Question Cut down Kitchen Cabinets for Office use?

After planning our small home office around available IKEA office cabs, we found out they were discontinued!
New Idea: I wonder if I can cut IKEA kitchen cabinets to a 16 in depth, which is office depth and would fit in this small room, and mount wall kitchen cabs on top for a really nice custom look. Question: Will I still be able to attach them together with the special hardware? I would have to use just doors, since I'm sure this wouldn't work with drawers. I would appreciate any guidance/experience here!

Re: Cut down Kitchen Cabinets for Office use?

This article covers the details of trimming the cabinets to a different depth, some of the information doesn't apply to you.

The "special hardware" is just a nut and bolt that goes through the 3rd hole from the top and bottom of on the front row of holes. See page 18 for how these are used.

You could use the drawers that are in the 12" deep cabinets, granted you won't be using the full depth, but better than nothing: eg RATIONELL Deep fully-extending drawer+damper - 15x12 " - IKEA
