Almost there with the kitchen cabinets. Today I was able to install them, fit the top and appliances and start using them. There are only 2 things left to complete this project, build and install the kick plate and the cabinet door. The door may have to wait a little while as I don’t have a drill press yet. I don’t fancy trying to drill the 35mm hole for the hinges with a hand drill. I am looking at the limited choice of drill presses here at the moment, so far a Performax 12” bench top model is leading the field.
This is by far my biggest and most challenging project so far. I’m not trying to complete with you guys that make these all day, I really just wanted to have something to cook on inside the house! Before building this we only had a large wok sized burner outside, perfect for cooking Thai food but no good for trying to simmer something for a couple of hours.
Total cost for materials worked out at around $100 US, not bad at all.
