Newbie making first cabinet

Hey guys.

So like the title says, I'm new here and making myself a frameless cabinet!

Made the box out of 3\4 oak plywood. Box is 37 1\2 wide and 31 1\4 high... weird dimension I know but fits exactly where I need it!

Now the box is made and looking to make the doors and drawers. Will be using the same 3\4 plywood.

I am going with 2 full doors and 3 drawers on the right side. for the 2 doors, should I go full overlay or half with the euro hinge? I am asking because the doors will be next to the drawers and I guess I should leave a small space between the two?!

Any help would be appreciated!

You only need to leave a minimum of 1/8" between the doors and drawer fronts. The doors and fronts can virtually cover the entire front of the cabinet. Some people put touch catches on the doors and drawers so you don't even have to have pulls on the them.

Are you using a face frame?
