This calculator creates the measurements for a cabinet carcass:

  • the cabinet has a solid top, bottom, and sides
  • the back is can be a different material than the sides
  • the back rides in a dado all around, or a rabbet when the set back (BAS) is set to 0
  • the bottom is let in from the bottom edge of the sides
  • the top is flush with the top of the sides
  • the sides extend the entire height of the cabinet
  • the faceframe overlap can be set
  • assembly requires glue and nails/screws
