A place to put the crockpot!

1.  I cut the toekicks down to accomodate for the height difference we forgot about last week.

2.  We levelled and installed the 30 inch lower cabinet.

3.  I did an adequate job on the veneering for that cabinet.  Not great.

4.  Through sheer force of will, the two of us managed to carry a 300 pound slab of soapstone up from the garage and popped it on top of that bad boy.  Truthfully, he carried a much greater proportional share, but I carried enough of the weight to have me huffing and puffing and feeling a wee bit lightheaded the rest of the day.

So here you go – another glimpse of the future kitchen!  And we now have a place to put the crockpot, so it is CHICKEN GUMBO for dinner tonight!!!

The dining room floor was a waystation until we were ready.  I slipped my hands out of my gloves so we could lay it down.

    it looks beautiful. I am sure that with the drawers and doors your adequately veneered cabinet will look just fine. Can you use wood putty and then a touchup pen for any cuts that weren’t perfect?

    Oh yeah, and those red hands look very chapped and spooky.

    I’m in the process of finding the right touch-up pen and the right color putty. I’ve tried a few colors and haven’t quite hit it yet. There are blend pencils too – got pretty close with one of those. My only concern is that I need to test it on scrap veneer because all of the places I need to actually apply it are right where you see stuff.

    Yes, chapped & spooky. That’s me.
