« Part 3: Finishing and Rambling and Rambling Part 4 of Kitchens series Part 5: I'll never get it done! »

Now this kitchen is just taking up space in my shop. Everything is sprayed. The drawers are all in. I’ll wait on hanging the doors till I’ve installed the kitchen. This has been fun. I’ve just been installing for way to long. Nice to get back in the shop.

The new mats seemed to have helped quite a bit. I can put in my full four hour day with out any complaint. I’m looking forward to building more in the shop. I’ve got two small jobs backed up. I wonder when I’ll get back to building my house. Of course everything will have to wait till I get my Greene and Greene table built.

I’m looking forward to doing a few more kitchens. I’m going to hate installing that prefab crap now that I know how competitive i am. Why do we settle for this low quality stuff? I’m ready to get this kitchen installed and then I’ll get my shop back!

That’s called Boxes on Boxes. Now appearing at your favorite Art Gallery. Or maybe in your own kitchen.

glad to hear that you can tolerate “long spells” in the shop again

And I had to laugh at your house being put on hold because of the priority—the challenge table :D

I hope you can post some pictures of them when installed. I know how you feel about the prefab stuff. I look at funiture in stores and can’t believe people will pay so much for that junk. The sad part is that they would probably want to pay less for quality. Hope you get in your shop soon.

Very impressive Dennis. I hate doing huge projects like this – just for the same reason, there isn’t room to do anything else in the shop, until you finish the current project and get it moved out! Mike

Thanks everyone. I keep thinking if I had just made my shop 5 feet longer. I guess it is like clamps always needing more.

5 feet longer and then you’d “sprawl” and need another 5 feet.. and then sprawl again…

Unless of course you are nothing like me and would keep it organized and efficient.
