You might consider going to an antique flea market, and adapting oldies to fit as you can most often buy something for less then the price of materials ? Even if if you buy something smaller, at least you have a reference for building what you want.

That said, the local library will have countless books on making face framed cabinets and early american furniture, as will U tube and google

Albeit HD and Lowes sells what most can afford, doesnt mean that modular cabinetry is junk, as melamines, plywoods, hardware, and methodology are not created equally in that you can build functional, high quality boxes with flawless hardware and make the “fronts” look as old as Noahs Ark
