This is a standard type cabinet of compact design. The dimensions of the top are 72 inches by 19 and 3/4 inches.
The carcass is 60 inches by 17 inches. I used baltic birch for the shelves, back, and toe kick, knotty alder laminated MDF for the ends and doors. the doors are banded top and bottom with walnut. The face frame is walnut. I made the top out of a piece of maple butcher block from the Woodcraft store. I Ripped the 27 inch top to width, cut the ends to size from the drop and secured them with glue and 1/2 inch dowels. It is finished with teak oil. The sink drain pipe runs straight down to the crawl space where I put the trap and vent to preserve room inside the cabinet. I do not care to stagger hinges on new cabinets but the HD inspired my customer to use different hinges than planned after the face frame was done and doors were built. Other than that, this was a fun build and, other than crawling around in a very cramped crawl space to solder copper pipes, this was a fun remodel job. With a little innovation. I was able to add a kitchenette, much improving the comfort level of this 16×20 one room, with 3/4 bath, mother- in-law house.
