« Part 3: Progress and a Question Part 4 of Round Kitchen Counter Project. series Part 5: Staining and Waterlox finish »

It has been a while, out of state family visits and of course the holidays takes a toll on progress.

Dan Krager, Grumpymike, if you are reading this, thank you for replies on the last update, I knew coating the bottom was the wise choice and I thank you for pushing me over the edge to get er done. :)

Here are just some progress pics, but have to tell you; getting really tired of glue, clamps and sandpaper! lol

Jeff,

You’re making progress! We can’t even imagine the work that has gone into this so far. Is that PVC bendable or did you have to joint through each 2×6? This record of your work really shows all the details.

Thanks lightweightladylefty,

The 2×6’s were 2×8’s at first, cut them down to 4’, strait line ripped on side and re-ripped to exactly 6” not that 6” was of any importance but just wanted a nice strait knee wall with not cups, twists or bows, All of the holes were pre-drilled on the drill press before cutting the tops to length.

The holes for the pipe are 3 inch allowing to raise one end, filled around with foam fill and cut away the excess foam.

The pipe was bent with 2 heating guns; one from each side as you can see in the pic below. I was able to install about half the studs before feeding the pipe in and the rest had to be slid over the pipe one at a time and installed.

All of this can be seen on the first page of this blog if you wish.

Thanks for stopping by! Cheers – Jeff

Jeff,

Thanks for showing that photo. I know that I read your first blog because I remember the last comment about living in a barn. It must be that the photos didn’t all open before this lousy dial-up timed out and that I didn’t take the time to open each one individually because I don’t recall seeing that . . . or it could just be my selective old-age memory! This kitchen should be worthy of a place in a special issue of kitchen designs when it is finished.
