We’re still not sure what we’re going to do with the two small drawer sets. The one on the left is a corner unit and the other one is the dead space between the dishwasher and the end cabinet. We may make the end cabinet larger and forego that altogether.

I plan on beading every opening in the face frame. I threw together those 4 drawer sets this afternoon and hadn’t thought much of that.

And yeah, I have been noticing how much of a difference 1/4” makes. I widened the bottom rail by 1/2” and all the dimensions in the door by 1/4” to get to what you see up there. It didn’t look like much when I did it, but the effect was noticable. I also played around with 3/8” vs 1/4” beading and that made a huge difference.

The dishwasher is driving most of this. I would halve the stiles so that they all looked uniform when butted together. But I am worried that this would leave too little support on the edges of the D/W frame. Hmm, more to think about.

Thanks for all the help, guys.
