the "HOW" of installing base cabinets away from wall
I tried to revive an old thread (in appliances) that came up when I searched "Gardenweb base cabinet install away from wall". But, I've had no responses over the last couple days, and I hope to do my project this weekend. Can you help?
I want to install "base cabinets" away from the wall in my mudroom, but I am DIYing it and looking for guidance. I know that I can use 2 2x4s to build it out about 3"s. My question is, do you build it out with 2x4s in the horizontal, or do you have to build some support studs to hold those 2x4s in place? (I am thinking, here, about how I would attach the 2x4s to the wall at the upper section of the cabinets, not where they'd sit along the floor).
Has anyone done this who can offer me a "this is what we did, and it is all still in place"? (What kind of screws/fasteners attach your 2x4s to the wall (into studs)?)
