A Good Tall Cabinet
A good installation of the tall cabinet begins with a good design. Measure from the highest point on the ground and draw a line that marks the top level of the base cabinets. The height of 19-1 / 2 in. From that line and draw another line from the bottom of the upper cupboards. The elimination of shelves, doors and drawers makes installation easier and prevents damage. Mark the location of the doors on the painter’s tape, and make a pencil mark on the top of the hinges so you have a good starting point when you reinstall.
Most of the time you can fit the tall cabinet as you go, but if there is an extreme arch in the wall, Fit it out before hanging the cabinet. If you do not, you may accidentally pull the back of the cab while fixing it in place. It is easier to hang the shovels when you are not hanging path in the base cabinets. Rest the tops in a board-it’ll bookkeeping book guaranteeing good, straight alignment and eliminating the frustration of holding the cabinets in place while you screw them to the wall.
When connecting two tall cabinet to each other, align the face frames and the clamp together. Both cabinets should be fixed to the wall at this time, but you may have to loosen one cabinet or another to get the frames that line up perfectly. Hand-held screw clamps do not flex, and less bending means tighter control.
