Why would anyone combine the two methods when building the boxes? I read somewhere that some cabinet makers will combine the two methods in building cabs. I'm just wondering what the benefits are and what they look like.
Does anyone have pictures? How is this done?
All I can think of is instead of edge banding the plywood box with a veneer, you would just edge band it with solid wood stock, cut 3/4 in wide to match the plywood thickness. The only benefit in this i can only think of is aesthetics when you open the box you see a solid 1 in wide edge that's solid wood instead of a sticker.
Is this what combining the two methods is? Or do I have it wrong?
This is what I consider a hybrid. It has some face frame and some frameless all in the same cabinet.
Generally speaking, the most common detail is that there is a perimeter of frame with 1/8" margins in the interior.

There are other details that could be used to get a similar look. One way is to build your euro box as normal and apply filler elements to them to create a similar look as these two pictures. I may have some pictures of that as well.
Second thought, we have a job in the shop right now that fits that description. I'll be back...
so the top picture it looks like you just put a filler on the bottom edge connecting the two side posts? and the boxes are euro boxeS?
That cabinet could have been done that way. In this case it was not. The rest of the room needed more frame parts than just the bottom rail so I kept the system the same throughout.
The box parts that don't have a frame attached, just get edgebanded and adjust the door sizes accordingly.
This picture is the rest of that area to show you what I mean.

This kitchen had two different systems in play. The micro cabinet and the oven box were hybrids but the runs of base cabinets were straight euro.

The job in the shop right now is regular euro cabinets with miterfolded fillers for a chunky frame look.
This wall is for the wine coolers. The openings on the right and left will be filled with wine coolers. The center section will have wine glasses hanging from the center shelf.

you can see that the center cabinet is a basic frameless box with a mitered walnut top. Designer's idea....

wow nice work. so basically on that wine cab, you used 3 franeless cabs and then frames around the edges. so there is like overhang on all sides protruding into all three boxes?
also, whats miterfolded
can this only be done on cnc?
I thought maybe they did that because they didn't want to stick a drawer stretcher inside obstructing the sink. But I don't know
