Topic tags/keywords: question

I saw this mud cabinet project:
and posed a few questions there as well as directly to the author
but have not received any replies, so was wondering if
the more experienced could give a few thoughts on the breakdown
of parts, joinery, levelling and fixing to floor/wall etc. ?

I want to make a couple of open back cabinets with no floor i.e. verticals
will be like in the mud cabinet above with euro hinge doors on one cabinet
and sliding doors on the other. I also have additional
constraints that there is water heating in floor (can’t drill everywhere) and
electricals/wiring in concrete ceiling above (can’t drill everywhere).
Since there is water heating in floor over insulation, the floor is effectively
“floating”, so I’m also worried about “sinking” of the cabinet if full of books
etc., so any fixing of the verticals to the wall needs to be done in a way that the cabinet can
move down a little just in case.

It looks to be made like normal cabinets, the open bottoms are just a 4 sided box instead of a 5 sided box.
