One Project Down, Another Project Ready To Go

Finally finished the face frames on the built-in bookcases, and they are now done except for painting (and my lovely wife is going to take care of that).

Here is the "finished" product that still needs some "finish".



























Now on to new and (gasp) even bigger things. We are going to take a wall out of the Kitchen and open it up to the dining room, and where the wall was, we're going to put in a new set of Cabinets with a built in breakfast bar. The run of cabinets is going to be 8' long.

We started out with a hand sketch:










I then took this to Sketchup and rendered some views:




















































Did I mention I have to have these cabinets done by Friday? No? Thank goodness for the Kreg Pocket Hole Jig! I really just need to get the cabinet(s) into this stage shown below. I'm going to build in 4 pieces and bring them into the house one at a time.





















Maybe I will be able to post a quick update each day this week to show progress.

...and does anyone know of a pocket hole plan for built-in bookcases with window seat?

Looks great. Would love to see more pics of the build and, by now I'm sure you're finished, the completed masterpiece.

Looks great. Looks like you've got Sketchup figured out really well, Kerry!

I did everything James said, including buying the book, Sketchup: The Missing Manual.

Hi Kerry, the cabinet project you finished looks pretty nice. By the way, how did you learn to use Sketch Up?

**wanted** Accu-Cut tips & tricks for taking saw on and off the Universal Saw Base

I'm on my third set of replacement guides. Seems like every time I mount the saw on the base, regardless of how careful I am about setting it up to the side block and front, it doesn't line up to the previous tolerance. So I have a tendency to…Continue

1st impression when you hold this attachment in your hand:  "not much to it", Kreg sure is makin' $$ here.
