They call it labor day for a reason...

I finished the kitchen cabinets on schedule and my brother and sister-in-law came up this weekend and attacked the project with gusto...

First the sheet rock came down, and then most of the wall studs came out.































Then the carpet and the kitchen floor had to be cut back to the subfloor level so cabinets could sit down where they needed to be.
















Once the final dimensions were figured out, the end post to support the overhead beam went in place (the beam was pocket screwed into the ceiling joists).






















At the end of the first day, the beam was all done, and the cabinets were sitting in place.


















At the end of the second day the cabinets were permanently set (the were screwed together and pocked screwed into the floor), and the temporary counter top was installed.



















And finally around 1:00pm today (day three) the three massive drawers were installed (they were built on day 2), and the sliding trash bin was also installed.



















Everybody is now tired, including Reba the Wonder Dog, and Grace the cat.

Excellent job, just out of curiosity, why did you leave a post on one end?  is it a load bearing wall (doesn't look it).  I did a similar project with my kitchen and dining room and opened the whole wall up.  This is not the best view, but the only one I have.

**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

KWS1000 Availability? 6 Replies

Kreg Jig Dust Collection Attachment

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