There are no steadfast rules, but it's common to have a bit of a face frame overhang on the outer edge. Cheaper cabinets will often use 1/2 ply (or worse yet some particle board type stuff) cases with about a 3/8" overhang on the outer edge, with the intent of adding a 1/4" filler panel on a finished end. Do you have any other resource materials to turn to for advice?
