I vote for the face frame first, after all is said and done it is the face frame that defines the cabinet in my little world. I layout and measure by hand and eye, and the eyes are not as good as they once were. When trying to face frame a carcass even small errors in measurement or cut are right out front for me to see every time.

That said, the face frame (if face frame), the carcass, the doors and drawers (adjusted to fit).

That allowing that silly millimeter extra is a very good piece of advice. Let’s just leave it that I know about tight drawers.
