These are some Mudroom cabinets I recently finished. The hallway is kinda narrow, so getting a good picture was difficult. The unit is 8’ wide and 9’ tall. The fourth picture is what the homeowner showed me and told me she wanted.

Excellent job. I like yours better, the hidden hinges make it much cleaner.

thewoodmaster, luckily I stumbled onto your project as I need to do something similar
and hopefully you wouldn’t mind giving a few more details and maybe a pointer for
how I should go about building my cabinets ;)

Could you please give some more info about:
(a)the “feet” under the brown/wood color shelf, the shelf and the
cabinet parts which are open / with doors above (what parts are used, how they are fixed
together and to the floor/wall and whether that is a face frame in the front)

For my cabinets, I have the following situation and requirements:
(a)Tiles on floor with hydronic heating – can’t drill /screw to floor in some places
(b)Due to (a) and associate thermal insulation, the floor is effectively floating i.e.
I’m thinking if the cabinet is to be fixed to the brick wall, it needs to be done
with some sort of slots in case loading in cabinet is high, so the cabinet can still move
(c)ceiling is concrete with electricals and other cabling in places, so I can’t
fix cabinet everywhere I want.
(d)Requirements – open back, no bottom (same as your cabinets)

Hope you don’t mind the questions ;)

One thing I forgot – the “feet” in your cabinet – did you level each one and then go
on from there (I’m presuming the legs under the “shelf” are separate pieces)
