Well between work, cutting boards and chores I’ve finally made it too the home stretch of Blondie’s Martini cabinet.
I got both backs mounted to the upper and lower cabinets, I mounted, drilled and ran the wires for the LED lighting. I didn’t like the silver bars even though there small, so I made thin maple stripes to cover them. I stained and finished then glued them to the lights, much better look.
Mounted the other door handles, they are pewter martini glasses, the bottoms are shakers I found on EBAY.
I found a pop up power strip for the cabinet, this is really cool. I drilled a 3 inch hole on the counter to mount it once the boss told me where she wanted it. When not in use it retracts, the have them with USB’s as well. We have a docking station so I decided we didn’t need that. It has 3 plugs on it.
I’ve made all the doors including the glass ones, a first for me. I got them all fitted in and adjusted which we all know takes time. I used a nickel for spacing, to allow for expansion and contraction. We’re moving to Seattle in a cpl yrs and expect more movement than here in Southern California.
Blondie wanted a SS backsplash, so off I went to the metal yard. I bought a piece of 22 Ga brushed stainless steel. 59 X 24. Yesterday I glued it in place and and a buddy helped me lift it back up on the counter. It’s pretty heavy Blondie has done it but don’t like it lol
I need to screw down the top and put the bottom trim moulding on. Then drill a small hole in the upper corner of the stainless steel for the dimmer swithch and final rub out and we done.
Thx for looking and help gentleman were almost there.
