I built two mini cabinets (Spice Racks) that are beside the microwave and fill in the space between it and the two cabinets on each side. The original soffit was about 12” high like the builders put up. I tore them out and made them shorter so the cabinets could be taller. I did fine a couple of water pipes and a sink drain so I couldn’t make a totally flat ceiling but I ended up with a 4” soffit. Two 2X4’s and some drywall. I then decided to cover the front o...
During the week, my wife and I live in a studio apartment in Manhattan. On weekends we escape to our weekend house. We bought it about two-and-a-half years ago. My wife fell in love with the view. It is spectacular, one-of-a-kind. The house, however, was less than ideal from my perspective. The floors were a mess. The trim and doors were nasty. Everything needed painting. And the kitchen was crying out for updating. In the intervening years, we put in oak floors (that was a lot of work), re-s...
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...
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’...
This build has been in ‘progress’ far too long. It started with a reset of my kitchen layout that my Wife and I agreed upon. Much of a back-story here, but in the essence of brevity, I’ll just say this is the point I got to quickly and stopped. The Cabinets are somewhat standard construction with BB ply for the box, Hard Maple for the roll outs and Heirloom Cherry for the face frames and raised panel sides. The roll outs are on full ext. slides. The top rollers are 22”...
I discovered, while building my prototype cabinet, that I need a new tool!! My contractor saw just won’t cut it (sorry for the pun). So after researching the you know what out of the TS market I’ve decided to stick with Grizzly and try their new G0651 (pic below). The only down side to this is I will have to wait 4-6 weeks before these new saws are shipping. This is a real bummer as I’m making progress on this project but to tell you the truth there are really no other...
Hi Everyone. Matthew and I built a couple of wine racks and thought we would share in a blog. First off, we built an addition on to our kitchen about a year and a half ago. We are now getting around to putting in the extra cabinets needed. We needed to create a couple of filler cabinets about 7” wide. Wine racks is what we came up with. Though we consume alcohol as often as a vegetarians eat meat (Well, perhaps a little more) once filled with bottles of wine, they should look ok. ...
Well, after about a week and a half of really building these cabinets full time, I’ve learned a couple things. 1. I love working in my shop! I’m having a blast doing this, and am really hoping I can build things in the shop full time. If I didn’t have to trim a house again, I don’t think I would mind. Of course, part of that may be because I am getting to use my new toys, a Steel City jointer and a planer. More on those I’ll post in my workshop profile. ...
