Base cabinet flatness
 
2 Attachment(s)
i didn't want to jack bluebsh's thread. but i am having an issue somewhat like his.

i am setting the faces as close as can be, they line up well enough.
but, the cabinet box is way high in the back, about 1/8". how does a guy level the run of cabinets if the boxs are not flat ? i guess i could plane them flat(er)

A level line should have been established on the back wall, then you measure down to find the high spot in the floor.
A new line is set level using that high point as a reference mark.
Cabinets get screwed to the back wall first then shimmed in the front to set them level.
A self leveling lazar level works great for this job.

if i screwed them to the wall individually, idk if i even could get the faces to line up. though i did not try that.

Easy to line them up if you use a set of clamps like this.

Lines them up in two directions and acts as a drill guide.
A whole lot easier to also install then as a unit, not one at a time.
