I remodeled the kitchen from the cork board floor to the birch plywood with poplar cabinets to the concrete counter top. I didn’t have much tools back then, so most the cuts were done by hand with my Japanese hand tools. I did use some power tools and the local retailer ripped the plywood to 2×8’ planks so they will fit in my hatchback. I recently started blogging, you can see more at www.cabinetguy.blogspot.com

I really love this kitchen area. I hate wasted spaces and I don’t think you have any!!!! AND it’s beautiful to look at, as well.

Looks to me like you do just fine in the living room with hand tools. Very nice.

You did a great job on the kitchen Thaun. I’m in the process of doing the initial design and idea stage of redoing a kitchen that is 35 years old and what you did is very similar to what I was thinking of doing. I like what you did with the wood combinations.

Did you start from scratch with the cabinets or did you use the original cabinets? My cabinets are old but they are all 3/4 inch ply and the shelves are solid wood. They are in reasonably good shape so I hate to waste the wood. I’m trying to get some ideas as to what to do, rebuild or veneer?

Very nice work…only one comment, I would make the bottles drawer fences a little bit higher if I know my wife…and I know her…

I can see that you have the Rice cooker and the Hot-pot…before we left Japan and moved to Poland, we bought 2 rice cookers and 2 hot-pots…so convenient…(we have 100V circuits in the house)

Great job – and with so few tools. That’s what’s so great about this woodworking – you really can DO a lot of woodwork without all the expensive stuff and still have a lot of FUN.
