Cabinet Types

CabWriter features a diverse set of base and upper cabinet types to choose from. Choose your construction method, and use the Story Stick to layout the location of your cabinets. Each cabinet can consist of one or more boxes and each box can be of a different cabinet type from the list shown below.

Each use of the Story Stick creates single cabinet with one or more boxes, and in the case of a face frame design, a single unified face frame will be drawn across all of the boxes as shown at the right. In the case of a frameless design, a single use of the Story Stick still creates a single cabinet containing one or more boxes, with all of the boxes grouped together under the same cabinet number.
