the neighbor is not very mechanically inclined. He is great at coming up with ideas and stuff but lacks the know-how to do it. We worked well together in my garage to construct all of this and he helped with the install also. I did not have to stain it as his wife jumped in to do that part of the job.
These look really well done. Like everyone else here, I would like to live next to a neighbour as talented as you.
A couple of questions:
1. did you install a leveling base to mount the cabinets on? or install and and shim the cabinets level?
2. did you leave an 1/16 or 1/8" overhang on the face frame in order to scribe the cabinet to the wall?
