New Book - SketchUp For Kitchen Design

10-06-2016 10:14 AM by BobLang | 1 comment »

I’ve just released a new book in enhanced PDF format (50 videos are embedded within the 195 pages of text) about using SketchUp to create 3D models of kitchens. If you’re planning to redo a kitchen, or are in the business, this book starts with the download and setup of the program, shows you how to use SketchUp to model a room, fill it with cabinets, appliances and counters, and generate both realistic renderings and technical drawings from the same model. Special introductory...

Happy day for me as the I can see the final product coming together. After I let the stain mixture set overnight I break out the lacquer. Over the last few days I have been applying and letting dry and re applying. I have a total of 4 coats of lacquer. Here is was the almost finished product looks like… My wife loves it so that’s good…but I am pretty critical on myself so looking at it I can see a few things I wish I would have done differently, but overall im...

Kitchen Island #1: Seeking Lumberjocks advice on joinery within custom-designed kitchen island

08-15-2015 05:58 PM by GJK | 1 comment »

My custom-made western red cedar fence is done and so is the kitchen rehab, including cherry cabinets and a matching cherry ladder system I designed and purchased from an old-line rolling ladder maker in NYC for reaching the tallest cabinets near the 10’ ceiling: After cutting through walls to open up space above doors and changing all door trim to 8’ high trim, I had two glass workers (an experienced gent in Alabama and a lady in Telluride CO) each make two transom ...

Building a house #1: Kitchen base cabinet

08-14-2015 07:41 PM by Joe Brumley | 0 comments »

So we are building a house. It has been a huge undertaking especially when my personality is such that I feel like I have to do everything. Luckily my wife has been there to help talk me down from some things and to give perspective. But I too have given perspective to her as well and one of the things that she decided we did not need to do was have me try to fit an old sink in a new house. Now don’t get me wrong I wanted to use it but after looking at what was going to be involved I of...

Kitchen table Build #2: day 1

06-09-2015 04:26 AM by Woodpecker23 | 0 comments »

So I started this entry this morning before I went out to the Shop to start this build I am so excited to do. Right as I was about to walk out the door go figure my wonderful daughter woke up and were begging for bacon and eggs… so the start had to hold of a little bit for the little princess’s. I did finally get out to the shop and here is what was accomplished today (definitely not as much as I had hope but a start non the less) I started with just some basi...

Easy DIY Wooden Kitchen Countertop

05-15-2015 08:27 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 1 comment »

Redoing little parts of our house, we decided to do an ebony stained wooden counter top. After removing the counter, the pieces were cut individually. They were all glued on. A 1 1/2”x3/4” piece of pine was nailed to the front edge of the counter to give it a thicker look. Stain was then applied after some sanding and filling in any gaps or holes. When the stain was dried approximately 6 coats of poly were applied and let cured before anything was placed on top. View on YouTube

Complete Kitchen Remodel

01-21-2015 11:37 PM by Scott C. | 9 comments »

I spent the better of 2014 remodeling my kitchen. I did 95% of the work myself (by myself, my friends aren’t particularly handy). Here’s the details: DesignThe first phase of the project was designing a new layout for the kitchen. Our old kitchen, in addition to being outdated, was pretty cramped and hard for 2 people to work in. We had an eat in area originally, but since the dining room is right next to the kitchen I wanted to use that space to expand the main work area of th...
