Unless you re going to manufacture standard size boxes for everything there is no need to use the 32mm system.

That being said, you can adopt parts of the system to the cabinets you build.
Such as setting your shelf holes back 37mm so that you can utilize them for hinges, and guides.
Where you start your holes makes a difference on your reveals for the doors so there are lessons to learn there.

You can check out the KissII system that waho6o9 mentioned. You can still standardize a lot of the build.

I ve built hundreds of boxes, I mount the doors with jigs and don t use the shelf holes. I mount the drawer guides with jigs and don t use the holes for them either. Since 90% of all the boxes I build are different, I don t bother with the 32mm system other than my shelf hole boring machine drills shelf holes 32mm apart. I don t always want holes at the very bottom or tops of the cabinets.

So much more on the subject that you just can t relay here in the forum. Best bet is just to learn about as much about it as you can, and then adapt your methods to fit what you want to do.

jbay- great advice- To survive in a small independent environment, I concur with using both english and metric, because of your advice and my very similar methods- it works.
