Make it alittle easy on yourself in the future. Make your doors oversize and cut them to fit once the carcass in done. If you want to be really accurate. Install the cabinets first, then, install the doors. Tbone has it. Even the slightest crank on a mounting screw can really move the “square” of the cabinet.

IMHO, tight tolerances like 1/64” = major headaches. Wood moves more than that and it will whether you want it to or not. I have yet to see the peice of wood or house or whatever that will be and stay within such close tolerances unless you’re a museum with really expensive evironmental controls.
