As for the toe kick – I don’t think you can reduce it, as it’s designed by functionality more than visual. from what I’m getting you’re planing on having the bottom shelf at the level of the top of the bottom rail? why not leave it on top of the toe kick, and have the rail act as a lip to it? the only downside is that you can’t slide anything out, but will have to pick it up and out – but you’ll gain those extra 2” for storage. may or may not work for you.

anything else goes to visual and preference, make the drawers the size that looks and works best for YOU – that’s what custom work is all about. if you tall items that won’t fit in a 5” drawer – make them 6” , but if those look too tall for you – make them 5” ;). same for the rail/stile components.

make it all work for YOU since this is why you’re building it to begin with isnt it?
