I could take a picture but we've done that exact thing in our kitchen to make almost a bar like area. Small kitchen and didn't have a lot of cabinet space and couldn't do full depth. Wall cabinets set on a 2x4 platform to match the toe kick height everywhere else with the taller finished end panels and toe kick across the front makes for a nice looking little cabinet section.Agreed.
You can use wall cabinets as base cabinets, in certain situations, as long as you make them look like base cabinets;
Which may mean, building and trimming your own kick-space.
Depends on what tools you have and how well the cabinets are built.Good to hear. I'm thinking it's easier to cut the backs off standard-depth cabinets though.
