Here is what I have got, it’s not wood but I trust you guys for help. I am going to build a sweet outdoor kitchen and looking at line drawings etc.. from the double door manufacturer, I see a potential problem. After I install my concrete board and stone/mortar I will not have enough ledge left on the cabinet frame to secure it to a metal stud. What I am wanting is to install the veneer stone and then have the lip of the face frame cover the exposed ends of the stone. What do you suggest? I know this is not wood related but I trust the members opinions here. I took the line drawing the company sent me and sketched it up to exact specifications with Sketchup. The only other option would be to start my stone around the door and work out to the corners. It will work but not as clean of a look.

Are the yellow pieces in the drawings sheet metal? If that’s the case, I would just use a metal drip edge at the top before stone is set. Then screw on temporary straight edges for the stone to lay up against for the straightest line. Then use Azek or comparable procuct to make the jamb. You can glue with urethane adhesive and screw and plug the jamb, and then treat it like it was a normal wood set up. If not familiar with Azek, it’s a PVC material with dimensional sizes like lumber. Your local lumber yard will probably have it in stock. Good Luck.
