    Aren’t the two pieces reversed in the first diagram?

    @Amre, I thought they were reversed too but they’re not. In the diagram above you have to imagine where the red & blue lines are as the wall. The greyed out areas would be touching the back of the cabinet.

    @Lord Nibbo, thanks for creating this diagram, really makes it easier to visualize everything! 🙂
