Been like that for the 22 years I've been here with the last cabs. there's a wall behind it. Never had a bug problem. The whole idea is easy access. Plywood is worse than drywall as far as easy goes.

Re: My Office Remodel.


I'm thinking about cutting clean holes in the cabinet backs.

Re: My Office Remodel.


Is there any other kind of hole you'd cut. That's if you weren't a plumber or an electrician

Well here's hoping you didn't go with Chinese cabs...

Plywood is just a couple of screws... if you're looking for real easy access, while having it covered, magnets or clips or piano-hinge, even lift-up/drop-down panels all work... even sliding panels work (see below - except yours would be below obviously)...

Just some thoughts rather than having a hole behind your cabs...

Re: My Office Remodel.


I have a piece of trim going under that cap the same of course as the one side, to finish it off. How would you guys terminate it at the end of the cherry cap? Just cut a little return piece?

If you're referring to the left side of the pic away from the corner in the second pic... yes...

Return the apron piece, keeping it set back from the end the same distance it overhangs on the edge

Re: My Office Remodel.


My cabinets will take 13 feet of Formica top. I'll probably need to splice a couple counters together. Any tips without breaking the bank in tools?

We have had a custom shop do a few kitchens for us a while back when granite was too much money but something nicer than off the shelf from a box store was desired.

It was around $1,200 for the kitchen. I don't remember the sq ft and that means it's probably like 3k in California dollars... lol.

You'd be surprised what little I pay for cabinets. It usually has everything to do with dealer volume. I get my cabinets cheap from a contractor only supply house. I never buy cabs from the box stores. Not even for my office, which I'm not spending a lot on.

Those are easier than routing t-slots.
I cut the top close and finish with router and flush cut blade against straight guide... glue it up and perfect fit.

Yep the t-slots that are for miter bolts look like they are more work. With these you only have to drill a 1" hole on each peice and slot the center.
