Smile Cover Panel Thickness

Ok sorry if this has been asked before, but I did a search and just got more confused by the answers, including that the Ikea dimensions are not accurate. So here is what I need to know, the thickness of the following panels: 3x8' is it 5/8" thick?, oven front panels 30x40" 5/8" thick?, oven panel 30x58" I/2" thick?, high cabinet 24x88" 1/4" thick?, base cabinet side panels 241/8"x303/8" are they 3/8" thick as well?

I finally have most cabinets in including the sink..... yippie I haven't had a sink for 2 months, bathroom one just sucks for washing dishes. I still haven't decided on fronts and doors, still holding out for Nexus Brn. Blk. or Nexus Yellow Brown or if there will be a Nexus Brown . I will post pictures as the job progresses. Thanks.

Re: Cover Panel Thickness

Generally the 3x8' panels are 5/8" thick, the oven panels (30x40/30x58") are 3/4", cabinet side panels (base, wall, pantry) are 1/2" thick.
There are some differences depending on door style ( ie . the cover panels for Abstrakt White are 9/16" thick) but the above dimensions are the most common.

Re: Cover Panel Thickness

Thanks Torrus for the quick response. You've probably answered this question a million times. Well short break and back to measuring 2x and hopefully cutting once.

Re: Cover Panel Thickness

I'm furnishing my own doors and side panels, so haven't bought any Ikea ones. So, can someone tell me how the Ikea side panels attach. Peel-and stick adhesive, screws...?. If the former, can anyone recommend a double-sided sticky tape which will stick well on melamine?

Re: Cover Panel Thickness

The cover panels are attached with screws from the inside of the cabinets - I use 1 1/4" particl board screws and a finishing washer.
