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.

Thanks jbay, a lot of good advice, and that’s kind-of the route I am leaning towards. Yea, I could design everything to fit within the 32mm system, but the more I look at it, the more it seems like it’ll be limiting in some ways. I’m planning on using Blum hinges and drawer slides, and they make some affordable drilling jigs that look like they would be quicker, easier, and more flexibility than the Festool solution.

+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.

Thanks, that’s a couple good points too, though I would tend to lean towards metal legs. All depends on what’s available and what works best, I guess.
