Default Kitchen Remodel Finally Done!!

It has been about a year since I started this project. Basically it was just an old kitchen that needed updated. I ripped out the old bulkhead above the old cabinets, removed all the cabinetry did some ceiling repair work, took the front window apart and installed new glass and replaced all the wood casing and then new crown moldings, floor and door casings, newly hung door etc. The new cabinets are unfinished oak that I stained and poly'd ( man did I get sick of that), made some crown molding for the uppers and the end caps for the cabinets I made from unfinished oak doors that I cut to size to mimick higher end cabinets. I put 2 cabinets together for a work center/breakfast bar type thing. Countertops are corian except the breakfast bar which is laminate. I learned a ton doing this kitchen, learned to do some plumbing work like putting shut offs and moving the copper around etc. Applicances are all new. About the only thing I didn't do in this kitchen is the floor... I left that to the pros. Don't blame me for the color, that's what the boss wanted and since she signs all power tool vouchers, that is what she got Now I can get to some shop work. Link is below and thanks for looking!

Corey,

I personally know how very hard you have worked on this project and at times I even felt I was holding the other end of the board up for you to work your magic on. You have done the most professional looking DIY job I have ever seen and a big Kudos to you on it's final completion. I know the family must be proud of the present you gave them of yourself and I am sure they are equally as proud to have a place to eat again

A beautiful and superb job my friend and you will enjoy it for many years to come.

The only thing missing still is a big pot of deer stew..... Eric????

Thanks Noddy, Bob and Bob. Very much relieved and satisfied to have it finally done. It was prolonged by several months due to disc problem in my back and spring and summer travel for work but it is done! Bob I do feel that way as well and thanks to you and Bobj for your encouragement and Bobj was the one who talked me into cutting into those pipes and taking that on. Deer stew... how about deer loins He got one last night. The biggun he lost the track. This was a doe... so no pen blanks but he has given me a few in that past Thanks again guys!

What a transformation Corey and so much cheaper than buying a new home! I think you deserve a short rest to recuperate before getting stuck into some new boxes.

Thanks Harry! I am celebrating buy having a turnathon this next weekend. The wife is headed on a all girls shopping trip to the Ozarks and I will have 4 days to myself. I need to get some Christmas gifts started so I have 15 pen blanks started ( cut and drilled- still need to glue the tubes) that I plan to make and a couple other turning projects. That's the nice thing about the lathe, it's the one tool you can do a lot of projects from start to finish in one day. Then I have so much I want to do in boxes...

Four days on you're own and the best you can think of is making pens! What a lack of imagination! (only joking)
