Mitchell Collinsworth replied to Henry Beun's discussion 'Wall cabinet 14-16" deep'
"You could adapt the measurement of the width to 3/4 inch less than finish width. For instance a 42x16 cabinet side would be cut to 42x15 1/4 with the top and bottom cut to 15 inches. That is if you are using a typical 3/4 inch face frame."
