« Part 2: About the Cherry... Part 3 of Kitchen Reno series no next part

March 2011 Update

There were no cabinets on this wall previous to the renovation – basically just a desk/hutch combo and a chest of drawers:

Empty space before


This wall now has an 18” W x 24” D pantry unit, with 12” deep wall and 24” deep base cabinets giving them all kinds of new storage capacity. Diane decided to go for a solid maple counter top on this side of the kitchen to change things up a bit. All of the remaining base cabinets in the kitchen will receive an acrylic (Corian) counter top.

I just finished mounting the under-cabinet lighting using a “light rail” to hide the light fixtures and associated wiring. I made the light rail on my router table with the same router bit I am using for making all of the raised panel doors & drawers. You can see a bit of the profile in the picture below:

With some shelves installed…Jello anyone?

Sighting down the counter top from the end…I love Cherry!

So long for now. I will back in April with more updates.
