Thanks for these ideas Loren.

Based on the popularity and high reviews of the 38N, I’m going to give them a shot, but I will design the face frames to only overhand the cab sides on the inside by about a quarter inch – thus the cab side will support the face frame when the opening force is transferred onto the stile (close force is trivial since they’re soft close)

I’ve personally observed that when the faceframes overhang the cab sides (on the inside) by about an inch, every time the door is opened, the compact euro hinges transfer a twisting force onto the face frame stiles, and you can see the stiles move – it’s a bit un-nerving.
