  1. It's not too tight, and more than exceeds the manufacturers recommendation of 3/8" on the sides. It's 38" wide, so many contemporary fridges will fit with sufficient side space.
  2. There is a walk-in pantry/laundry room to the left of the fridge. The surround on the fridge is really just for looks - with some storage above. The sides of the surround are not really big enough to do anything with, and I like the symmetry, so I don't want to shove the fridge in either direction, and I really want to keep it off the left wall.
  3. I guess I wasn't clear enough. While I appreciate the feedback regarding the esthetics and space utilization, I'm really looking for feedback on the design of the carcasses. I'll be gluing and using Kreg pocket screw joinery.
  4. Like I said, I was gifted a nice pile of high quality 1/2" ply.
  5. The doors and drawer fronts will be 3/4. It's the carcasses that will be constructed from 1/2". My research shows that 1/2" ply for the carcasses is common. Also when you put two cabinets side by side and screw them together that is 1". So it's pretty solid.
  6. I did upload the model to 3DWarehouse. It's titled, "Shane's Kitchen base cabinets".
  7. These are just the base cabinets. The cupboards are simpler and straight forward and I’m feeling pretty good about them. The Bases will be constructed from ½”ply. The drawers and doors will be ¾” ply. I will be using Blum glides and hinges - under mount, soft close for the drawers, and soft close blumotion full overlay for the doors. The sink base will have a tilt tray at the drawer location, and an under mount Blano sink. The counter will be a 3cm quartz top. The kick plates will be constructed separately and the bases will sit on them. The kitchen will have an exposed concrete floor. I can't attach the Sketchup file, so I can send that to anyone who wants to review.
  8. Hello, I'm rebuilding my home after a wildfire took out much my town last summer - Talent, OR. I'm going to build the cabinets myself. I've built quite a few over the years, mostly with face frames. I'm gonna make these in the European style - faceless. I'm looking for someone who has experience building this style of cabinets to review my plans in Sketchup. Give the plans a thorough look, and provide any suggestions. I've been gifted a bunch of nice 1/2" ply, which is new for me as well, but from what I've read it seems to be a common material for cabinets. Any takers?
  9. I was told it's because the automobile manufacturers scooped up all the metal last year, when production dropped off due to COVID.
  10. just sitting around collecting dust? A plane that desires to be used? A personal desire to help a guy out by selling it? I'm not looking to refurbish one, not time for that right now. I'd pay a reasonable market price for a decent Veritas, Lie Nielsen, etc... jointer plane. I really want another bevel up Veritas, but they won't be in stock again until December.
  11. I can't stop staring at the red triangle and the date. How am I supposed to rebuild my kitchen and other cabinets without tools? This metal shortage is really starting to piss me off.
  12. Indeed, he is quite the craftsman. I'd probably have to drop my entire insurance settlement to get one of those. I'm not saying it's not worth every penny he charges for one, whatever that may be, but I'm guessing it's not within my budget. I'm also rough on benches, so I'd be afraid to go near one of those things with my tools and bohemian work style.
  13. I had just built a nice split top Roubo style bench with a pair of twin turbos that I lost in the fire. I'm thinking, I might at this point buy a bench, as I'd rather focus on making furniture to replace some of what I lost. Other than Benchcrafted and Sjöbergs who else should I be looking at?
