Hi Tom,

If you just groove the drawer fronts into the vertical divisions you’ll get a cut out .

To avoid this you must also set back (set a recess value) the vertical division from the front of the cabinet.

Hope this helps.

Best regards,

I would like to have some drawers that are behind a door/ double door. This is fairly straightforward to set-up, however I would like the drawer fronts to overlap/ overlay the vertical uprights. This works fine until I place the doors in front. Then the drawer fronts are brought flush to the vertical uprights and its not possible to overlap them. I have tried to extend the drawer fronts by grooving them but this does not work well.

Model attached.

Kind regards
