Cabinet inset doors with a bead on the frame

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

Doing a kitchen design with inset doors, it is requested to have a bead on the frame of the box. Explanation; where the cut out for the door or drawer is a bead profile is on the frame of the box, see picture. Anyway to do this besides making the cabinet box custom.

There was a discussion a while back and a few solutions were found. Attached is zip with a couple of plans and libraries using two approaches I came up with.

One is to make door symbols with the frame and use them as full overlay doors- the other is to make door symbols with just a bead and use those as traditional overlay doors. If I remember correctly someone also tried a door symbol with a bead that they used as an inset. (gives an extra space between the door)

Should give you some ideas.

Clare.....Depending on how particular you are with the final outcome I'll give you what I came up with. I made a custom door and drawer with a 1/4" "no material" edge around the custom door and drawer. This left a 5/16" open area around the doors and drawers when they are placed in a cabinet. I then added a 3D P-line and attached a 1/4" bead around the face of the frame. It's a real PITA, especially if you have a lot of cabinets. The next best solution is to make a custom door/drawer with a 1/4" bead on the outside edge. This gives you a 1/16" space between the bead and face frame though, but it is by far a lot faster. I think I made a suggestion for an option for adding beaded frames to cabinets. You can add your "2 cents" to that suggestion.........The "squeaky wheel" gets greased!

Larry- you can eliminate the gap- set symbol Y origin to 13/16, cabinet front to traditional overlay with 0" overlaps.

 

Have to use false drawer for drawers or the drawer box pokes through the front, and use a two door symbol as "door panel" for two door cabinets so hardware and swing indicators are manually placed.

I have to get back to this later, sounds like fussy work to get the inset bead correct.

 

Myself I like to keep things simple.

 

The project is a large kitchen for kinda a fussy interior designer. Lets see what I can get away with, the general contractor put me on a budget. Kinda like being on a diet.

Hi, thought I would post the finish kitchen with inset doors. It isn't perfect, but it's great for the first go around with the homeowner.

 

Thanks Mark, you saved me for hours of work.

Glad it's working out for you, didn't save as much time as you think.

Are those shadows on the 3 drawer base on the right? if so something is amiss.

I had the cabinet doors and drawers correct as insets yesterday. Today when I ran the camera I didn't take a serious look at the doors and drawers, they changed themselves. Should only trust computers and programs so far.

      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 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. :-)
