Greene inspired Night Stand #21: Ball Catches, Trim parts and making the top

12-01-2008 05:39 AM by ChicoWoodnut | 17 comments »

Well this project is taking WAY longer than I had anticipated but I am still enjoying it. I finished installing all 90 some odd plugs and installed some Brusso ball catches to the tops of the doors. This was making me nervous as I have not used them before. I bought brad point bits from LV so I could drill them accurately. That took two weeks of waiting. They turned out nicely though and I really like the way they click into place. I made a decorative detail for the step dow...

Kitchen Remodel #13: Finishing the Corian, I wish.

11-12-2008 02:10 AM by Karson | 17 comments »

After I got the counter top in I did the thing which makes your heart beat fast. I cut a hole in the top of the sink. It was planned, but it doesn’t make it any easier. Once that hole is there, there is no going back. So for the next 3 hours, I put in the faucet. Hooked up the new Dish Washer. And put in the cabinet that will hold the trash containers. And what do you get. A plumbing nightmare. The drains from the two sinks are at a different height. and ar...

Kitchen Remodel #12: More Corian work. And, yes Todd was right it is just like glass

11-10-2008 05:14 AM by Karson | 13 comments »

Well the base cabinet is in place and the position of the sink was determined so I drew an outline of the sink and I put a 3/4” line around the inside. I cut the straight lines using the battery operated skill saw, and the corners with a jig saw. I used hot melt glue and put down wooden blocks so that the sink could be placed in the correct position and be able to placed in position fast. To take the blocks off you just whack them with a hammer (Sideways). I ...

Kitchen Remodel #11: Continuing with the base cabinets

11-10-2008 03:24 AM by Karson | 9 comments »

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 replace...

Kitchen Remodel #9: The Corian installation continues.

11-03-2008 01:57 AM by Karson | 13 comments »

Before we get started, I stated in the previous blog that I’d let you see the cement tube that is used to bond the Corian pieces together. The glue tube with two separate compartments, One for the fill material and the second for the catalyst. The plunger is part of the adapter kit that allows it to be used in a regular caulking gun. Your option is this, or a $80.00 to $150.00 gun. I opted for the $4.00 part. The small plastic piece beside it is an adapter that allows it to be...

Kitchen Remodel #7: Cabinet building continues

10-29-2008 03:34 AM by Karson | 15 comments »

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...

Greene inspired Night Stand #20: Setting Ebony Plugs

09-22-2008 05:39 AM by ChicoWoodnut | 11 comments »

I spent some time today setting the ebony plugs I made in my last entry. It was pretty easy really even though I was pretty apprehensive about drilling holes in an assembled piece. Start by drilling some holes. These plugs are 1/4” so the drill bit is a little smaller at 3/16”. I drilled a little over the depth of the plugs at 1/4” I bought a very cheap 1/4” hollow mortice chisel. I flipped the bit upside down and used it to center the chisel over the...

Kitchen Remodel #6: I just installed the first cabinets for the kitchen in Delaware

09-20-2008 06:03 AM by Karson | 15 comments »

I can’t believe how long it has been since I posted any work on this series. The Buffet/Hutch is not completed. It’s in the state that I showed last. The last post was 473 days ago. I just installed the first cabinets for the kitchen in Delaware. Old Picture. You can see my Greene and Greene Thorsten table that was entered in a LumberJock challenge. New picture. The counter top is from the old cabinet. i plan to put down Corian. I’m doing it myself so I’...
