So, as proof that I actually do some work around the house, I had an idea for putting up dividers in the large cabinet above the stove. This area is huge, and we were using it to store pans and such, but as mentioned in another post, the amount of atomic bonding that seemed to be happening between each and every piece in the cabinet was amazing; you would have thought that there was a random spraying of crazy glue from time to time to make things stick together so.

I took some scrap plywood to create spacers, and some 1/2” birch to create the dividers. Cut to size, sanded, finished with spar urethane, and with the help of my son got the pieces installed.

I plan on putting some trim to hide the facing of the bottom and top spacers, but have to get with SWMBO before that finish is done.

Thanks for the compliments, all. It’s one of those smack-yer-forehead projects; why did it take me so long!

The Wife is suitably impressed, which insures that I can continue to do another of my hobbies! Yay!
