Well I’ve still been busy building additional cabinets.
I’m working on the lower cabinets, because the upper cabinets need to match placement of the lower cabinets and I’m now working myself into a corner.
That’s the sink corner. Old picture. It’s just to the right of the range.
So what I’ve accomplished is building the cabinets to the left of the range.
The range is being moved about 18” to the left so the cabinets that I’m building are about 30” longer than the cabinets that I’m replacing. The white cabinet was stuck in there when we moved into this house to give her a little additional storage space.
My wife seems to be ignoring the mess that I made of her kitchen.
The end cabinet on the new left return has the veneer and framework being placed on the two outside surfaces.
The cabinet that starts the left return will have 5 drawers, each about 5” high.
The end cabinet will have 3 drawers. A 6” 8” and 10”
So when installed they look like this.
The return cabinet that fits against the wall is 27” wide. That is so I will have a 3” corner space on the 24” deep cabinets. I glued some homemade veneer of the Yellow Birch and glued it to the spacer pieces so that the opposing drawer will slip by the opposite drawer handle.
I then put in a 24” cabinet that is between the return area and the stove.
I then put another 24” cabinet to the right of the range. in order to make it fit I took out an 18” cabinet that was under the sink counter top that is visible in the first picture.
Again no drawer fronts have been designed or made as of yet. I’m trying to make the lower kitchen cabinets built and useful before I spend extra time making drawer fronts.
I’m also waiting on making the upper cabinets until all of the lower ones are made and installed. My mother in law is coming in 2.5 weeks so i got a little work to go.
I did give her a little bonus tonight. I brought in a piece of Corian to cover over the open tops of the cabinets, even though she thought that the open top did have a great functionality.
The count as of now is 22 drawers under the counter surface and 2 additional sliders that will have trash containers and a pull out drawer under the sink for dish cleaning supplies.
The flowers were a little gift a couple of days ago.
