After drawing the plans, I went to the store to purchase the lumber to build the storage box. Had to make a few substitutions due to the price of lumber here in England. Instead of using ply, I settled for MDF. Still quite expensive but nothing near the price of ply or pine. Anyway, I will post pictures of the work in progress.
Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve had any updates. I’ve been very busy. The cabs have been installed minus doors and drawer fronts. Toe kick and drawers are in, so the kitchen is now usable. Here’s a few picks of the some of the upper doors before finish. I’m actually in the process of finishing the doors as I type. Maybe in a week or so I can post some pics of the cabs on the down hill side.

Well, after milling the stock and making a new tenoning jig for the table saw I was ready to cut the tenons on the aprons of the table. The jig was worth the effort and I was able to do a first dry fit of most the table parts. There’s more info in this post on my blog along with pictures of the new jig and the process. Take a look and thanks for reading!

Well, unfortunately there isn’t a whole lot of content to go through for this step since it is pretty much doing the same thing over and over again. I marked out on the legs where I want the rails to go. I had to alter some measurements from the plans since the rails are now 3.5” instead of 4” wide. I wanted to get all of the front and side pieces out of the same board and this was the price I paid. No biggie, will look about the same in the end. So the lines were all...
Broke out the eggbeater drill, brace with countersink bit, and a screw driver. Marked out my holes with combo square and awl. Drove in some #10 1 1/4 slotted screws by hand, ended up with a blister. . 4 per side per shelf, overkill i believe, planned on only 3 but apparently my subconscious kicked in and made me do 4. they are all clocked inline with the grain for you ocd individuals (wish i had some Citric acid to remove the zinc plating) I shoulda went with my first idea and coun...
