recessed wall cabinet bottom for light rail

Recommended Posts

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.

Hi, Nancy.  It helps if we know you are using the same software as us.  Is it Chief Premiere X11?

 

You have posted before, so maybe it is time to put your details in your signature.  Use the profile.  See mine as an example.

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.

Mark:

I explored the plan you posted and am impressed by your clever method to get a raised cabinet bottom.  I also liked your clever solution to produce an ogee curve in an island or peninsula cabinet that you posted back in October.

      Hi all any suggestions on how to adjust cabinet to angled wall.
      see image..
      note this cabinet will only be half functional from front on but the back will be chamfered to suit the wall.
      I have tried to look thru the options but nothing seems to address my requirements.
       
      thanks in advance

      I've used an older cabinet program (Cabinet Vision) for producing cabinet cut sheets for some time now. I would like to use one program start to finish to simplify things. Our company owns our own cabinet shop and is used to mass cabinet production using these cut sheets. Is there a way to export cabinet data only through Chief Architect that I can give my cabinet builders to assemble off of?

      I saw several pictures online, mostly on Houzz's website, about hidden pantry's and other rooms and I decided to try and create a few. This is a rough attempt at creating them. All are blended within the kitchen cabinets. Instead of explaining what I did and used, it would probably be best if you simply took it apart yourself. Then you'll understand. I hope. CA X9 was used. Also, what you see in the attached images will differ from what you will see when creating camera images. Feel free to send me suggestions, questions, etc. Thanks. Hope you like. :-)

      I am trying to butt an 18" deep x 20" high base (window seat) with 6" clipped corner against a 12" deep tall bookcase cabinet, but as soon as the cabinets touch, the clipped corner becomes squared. It comes back when cabinets are moved 1" apart. I tried a 1" filler, but the clip disappears then as well. How can I make this work? I also want a clipped countertop to die into the bookcase. Can this be done?
