I’m considering building new kitchen cabinets for an upcoming project, and will be converting my kitchen (and much of the rest of the house) to look as Arts & Crafts as possible. Wainscoting and the like.
But in the kitchen, I was wondering about simply building new face frames and either replacing the existing ones or adding these in front of the existing ones as a shortcut to building brand-new cabinets. I have to wonder if this is even possible structurally, or if the cheap materials used for the carcases won’t support QSWO frames, doors and door fronts.
So I’m looking for some input. Would anyone seriously consider just replacing the face frames, or would you build the whole cabinet from scratch?
I think I know the answer but thought I’d ask all the same. Lots of learning to be had in seeing why…
