Kitchen remodel


You go girl, I guess it take out weekend!

I had an idea for your desk - tv area, such as
putting the tv up in a cabinet over the desk.
but I'll wait until you're finished.
Lord knows, I've added on and changed
things in my kitchen as I went along.

The problem here, and the reason i kept the TV low, is because the bed is very low (post #9) and he would have to crank his neck up to watch it, also i have cats that knock things over all the time...dont want to risk the TV.
so with three roughneck boys, three pain in the a** cats...better keeping things at a level where the tv wont break if it falls. The shelf will be for all the video game systems and the cable box.

Kitchen remodel


so tomorrow i will start on my lower cabinets. I like to call my first victim "The Black Hole" due to the fact that its so deep everything gets lost in there. I plan to block out the back corner to make it shaped like half a hexagon, line the inside with beadboard, then add two rows of shelves. i cleaned it out tonight so it would be ready and further remembered why i call it The Black Hole...I've got way more ugly pitchers than one family needs. Chloe thinks so too...

gotta get firewood still, then off to lala land. too tired to do the desk.

Hopefully I havent bored everyone to tears with my lagging kitchen project, but believe it or not, my local builders wholesale store (1 mile away) is closed on weekends...guess when I need things...weekends!

i did manage to get all the osb cut to reshape "the black hole" but i cant put it all together till the handyman comes tomorrow to move my plugs and switches...then I can get the cabinets built finally. wood plank countertops will come very shhortly after.

Meanwhile...could somebody tell me what type of plywood this is? Its very smooth and dense, and i love it so much.

You will have to get a clear picture before anyone can ID that.

I see 7 plies (I think anyway) how thick is it? 3/4"?

OK, I'm at a bit of a loss here, but usually 1/2" plywood with that many plies is likely to be Baltic Birch. But that big knot says otherwise.

There is no doubt it is good quality plywood because of the even plies. Perhaps a cherry...?

Jim, can we get your opinion.
