I started this kitchen remodel “project” in the spring of 2013. My only woodworking tools at the time were a circular saw, and a harbor-freight 12” SCMS.

The kitchen before the remodel

after, Its still in progress, I just installed a apron sink and had to build new doors & face frame for the sink cabinet. and the countertops need replaced with granite.

during (2+ years)














Along the way I increased my tool collection a bit, err convinced my wife I needed all of these to finish the kitchen.

PC 7518 in a Mast-r-lift

1617 in a improvised table

love the makita track saw

I did get distracted with (buying) hand tools for a bit, but came back to my senses, so I bought a 3hp delta shaper.

Well it looks like your getting there and doing a very nice job on it. when the wife asks why you need all these tools it is Nice to be able to say “you asked me to Remodel the Kitchen , it is your fault. Well you might not really want to tell her it is Her Fault, Just say because I wanted to give you this Nice Kitchen Dear.

Ha, I’ve been telling her that every time I buy a new tool, I’m not sure if she believes it any more.

Also it looks like I need to resize my pics, they usually don’t take up the whole page
