Please feel free to reach out in this thread if you have questions, comments, or feedback related to this update. Have a great weekend and happy carving!

  • Where can the toe-kick dimensions be changed?

  • Is it still possible to do a solid top (vs. stretchers) with dados?

Hey Dave,

Sorry I missed this! We’re working on some changes to the locations of various settings. You can edit the toe-kick dimensions for the whole project by selecting the “See entire project” button that’s currently near the bottom of the left side of the screen. And yes, it is still possible to do a solid top or stretchers with dados. Box construction method and top panel style are also available in the “See entire project” view. We’re working on making these options available on the “cabinet-level” view for projects with only one cabinet and we’ll be launching that change in the next few days.

Thanks and have a great evening!
