Wall cabinet --with a drawer?


The plan is for a basic 12" deep (18-24" tall) wall cabinet to be mounted low (30" AFF?) under a shelf.

In the bathroom the drawer at the TOP of the cabinets can hold all sorts
of commonly found bathroom junk and the cab below would hold towels.

Any ideas where to find such already in a box?
Finish would probably be basic white.

Thanks

Don't know what 30" AFF stands for but you are not going to get much stuff in a cabinet 12" deep with a drawer on top and 18-24" tall.
I doubt that you will find anything like that available premade.

AFF= Above Finished Floor. I highly doubt that you will find something like that readily available. That is more of a custom built item. Most cabinet manufacturers will build custom units to spec, but they are pricey.

Learned something today.Above finished Floor.I have been in the trades for 40 years and just see to many things abbreviated these days.Saw a post on another forum today and it said"windows closing".Thought it was a problem with the windows in their house and found out it was a problem with the Windows operating system.This was on a contractors board.You can see how this may confuse us old guys.

Check Rocklers for unusual hardware. But you may have to make your own slide/guide/stop for custom drawers/doors/box. Rather than a cabinet, think more toward furniture, jewelry box, toy house.

If you just want to retrofit store bought wall cabinet, it may become inconvenient to use. Open the door - take out the drawer - close the door.

If you use the cabinet, make sure you have plenty of clearance under the countertop for door to open.
