Randy,

Looking good! Sink stove and fridge for your tenant apartment? Hope you added extra insulation for the Texas sun?

Are you going to do a face frame?

No frames Tom, frameless, I still need to add more stretchers to each cabinet to house the drawers.

Blackie, the hardest part of a project like this it to keep grinding away on getting it completely finished. Keep at it. You are doing well and the finish line is at least in sight and will be worth it. It took me 20 years to build my shop, but I enjoyed working on it and I like to work there. You will too. All you really need to know is the overall plan and what you are going to do tomorrow.

Randy,

Stellar job on the new shop addition…I’ve followed your blog from the get-go, and I’m impressed at your constant urge to “get ‘er done”...There’s nothing like getting something accomplished when you do it yourself. Besides…it saves on labor cost when someone else does it….If I could figure my labor on what I’ve done to my shop, I’d have plenty of money…:). It’s a proud feeling to stand back and look at your work, and say “I did that”....

Thanks once again all Rick, I just came from peeking at your workshop and I have to say it’s very nice, I cut some corners in cost though with my project, I’m using paint grade ply from the box store for the exposed areas doors and drawer fronts and the hidden areas of the cabinets are rough Ply sheathing, I’m debating to use gel stain or gloss white on the cabinets, I’ll prob do a test coat on scrap to see what it looks like with the gel stain, both will give me plenty of protecting and both are easy to clean.
