Here’s a few snapshots of a recent project for my daughters. The kitchen (refrigerator, oven, sink/cabinet) are all made out of melamine. The drawers are birch ply. All the raw edges of the melamine were edged with mel. edgebanding. The refrigerator has Lexan shelves so the light goes through (just like a real one!) The doors on the ‘fridge are painted with magnetic paint so the refrigerator magnets stick (just like the real one!) The sink is a half-pan chafing dish and the spigot is from a camper trailer. The fun one to figure out was the stove-top grills… computer fan grills. The door on the oven is made so that when open, it lies flat – with the handle touching the floor. -That way when the kids stand on it (and they will) it won’t tip the oven over.
These pictures were taken before the final “clean-up” so some pics show pencil marks and in others you can see sawdust, etc. Anyway, you get the idea.
