Custom Cabinets

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

Hopefully I am not asking a very obvious question but several times now, I needed to have the back of a cabinet angled but was not able to shape the cabinet according to the wall it is installed against.  I have attached a picture of what I am trying to do in this project.  I searched "custom cabinets" on the forum and in the videos but that seems to provide information on how to customize a cabinet in regards to the doors.  Does anyone have some advice or can point me in the direction where I can find info on this?  Thanks in advance!

I would like to make the cabinets according the red outline.  With this plan I am trying to match an existing kitchen that was built.

Thanks for that! I had hoped it could be done with the cabinet so that the base would line up but I guess there would be work arounds for that.  However, with my question I had hoped to kill two birds with one stone because of similar situations that I ran into before.  Any suggestions?

You can do this with Box Construction>Cabinet Corner Treatment>Clipped.  Just set the appropriate corner width.  One little downside though is that you need a cabinet on the opposite side as well to stop that corner from clipping.  It cab be a very small cabinet and you can put it on its own layer and turn the layer off, but it needs to be there.

While it's possible to do this with a cabinets using a very narrow one at the wall it tends to not be stable, the front clip comes back or the back one goes away if you sneeze. So the fastest way to get a clipped back is to set up cabinet to have clip then convert to symbol. I prefer to have that with no countertop and use a custom counter after placing. I always allow at least 1" filler or extended stile or installers will complain.

As to the Recessed Corner sink base. Here's one I made since I have done enough of these to bother.

NOTE that the back NEVER ever goes all the way into the corner (all mfg make them like the attached). image.thumb.png.1e1aa7ee070a8f5e084100e9fb4f4c88.png

Attached plan has one as shown, set to use default cabinet/door material, and another that is a block with countertop. There is also a pline of the correct outline of the cabinet.
