This is one of the more common base cabinets designs in a kitchen. It has one wide drawer at the top and two doors below that open to an adjustable shelf. This particular cabinet is a frameless, or European style, cabinet which basically means that there is no face frame. This allows you to better utilize the space in the carcass. The carcass is made of 3/4″ pre-finished maple plywood from Purebond and while I decided to make all my own carcasses for the flip house kitchen, the doors were purchased from Rockler Woodworking. The doors and face of the cabinets were painted Night Blooming Jasmine from Behr.
