« Part 10: The Corian installation continues #3. Part 11 of Kitchen Remodel series Part 12: More Corian work. And, yes Todd was right it is just like glass »

I built the base cabinet where the sink would go. It’s the same size as the one that is being replaced with the exception that the existing cabinet didn’t go into the corner. It stopped just past the sink. I guess cost cutting on the previous owner.

The sink is not normally mounted upside down in the bottom of the cabinet. I had it here to find the correct positioning to cut the hole in the counter top.

This is sitting in the kitchen in front of the cabinet being replaced.

I ripped out the old cabinet. Had to remove a disposal, dishwasher, and water line to refrigerator.

I mounted a 12” cabinet that will be used to store cooking sheets. The drawers have not yet been made. i ran out of Baltic Birch.

I then put in the base cabinet.

Now on to the Corian counter top with the sink.

No sink and no stove. Looks like you and the Mrs. will be eating out for awhile! Maybe there was a method in her madness when she asked you to redo the kitchen :^)

Yes Lew it was pizza tonight. You’d think I could at least get a steak.

You’re right, Karson. With all the money you’re saving, you should be eating steak! You’re doing a great job.

You have taken on an enormous project. So far it looks great. But, I wouldn’t expect less from you.

Hey buddy;

It’s looking good so far… no surprise there though.

How do you like the feet?
