Adjust the legs to ensure the cabinet meets the line and, using a spirit level, adjust to ensure the unit is plumb and level. Continue the above method with all subsequent units and clamp together making sure all edges are flush and level.
Most manufacturers employ a service void of approximately 50mm at the back of base units and this is essential not only for plumbing and electrical services but also for scribing to the walls if necessary. To ensure that no gaps are visible where the last unit meets the wall you may need to scribe the cabinet. To do this, level the cabinet and clamp it to the adjacent one leaving it 30mm proud of the front edge, clamp the units together, set the compass to 30mm between pencil and point and run the point of the compass down the wall keeping it parallel with the pencil point. The pencil line left on the carcass will act as a guide for cutting with a jigsaw. After cutting, fit the cabinet as described above. This will leave a perfect finish to the wall.
After building the full carcass, you may apply tape to the exposed front edges which forms the basic Euro cabinet. Alternatively, you may build a ¾" solid wood face frame to cover the exposed edges thereby creating a hybrid North American traditional style cabinet. Both these full carcass designs are very popular with homeowners.
Well that is it, you are ready for the worktops, these come in a various materials, the most popular being laminate. In the next article I will be explaining how to install your worktops and appliances.
When fitting integrated appliances you will need to leave a space between cabinets. Using a straight length of wood or plinth, clamp flush to the already levelled cabinets and use this as a guide for fitting the next cabinet making sure you leave the correct space between the units and this applies to both the front and the back. This method also applies when fitting units either side of a freestanding or range cooker.
Finally, for those of you still debating whether to call in the nearest kitchen installers, I would like to offer some words of encouragement.
