I installed boxed cabinets and they were pre-cut and I noticed that everything was at a 3 inch measurement in regards to the face how would I compensate for that

Very nice! But I apologize I don't have the luxury of listening to detailed explanations. So I had to skip through the video you spent all this time editing. Just observing the pic at 17:03 gave me what I was looking for. Simple construction of quantity 2 – 3/4" rails on the top side front & back with a 3/4" ply for the bottom shelf gets me all I need thanks!
