Great idea. Charles Neil uses it and demonstrates it in his “Cases and Bases ” dvd. That way you can adjust for floors being irregular or not level. Which I am sure is not the situation here.

Where’s the frig going. LOL!

Soffits look good!

good progress.

I have used the 2x material method of installing base cabinets for many years. I think you will like it.

Blackie, it seems construction steps are endless when you are going through them. This looks great and you are doing quality work. Keep going, details matter.

Thanks, everyone, Randy thanks for your confidence :) but truth be told, I’m cutting a lot of corners on this project as to save on $$ and time but if it were to be spot on than all of the plywood would be cabinet grade inside and out, the edges would receive hardwood spliced edging not iron banding so as to make it right, also I’m not building this unit with a face frame, I’m going frameless to save time as well, the doors would also be shaker panels or cope and stick with hardwood something of that nature but I think that’s an over kill for a workshop, just as long as it’s nice and neat is all that counts :)

I think you have done an excellent job!

Now if you have any framing material left over how about a nice frame for the window rattler.
Its in the photo near the rubbermaid shed and possibly next to that rectangular item on a post, which you have missed telling me what it is…...hint hint!
The window rattler is looking a bit sad,, you know the saying Chin up Chest out! that sort of stuff.

Dont be too concerned about gilding everything as long as its functional servicable and neat. I have used iron on edging heaps of times.

Hmm Rob, I could of sworn I posted a picture of the exterior trim boards that I painted ready to install, I do have the trim boards just haven’t had the chance to install them yet, the only thing that I’ve trimmed so far are the Interior side of all windows and the AC unit both interior and exterior, the item I think you are speaking g of is a bird house my dad built, is that what you are referring too?
