I probabaly won't do a great job of explaining this but here goes.
I am going to be installing kitchen cabinets
in an older cabin. The particular run of cabinets in question is a wall to wall run of about 13 feet. One end (the far left side) will have a 90 degree lazy susan corner cab and the other end (far right side) of the run will have a 24 inch base. There are 5 cabs in between. The floor is approximately 3/4 of an inch out over this run. The high spot is the end where the 24 inch base will be (far right side).
I know conventional methodology would be to find the high spot, set the first cab level there and shim the rest. But in this case I want to do just the opposite.
The perpendicular wall at the end of the run on the side where the corner lazy susan is (far left side) will have a stove and then another corner lazy susan on the other side of the stove. This is the low spot. What I would like to do is set the corner lazy susan (far left side) at the begining of the 13 foot run and then run to the 24 inch base at the other end (far right side). In this case I will need to scribe or undercut the bottoms of each cabinet
as i go.
I know that's a lot more work, but I am wondering if there are any "gotchyas' or "red flags" or tips or suggestions that you may have? Luckily there are no dishwashers
or anything on this run to be concerned with, just base cabs.
If I do this conventionally, and start out at the high end, by the time I get back to my stove wall I will be 3/4 of an inch too high for a knee wall that is across the room and runs parallel to the 13 foot run wall.
What complicated matters just a little bit is that my finish wall material is 1X6 tongue and groove knotty pine, running horizontally. So I want to make sure I am not only level but following the line of the paneling
I am sure I made little to no sense here but if you can provide any inisght it would be appreciated.
