« Part 17: All cabinets are in. Part 18 of kitchen cabinets series Part 19: Drawers! »

It has been some time since my last blog but I have been busy. New countertop has been ordered, I have no idea when it will arrive. All the shevles are now in. These did not take too long to build but the finishing process was tedious.

For the shevles I used up a lot of the scrap plywood I had on hand. Consequently, some of the shevles have the grain direction perpendicular to the edging. Doors will be on the cabinets so I am not to worked up about it. The edging is 1 1/2” by 3/4”. I ran a 1/4” rebate the same height as the plywood and added beading to the front to match the face frame. Edging is on both sides of the plywood.

With all the work and planning we have done for this kitchen it was not until the past week we finally could agree on the hardware; and the winner is:



Glass doors

I started on the first drawer and mounted the slides after adding blocking. Drawer box is done just waiting on some prefinished plywood for the bottom. The slides are blum soft close that mount to the bottom of the drawer.

This has been a long process but I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.
