If you are going to make your face frame in one piece I would scribe and cut your bottom board first to fit the against the floor. Then I would make a preassembled face frame using this board. I have always used dowels but got a pockect hole jig and have started using that now. It is a strongger joint (I still glue joint as well as screw), assembly is faster and on large face frames like yours and you do not have the problem of clamping. After your face frame is assembled you can glue and nail it on your cabinet. Good luck on your cabinet.

God Bless
