Re: the akitabus

dan, it will be chalked and sealed after grouting and yes on the backsplash, either stainless or i might tile up a few inches 6" ? with the same tile.... I should have raised my window just a little higher but that would have opened up a whole new can of worms with the structual members of the roof... I know smaller widow....


thanks for the compliment.

Re: the akitabus

Tile grouted and sealed, stainless steel cut for surround around stove and working on upper cabinets. Direct and to the point, all comments are welcome.

Soon I can post the finished galley cabinets have to get all the door fronts on .

Re: the akitabus

I'm impressed with the clean lines and tight scribing on those upper cabinets. Well done!

Re: the akitabus

Amazing work for someone who never built a cabinet before. Heck, it is excellent work for someone even if they had built a cabinet before.

Re: the akitabus

Thanks Accordian, I have done some wood working but never have I built cabinets... its kinda fun once you get into it a little ways.


We had a local company cut some 18 gauge stainless for us that we are going to surround the stove area with. Once that is done i can stain the cabinets and move on with the other projects that never seem to end.


till next time
