How should I space my cabinet doors when there’s no post between them?
I am making a cabinet—it will have two doors with no post between them. The opening is 21" wide x 15" high. The hinges are on the left and right sides, and the doors meet in the middle. How much spacing should I provide around and between the doors?
I’m assuming by the way your question is phrased that these will be inset doors, rather than overlay. If this is correct, I would suggest a spacing of around 1/16” at the most. (I like to use a dime to check spacing.) I would strongly suggest initially building the doors to the full size of the opening, and then trimming them back little by little to get that perfect reveal.
