Dear forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

How to calculate once you have the cu.ft volume to length height and depth of a cabinet

You must have some idea of what you want, such as depth and height.

ft^3 divided by one dimension will give you the area of the other two dimensions. Dividing this area by the second dimension will give you the remaining side.

For example, you want a vertical cabinet that will hold 10 ft^3 and you want it 15" deep. 15/12=1.25 so 10 ft^3 / 1.25 = 8 ft^2. You decide you want it 2' wide so, 8 ft^2 / 2 will give you a cabinet 4' tall.
