Bath Vanity Base Filler Strip


Vanity goes in a tight corner of a bath. There is only about 1/2" clearance between the basin counter edge to the outer door casing, which is a little tight. The base unit is made of a plywood wall and the filler strip looks something like laminate poplar or near this. Rough plumbed out of wall...

Cabinet has a smooth painted, fine finish on the outside that continues to the hinge side framing.

-> Could either size/rip the filler and predrill and screw from the inside I guess, or try to size it up and do the same from the concealed/wall side (but without a way to re-adjust in the future, after the cab is permanent). Of course if it's glued it's done 'acceptance style'.

Is there an easier way to do this?

-> Mount the cab and counter with an open gap, and then push in the filler from the outside ? Not too far! (how to bring it back?)

-> Mount the cab alone, then the filler, then the counter? Is this the common sense approach? (noting there is only about 3/8" counter extension - not much to screw through for the filler.)

I love economy in writing. Just need to practice more of it myself...

You'd think I know this, just got done scribing the flooring!

Now wondering whether to fool with the kickplate - don't want to put on a vinyl base since the corner cut would show and it wouldn't look that great in a full wrap.
