What? Blown a number? Or run a cabinet through a table saw?

Just shove the damn thing in and move on. That's amateurish again....

I could have done an entire house of cabinents including a new kitchen by now. Titan's here to install the kitchens, guys. He's got a sledgehammer..good to go....

Gzzzz...Get a clue people. It's a little vanity. No ...you get a clue....that can create a huge problem if you just start pounding on it.

This guy doesn't need to invest in a bunch of tools and probably destroy the thing in the process.Never used a power planer huh?

Heck, take a hammer and a block of wood and beat the wall over a quarter inch.You've been watching too many DIY shows on Saturday mornings....

Quit standing around the thing like it's something from outer space that you don't have a clue how it works. Amateur. If you only knew.As soon as you start trying to beat this thing in, you've busted up the outside corner bead....then what?
You sound like a young gun outa control that beats on his projects rather than finessing them into place.
If I caught you doing that on one of my projects, you'd be outa there so quick....

...but hey...that may be how you roll.....

Geez, Guys! You have missed the two most obvious ways to fix this situation.

One, rip all the drywall off one wall... shucks, make it BOTH walls... slide the vanity in, then lock it all in place with new drywall.

Two, grab your power sander and sand down both walls 1/8" (you'll have to do the full area of both walls to keep things smooth), then slide the vanity in, and skim coat the whole mess. Of course the three days of trying to clean up all the dust may cause a little friction with the wife.... but that's merely the cost of remodeling.

And people wonder what has happened to the respect the trades used to have?

Ironlight,

I wonder how many people recognize your avatar as Brigadier General Jack Ripper (Sterling Hayden) from Dr. Strangelove (How I learned to stop worring and love the bomb)?



I love this movie.

How long do you think it would take you to put that vanity in and have it completely finished including new drywall and paint?

Using my experience and professional method, it would take me less than 20 minutes with a power planer and some "nursing"

Done...
no repairing
no repainting
no bashin' the crap out of a typically fragile cabinet

...go away boy...you're makin' a mockery of your trade and gettin' in the way......

I do believe Willie and Tom would have had that trimmed and installed before the helper finished taking the empty box to the curb----and not even mentioned the 'problem' to any one.

This silly bit of adjustment is just part of a cabinet install and is quick and automatic--one more day at work---

Why are you picking on me? The very first thing I said to do was to score the face with a knife and cut it with a skilsaw. Done. 10 minutes. But this scares the op. Obviously, he can't install this thing no matter what anybody tells him.

That 'silly old man' has the trust and respect of his customers and piers--

Because he knows how to make something like this --into nothing--without a thought.

Respect is earned--how much are you earning,I wonder.
