    We recently moved in to a new house and we have a few cabinets in the garage (Image 1). I wish to be able to lock them to make it safe for our tow daughters. Any help will be appreciated. I out a Surface Bolt (Image 4) on top of the left pane (Image 1a) and put the strike hole in the inner side...
  2. Kitchen & Bath Remodeling
    I'm looking to upgrade the look of my bathroom vanity. Instead of replacing it completely I thought I'd just swap the panels. So instead of the plastic-like white, I'd like it to be a nice walnut wood. Basically simple flat panels, like the existing ones. Question is, how? (I'm not experienced...

    Hi guys in this period of quarantine I tried to optimize the space on the balcony of the house and I made a piece of furniture to take advantage of a corner that was not used.

    I'm attempting to remove a 7ft tall one piece kitchen pantry cabinet. I have removed the screws from the back of the cabinet which is holding it securely to the wall studs. I have also removed all the screws I can find from the right side of the cabinet which has secured it to the cabinets and...

    Hopefully a picture will explain this better than my rhetoric. I have holes in the back of all my cabinets, bathroom or kitchen. You can see them in the pictures. In the top image there's a sliding rail from a bathroom drawer that I removed. Notice how the rail appears to be secured in the back...

    I thought it would be a good idea to install corbels under the counter to make the kitchen more aesthetically pleasing. However, I can not due to the angle of the counter vs the back of the cabinet is not 90 degrees. It's off by about 20 degrees. The only two options I have is to shave off...

    I have roughed the undercabinet lighting with 18/2 wire. I'm planning to use a 24V led strip system which comes in a roll and can be cut to custom sizes. I haven't picked it out yet. Is there a limitation on: 1. 18/2 wire run? 2. max. length of led strips in total after adding up all the...

    Looking to construct new doors for my current cabinets, not sure what original material is, but looks like there is some type of veneer on top. Eventually everything will be painted espresso. So no need to worry about grain/etc. Looking to do this on a budget so won't be able to afford really...
  9. Painting
    I recently had a home built and the cabinets were supposed to be "paint grade SW Incredible White" The cabinet company switched suppliers and the cabinets were painted with SW Incredible White in a conversion varnish. The cabinets have a pink tint which is very obvious against the millwork and...

    I'm wanting to build a shelving unit with solid shelves along the back, and the doors are also shelves but at half the width. I'm concerned, as the doors will have depth (being shelves), that they will be difficult to open because they will essentially wedge against each other. So, my...

    Hi! I'm new to the forum and am hoping this very knowledgeable community might have the solution to a hinge problem. I need to increase the tension on a cabinet hinge. It's a free-swinging overlay hinge and it's being used horizontally to hold up a door on a play kitchen (so it opens like a...

    Hi everyone, I've recently made some cuts for a farm sink in our new kitchen. Never had one before and didn't know that most sinks are not at 90 degree angles. Now I'm left with a small gap as you can see in the photo. It almost looks like I should be able to just put a shim in there and...

    I purchased this used custom cabinet for $100 used. They originally wanted $200, so I think I got a pretty good deal. :) I plan on using it as a hutch/bar in our kitchen dining area. It doesn't have anything terribly wrong with it, besides a crappy paint job and one side got damaged during...

    My wife and I are remodeling a kitchen in our house and we are repainting the cabinets. We want to take off these decorative metal...thingies...on the front. I've no idea what they are called, and no idea how (or if) they can be removed without damaging the face of the cabinet. Any ideas?

    Looking for some help with fixing one of my kitchen cabinets. One of our kids got something caught on the knob when walking past and it ripped the hinge out of the inside as well as damaged the wood. I've attached photos. I also added photos of the other side where I am guessing the previous...

  17. Kitchen & Bath Remodeling
    I recently replaced the countertops in my kitchen. The previous owners had a solid surface counter top. When the installers came to install my new quartz, they pulled up the old solid surface including the 4 inch backsplash of the same material. Unfortunately, the previous owners had also...

    I am working on some built-in cabinets and the veneer on my oak plywood countertop is cracking (see pic). Not sure why, but definitely not water or sun. It has been sitting in the room a month, so getting hit with the heat maybe did it? Either way, since I am pre-finish I am not sure how to...

    We are planning to put our condo on the market soon and the bathroom needs some help. The tile floor and vanity top are in good condition and do not need to be replaced. However, the wood cabinets themselves feel dated to me and I'd like to freshen them up. Husband bought the cabinets and vanity...

    We are installing new cabinets in our kitchen. Including a peninsula. The back and end of the peninsula have a 3/16" finished panel to cover them. Additionally, we have 'decorative' doors that go on top of those panels to give the look of cabinets. I'm wondering about the best way to attach the...
