Like the base cabinet, the
upper cabinet consists of a plywood
carcass with solid wood
facing, but it differs from the
base cabinet in these important
ways: Its face frame has
a bottom rail, its door rails are
the same width, and its face
frame and side panel(s) extend
beyond the carcass to create
a valence for under-cabinet
lighting (Photo, page 38; Fig
F and Cutting List, page 40).
Finally, a 1/4” plywood skin
of the same species as the facing
covers the bottom of the
carcass. Finished the same
as the rest of the cabinet, this
skin is scribed to the wall and
attached with construction
adhesive and pin nails after the
cabinet is installed.
