Dimension Drawings

Jason Member


We are just getting underway with manufacturing our own cabinet boxes. Where can I find dimension details for dowel frameless construction for all standard size cabinet boxes? I'm having trouble finding that information without getting into software that is way more than we need at this point. Any help would be appreciated.

There's a Blum book that has all the standard dimensions of classic Euro boxes.

True 32 has a American version with a few minor modifications.

Who did the work shown on the website, someone drew all that work ?

Speaking of the web site, I hope that is not you in the hand plane GIF in your custom cabinetry tab. Stroking the wood that many times with no shavings coming out of the hand plane is odd, but hitting reverse grain and leaving a curl stuck on the wood mid stroke is something I would not use to represent my hand skills and knowledge of wood grain!

I use a calculator.. Can't get much easier when building euro boxes, If you built all that stuff on the website I'm sure you already
know that

I'm glad you are all so in to what's on the website. For the cover, that kitchen was done from Showplace Wood Products which is a line that I'm a dealer for. We built the bunk beds in our shop and yes we did all the drawings. Some other things in there like the guy with the plane is funny and will be coming out once we meet with our website designer who just put things in to get a site up and running. Closet and cabinet panels to this point we have been sourcing out to a company that has c&c and now we are set up in our shop to start making our own and my partner is drawing all these panels up on a cad program. I can't believe there isn't a program that has all the dimension drawings for standard frameless cabinetry.

There are plenty of programs out there that do that, They just cost money.

"I can't believe there isn't a program that has all the dimension drawings"

Either buy software, or google Blum Pearls booklet and figure it out. I really dont think there is a book written that spells it all out, but I could be wrong.

Sorry to have to bring up the Website, I am glad you responded, Most all of Us here are a bit touchy about using others photos to sell work, I once opened up my daily woodweb to find a guy who had literally copied all of his photos from my website, he was in the northwest and probably thought no one would notice, the (In my opinion) right thing to do is note the cabinet supplier and state "Installed By" over selling work intentionally or not can lead to disastrous results for all involved.

on another note i use a simple box generation program called cabinetpartspro cost 250.00 and generates decent code once dialed in with parameters needed.

James, I didn't ask him to put anything on there that wasn't ours other than some generic closet system pics. He got that up and we haven't taken any time to get back with him to do anything with it. I can appreciate that though and it will be taken care of. Thanks for the information.

  • WOODWEB is a professional industrial woodworking site. Hobbyist and homeowner woodworking questions are inappropriate.
  • Messages should be kept reasonably short and on topic, relating to the focus of the forum. Responses should relate to the original question.
  • A valid email return address must be included with each message.
  • Advertising is inappropriate. The only exceptions are the Classified Ads Exchange, Machinery Exchange, Lumber Exchange, and Job Opportunities and Services Exchange. When posting listings in these areas, review the posting instructions carefully.
  • Subject lines may be edited for length and clarity.

  • Messages requesting private responses will be removed - Forums are designed to provide information and assistance for all of our visitors. Private response requests are appropriate at WOODWEB's Exchanges and Job Opportunities and Services.
  • Messages that accuse businesses or individuals of alleged negative actions or behavior are inappropriate since WOODWEB is unable to verify or substantiate the claims.
  • Posts with the intent of soliciting answers to surveys are not appropriate. Contact WOODWEB for more information on initiating a survey.
  • Excessive forum participation by an individual upsets the balance of a healthy forum atmosphere. Individuals who excessively post responses containing marginal content will be considered repeat forum abusers.
  • Responses that initiate or support inappropriate and off-topic discussion of general politics detract from the professional woodworking focus of WOODWEB, and will be removed.
  • Participants are encouraged to use their real name when posting. Intentionally using another persons name is prohibited, and posts of this nature will be removed at WOODWEB's discretion.

    WOODWEB's forums are a highly regarded resource for professional woodworkers. Messages and responses that are crafted in a professional and civil manner strengthen this resource. Messages that do not reflect a professional tone reduce the value of our forums.

    Messages are inappropriate when their content: is deemed libelous in nature or is based on rumor, fails to meet basic standards of decorum, contains blatant advertising or inappropriate emphasis on self promotion (return to top).

    Libel:   Posts which defame an individual or organization, or employ a tone which can be viewed as malicious in nature. Words, pictures, or cartoons which expose a person or organization to public hatred, shame, disgrace, or ridicule, or induce an ill opinion of a person or organization, are libelous.

    Improper Decorum:   Posts which are profane, inciting, disrespectful or uncivil in tone, or maliciously worded. This also includes the venting of unsubstantiated opinions. Such messages do little to illuminate a given topic, and often have the opposite effect. Constructive criticism is acceptable (return to top).

    Advertising:   The purpose of WOODWEB Forums is to provide answers, not an advertising venue. Companies participating in a Forum discussion should provide specific answers to posted questions. WOODWEB suggests that businesses include an appropriately crafted signature in order to identify their company. A well meaning post that seems to be on-topic but contains a product reference may do your business more harm than good in the Forum environment. Forum users may perceive your references to specific products as unsolicited advertising (spam) and consciously avoid your web site or services. A well-crafted signature is an appropriate way to advertise your services that will not offend potential customers. Signatures should be limited to 4-6 lines, and may contain information that identifies the type of business you're in, your URL and email address (return to top).

    Repeated Forum Abuse: Forum participants who repeatedly fail to follow WOODWEB's Forum Guidelines may encounter difficulty when attempting to post messages.

    There are often situations when the original message asks for opinions: "What is the best widget for my type of shop?". To a certain extent, the person posting the message is responsible for including specific questions within the message. An open ended question (like the one above) invites responses that may read as sales pitches. WOODWEB suggests that companies responding to such a question provide detailed and substantive replies rather than responses that read as a one-sided product promotion. It has been WOODWEB's experience that substantive responses are held in higher regard by our readers (return to top).

    The staff of WOODWEB assume no responsibility for the accuracy, content, or outcome of any posting transmitted at WOODWEB's Message Boards. Participants should undertake the use of machinery, materials and methods discussed at WOODWEB's Message Boards after considerate evaluation, and at their own risk.
