Why are a lot of “high end” cabinets using 1/8″ ply for the backs and puttin in 2 extra pieces for the screw rails.
doesnt make sense.
Also I am now in the midst of a kitchen where they chose a middle quality cab.
Ply sides, cherry faces, dovetailed drawers, assembled pretty square.
But when I drilled through the floor of a base… Particle board!!!???
Where is the most likely place for water to get to any cabinet?
the floor of the sink base! esp. with holes drilled for pipes and wires.
Not a wise choice!
Looking at the whole kitchen, it would have taken Maybe 2 sheets of ply to replace all the particle board!
And no Toe kicks, the sides are all the extend to the floor! not enough support for the 1/2 ply the send for a finished toekick.
BTW they are Bertch Legacy line so if you runn into them beware of these “shortfalls”
I know Kitchen cabs are a very competitive field but this is getting rediculous!
OK I have vented now.
Any further comment?
Do not try this at home!
