« Part 2: Working on a countertop Part 3 of Kitchen Cabinets series Part 4: How I cut my shelf pins »

This should really probably go over at Home Refurbers, but I started this series here, so I’ll continue it. Amidst everything else, I got the pantry shelves (not really a pantry, but since that’s the function of these shelves, that’s what we’re calling them) finished. Still need to make the doors, but that can wait; at least we’ve got the huge unweildy particle board monstrosities that we bought from a store going out of business that were there temporarily out of the kitchen.

We haven’t tackled the wiring yet, and we’re still planning on replacing the floor, so I put 2×4 spacers in behind the cabinets to allow the stove to plug in, and the center piece that joins the two 2’ wide cabinets together is held on with cams so that it can be removed to allow the whole thing to come out again, fairly easily.

Yes, the grain is matched across the trim pieces, and those spots with the dividers in ‘em will have drawers.

Excellent looking pantry, I’m loving the matched grain patterns!

Two additional notes:

1. Wow, I’d never noticed how much bowing that particular camera lens has in it… Those sides really are straight.
2. The shelf pin holes are cut with the Domino, I just put up a "howto" blog entry.
