old work box ?


when installing. do they need to be on a stud, or can they be supported just by the DW ?

i installed a new work box when roughing in, for the under cabinet lights = it will be behind a cabinet (yes, it will be accessible from inside the cabinet). now, i am planning, or should i say "replanning" my cabinets. and i think the box will need to be moved over 6-12".

thanx
