We’re doing a kitchen reno, and that means tearing everything out and starting from scratch. We went to price out cabinets, and, holy cow! They were going to be $15,000.00 big smackeroos. That is more than 1/2 our budget, so out of the question.
We’ve decided we will have to build them ourselves. Luckily, my husband does come from a family of woodworkers.
We purchased a very cool tool called a Kreg Foreman. http://www.elitetools.ca/en/product/foreman-pocket-hole-machine-kreg-db210-5429/.
I haven’t tried this one yet, but I have been practicing with the smaller Kreg Jig. I’ve made a work bench, and now I am working on making my daughter a rolling island for her kitchen. It’s not perfect yet (need to working on making things square) but it’s getting there. I have to say, I really love the process.
I have to mention, when I went to use my Kreg Jig, someone had been into the box and took a bunch of the pieces. I contacted the company to see if they had replacement parts for the items missing. Next thing I know I have a parcel at my door containing all of the pieces I listed, no charge. Is that customer service, or what?
This whole thing started with replacing our door. I found this incredible door on a used building supply site. My wonderful hubby shows up with it about a week later. It’s one of those things that every time you pass, you have to stop and admire it.
A little trim, and it’s going to be perfect. Can’t wait.
The one thing about doing all these renos, is my sewing room has been moved about 4 times. I have to move it one more time to get the flooring done, but then it will go back and stay there.
