a PIA to work with. I was in need of doing a job with either beaded inset frames or elite (which will be a bit harder and is far rarer so not here)
      I wanted some way to have a beaded inset frame that was easy to change door style on. Figured this out while driving back from client meeting.
      Plan attached has a bunch of base cabinets configured, one wall cabinet and one tall. I've also attached a library of the "doors" used as "side panel inset" to achieve the beading.
      These are 1/4" beads with a total width of 5/16"  Note that separation widths and heights need to be changed to get correct opening for doors or drawers.
       
      From there you are on your own so open the DBX to see what's going on. Hope you like it, I'm pleased as punch
      Ran a quick rt while checking things-looks like I'll need some hardware with altered origins so they don't float.
       
      Note that these will use the default door, the top (A) drawers use default, the larger B drawers are set individually so either clear or specify those. Leave the beading untouched.
      Discovered that the wall cabinet in the current plan is not set as a door but as a side panel inset. Either correct that your self of use the newly attached BeadInsetPlan_X12.
      Changing to wider combined cabinets involves selecting "layout" vertical or horizontal and splitting. Avoid messing with the beads. Bit tricky, always use a test cabinet.

      Sorry folks, I am new to this forum and I deleted my post by accident while trying to respond.
       
      I am trying to make a 24" wide pantry cabinet with full width roll out trays, but when I have double doors it makes it look like 2 rollout trays, one for each door side. Is there a workaround? When it's a single 24" door the rollout tray comes out perfectly, but I need a double door.
       
      This time I added the plan.

      I'm sure this has been discussed, but I can't find anything specific that answers this question.
       
      I'm trying to create a simple vanity with two drawers and an open shelf underneath (see inspiration image of "vanity").  I simply can't figure out a way/remember how to add a shelf other than by using the shelf command. While this works visually, it treats it as a separate part of the vanity, thereby creating two separate pieces.  In the Working Plan and Kitchen and Bath View plans, the shelf shows up on top of the sink while the 3d view shows the shelf in the correct place!  I guess maybe it's, in part, a layers thing?
       
      I know there has to be a better way of doing this.  What am I missing/forgetting?

      Good afternoon,
      I am trying to design a kitchen but am having issues with both lower and upper cabinets that are convex.  I understand using the different door styles for the front, but how do I make the back of the cabinets fit?
