Cabinetry

I'm about to start installing cabinetry on Brunhilde. Yes, pix will follow. I've decided not to go with pre-assembled cabinets and disassembled cabinets just cannot be found. SO, I'm going with 2x2s for framing and 1/4 BC ply and Kreg jigs and make them big enough for double milk crates (wonder where I'll get them ) and the microwave and trash can and .

This will help greatly, because, even with the back door, getting completed cabinets inside would be a struggle.

I looked into preassembled Home Depot cabinets, and the base line ones were kinda of flimsy. I ended up going with disassembled cabinets from Ikea. Cost a little less than HD, and they are easy to assemble.

You can't get much more disassembled than 2x2s and plywood. Screws, saws and drills, I can handle. Insert Tab A into Slot B -- NO!

Watch craigslist for people doing remodels Plus there's places that go in & remove cabinets & appliances from homes that are going to be remodels or leveled, Look for whole house recyclers.

Here is a example from a email list I'm on that I got 3 days ago, $400.00 for all the cabinets you see in the pic.

Nope. Just keeping them from growing roots. That device is called a Kartoffelhorde and I have one.

Watch Craigslist? NOT ONLY NO, but... I also won't go to Habitat For Humanity store. They want premium prices for used material.

Build them. It is super easy. Make a plywood box using a kregg jig then make a wooden face. Easy as pie. All you need is a steady hand a circular saw, a craig jig , screws, glue, plywood, and face lumber (boards poplar, maple, oak, or evwn pine).message me if you need more info.

Kreg Jig question...

Anybody found screws that work? Besides their proprietary screws!
