Mike pm me your phone number Ill be happy to go over some tips I have on mistakes. I used to use 3/4 all the time then I took a class and found that 1/2 inch is fine and is even preferred for upper cabinets. I don’t use prefinished because I use a veneer on the box. I like birch just fine but I prefer cherry so I buy the Rolls of veneer and use it with solid cherry face frames and doors. I have also done lots of black walnut work. Some where here I have the video that the teacher put out a few years ago about using 1/2 inch. I know most of us would have used 3/4 on all our cabinets. But there really is no great reason top do that. The box is like a drum. On the back I use 1/2 inch on all my cabinets even the base cabinets they have never failed once.
