Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job -- Part II


Got the kitchen installed today. Next is the countertop template. I'll be working on a cabinet that will go to the left of the pass thru window. It's going to hold all the coffee stuff. The panels for the refrigerator and the dish washer need to be designed and made. Tomorrow I'll put the handles on the island and if they want the same ones on the kitchen, I'll drill those holes also.

Snobnd helped with the install, thanks.

Weight. Why? Does it bother you? Makes it easier to access for cleaning too.

Nah, doesn't "bother" me.. just curious as to why as I'm always interested in outside the box thinking (in this case literally ) and since we make our components as well, had never seen it done that way before..

That said, unless I am seeing the photo wrong, looks like the sides are ply, but even if hardwood, guess I don't see much weight advantage to justify the time spent to make the hole and finish it, and it would seem with the sides open, it would actually end up increasing the need for cleaning as when the sides are closed, the can's protect the inside of the hole...

Looks good though and I bet easier to load...

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job -- Part II


Actually gets rid of a lot of weight. I didn't do it to the front of the unit because I didn't have a template that was small enough. This was a new design, I was playing with the dovetail machine. Not sure if I'll do it again. I've gone through several designs during the years and the simpler ones are heavier.

It's made from 5/8" baltic birch and the bottom is 3/8"

Here is a clearer view.

Do you edge band that or leave the plys exposed?
