    I'm installing Ikea sektion cabinets in my kitchen but there is one wall with about a 1/2" hump. I've been weighing out my options and I'd love to hear your opinions.

    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...

    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...

    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?
