Easier if you make the toe kick separate.

What is normally done for a separate toe kick? Is that normally the add-on legs, whether they are hidden or visible, or do people sometimes make some sort of riser out of plywood, inexpensive lumber, etc?

A separate toe kick will make a big difference if you re using 60×60 baltic birch since you can get four 30” tall side panels out of a sheet and still have a 34” tall cabinet before the top. An integral toe kick will make panels too tall for that.

+1 I use the plastic legs . The main selling point, should there be water damage, only up to a few inches, then you only have to replace the toe kick. Also, the open space can be used to “fish” plumbing or electrical underneath.
