Access to outside faucet thru kitchen


Opening up the bottom of the cabinet will be a quick and easy job if you use a Mulit-Tool---

Harbor Freight has a good one for about $20---A better one is the $40 unit --it has more blades and is a tough tool.

Make the opening plenty big--the plumber is going to need room to solder or turn a wrench---Mike---

Any advice on how to cut the planks? The pipe is apparently located at the far right of the cabinet, about under the upper shelf that is visible on the right?

Do your math and locate the pipe---I'd want an opening from the side of the cabinet--over to about 4" from the center of the faucet---then 12" in from the back of the cabinet--

Put tape on your blade to let you know where 3/4" is so you don't go to deep and hit the pipe.

Those Multi-tools are very easy to control---the blade just wiggles back and fourth---
Simple tool---the blades don't do well with nails--so leave the back and side cuts until last.

That's where you will likely hit nails---Mike----
