Do you make your face frames flush with the cabinet inside and out?


Regarding bookshelf built-ins-

Just wondering if overhang is the norm on a 2" face frame over 3/4 ply or what.

I see that, for exposed sides obviously, that to get a face frame flush with the inside and outside of the cabinet, you can do two pieces of 3/4 ply with a 1/2 inch ply spacer in between. On a non exposed side that abuts to the wall, I assume you can line up the cabinet inside edge 2" off the wall and scribe that side of the face frame to the wall.

Or do most just leave 1.25" face frame overhang on the inside of cabinets?

Whatever you like the looks of.
Your preference.
I would probably double-up the ply.
It would be more stout, and look beefier.
The other way might look wal-mart cheap, and if you smack the frame with a tome it could be damaged easier.
