Now that I’ve got my plywood, I’m building two cabinets for my kitchen. The walls are plaster and very wavy. The same goes for the ceiling. (These are made to match the existing cabinets with no soffit).
Any recommendations how to make this slightly less painful? I was thinking of hanging the cabinets using a cleat system on the top. I can hit at least two studs.
Because the walls are so wacked, I assume the boxes will need to mounted away from the walls by 1/2″-3/4″.
For the face frame, I was thinking of leaving the longest piece (with the worst wall) for last and installing once everything else was set. Fortunately, the second cabinet is for above a wall mounted microwave, so the scribed line will be pretty sort. Is a back bevel a good idea for the pieces that need the scribe?
The existing cabinets have a cove molding where they meet the ceiling, so I’m hoping this will take care of any gaps.
Sorry for the long post. I can cut boards square, but I’ve got everything to learn about hanging cabinets!
I would greatly appreciate any advice or tips.
