I am converting to frameless construction as much as possible. I am using what seems to be the most common method of making a blind corner upper or base by attaching a panel on the blind side and attaching the door to it. Does anyone have a better way to do it? I am trying to find a way I can make the cabinet without having to use my exterior material during construction. Would like to make the box with all melamine and attach the outside filler later (cherry oak or whatever). Any better unique methods out there?
From contributor B:
That can work if you hinge the door to the other side and inset the melamine panel between the top and bottom of the case so that your finished part attaches flush with the door thickness. I avoid blind corners and use a lazy susan instead because it makes corner transition easier, in my opinion. I use a 45 degree cross corner upper and a pie notched bottom cabinet.
