True-- however, when I did mine, I made a fundimental error regarding the overhang of the shelf on the base cabinet that made me have to fudge the face frame. Nobody notices it except me. Which is every time I sit at my bar.
Man-- the easiest part of the whole bar and I screw it up. I always say, "make a drawing before building anything, no matter how small," but what happens when I ignore my own advice? I screw it up. Hubris and ate.
