Here is one of the corner cabs that I was asking about before in the thread about fitting it through a doorway.
These cabinets will each have a two-rack, pie-cut lazy-susan in them. I'm matching a HD cabinet style (actually I think it's Mills Pride). It's a very simple style, what I would call a shaker style (it's not really shaker style I just don't know what else to call it) except with a v-groove at the rail and stile joints and appropriately matching edge chamfers. I went back to HD to measure the dimension of their corner cab and it is 36" x 36". These, as you may recall, are 35" x 35". This leaves me with an 11" from the inside corner of the opening to the outside of the cabinet. With me so far?
These are faceframe cabinets with 1 1/2" cabinet stiles. If I only put a 3/4" x 3/4" edge band on the edge, instead of a 1 1/2" stile, I will still only have approx. 14 1/2" of width in the opening, not including what the door will take when fully opened. If I put a full 1 1/2" stile on the cabinet edge, the opening will get even smaller. Does this make sense? I'm concerned about the opening being too small to be of any use.
Is this too small of an opening? What is an acceptable opening for this type of cabinet application?
I just went to specialty supplies (the first link to come up on Google), http://www.specialtysupplies.com/lazy-susans-c-59.html
and now I don't know if it's a pie cut or a kidney shaped.?????? You REAL cabinet folks know what I'm talking about though, right?
Another question, if I may?
When a size is listed for one of these lazy susan kits, is the listed size ACTUALLY that size or is it a little smaller or larger? IOW, is a 28" shelf kit EXACTLY 28" in diameter? What is your experience?
Thanks very much for any help and advice you can provide.
