Not usually stuck with the design for a cabinet, but, this one is getting me. I may be overthinking this and screwing myself up, but I am in need of some advice on the design.
I am making a custom cabinet on Tuesday for my church. We are getting a dbl oven, Kenmore Elite Stainless Steel 30’’ Double Wall Oven 4813, on Monday, so I am going to go in and build the cabinet on Tues.
It will not be your typical cabinet, made entirely out of wood, it will have a 2×3 skeleton, with drywall exterior. I will be making an opening with doors on top and bottom.
I found the opening for the oven in the specs, but I am finding that I can’t remember how high the top of the opening should be, so I can set the rest of the dimensions from it.
Also, I am thinking of making the exterior finish size to be 36” W x 27” D x 96” H. We wanted it to go to the bottom of the soffit we are going to be building later.
Also, over the drywall, I will be putting on wall board that can easily be wiped down, making it easier for the folks who will be using it to clean it.
I want to make it larger than necessary on the sides and in the back to allow for dispersion of heat, so I won’t have any issues with my finish exterior skin. Do you think this is over thinking it?
Anyway, any help would be greatly appreciated.
