Do I need a base?

941 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  KC_Jones

I'm building a lower cabinet system. And upper bookcase system. The lower system will have a top and bottom featuring a red oak 1 X 10. So do I need a base for the lower cabinet system when it is consisted of one long piece rather than separate cabinet systems? I understand the floor might not be level but couldn't I just shim the floor underneath the lower one by 10.

I would still do the base.....having built a few cabinets like want the books up off the floor a few inches. If you mop the floor.....water could get on the books.
