Hi. I am going to build a base cabinet with upper shelving for someone. I have a question about building the base cabinets. The person has two rolling file cabinets about 30” h x 30” w. For a total of 60” w, combined. He would like the file cabinets to sit on the floor with the base cabinet built around them; so he can just roll them in and out if need be. This would mean that I would have to build the base cabinets without a bottom.
I am thinking that I would build two boxes, join them together, and fix them to the wall studs, then add the cabinet top. I would include a faceframe as well.
I’ve built cabinets before but have never built them without a base. My concern is that the sides could eventually pinch inwards or outwards over time even though they will be attached to the wall studs and have a faceframe. I hope this isn’t too confusing. Any advice would be helpful.
