Hi Stu,

Sorry for the late reply, we have been on  holiday this last week and will only be back to work Monday.

To answer your question, no it’s not possible to create the top as 2 rails in a method.

The best way to manage this is to create a library of cabinets that have all elements that can’t be built into a sub-method.

I always suggest that once the manufacturing methods set up you use them to create a cabinet library that can be used as models to build projects. If you make a basic base cabinet with the 2 railed top you can load it, change the size and add doors, drawers etc as needed without having to add the structure. I would suggest you do the same for special cabinets like sink units, dish washer units etc that require specific set ups that are not manageable directly in a method.

Hope this is helpful,



Stu Robertson

I am wanting to know if it is possible to set up my top rails in a design method instead of the standard full size top.

The intention is to remove the extra step of having to add the library structure to get the rails.
