Great to know. I will certainly keep in mind.

Saw this guy on Barnwood Builders. Some really cool projects that he has done.

Did you use a specific program to design the boxes? We can't find much we like or that fits in our tiny 100yr old kitchen.... and we can't afford custom.

Prior to Demo I built a temp kitchen in the basement with a stove, sink, stainless counter.

Regarding the "custom" boxes. I took my dimensions to a cabinet maker with a CNC programmer and cutter. He charged me about $800 for the engineering then $50 a sheet to cut the plywood. It was well worth it. I have 19 cabinets in the kitchen. With my new job I have only been able to work on it about once a week.

My tiny beach cottage's kitchen renovation. I worked on this most Sundays and some Saturdays this March through last weekend. I did all of the work myself, although some days I hired a helper.

Kitchen Remodel - Part I - Album on Imgur

Its not finished yet and have decided to take the summer off so that my family and friends can use the house. There is still a lot to do and mistakes to be fixed. I will resume in September.

Album is quite long.

Hopefully someday there will be a 90 ST parked outside of this house...

House has been an absolute monster undertaking turns out, which a newborn and a 20 month old make really interesting. I wont even post pics of the boring stuff like new septic, new cellar stairs, repairing rim joist and sill plates, painting the house, new windows, new shed, new lawn, new doors, new landscaping you name it.

I'll just post the cool stuff like projects with my wood

First i needed a step from our Sunroom/office/utility room to our kitchen/dining area.

3.5" thick x 14"w x 6' slab of red oak , kept the bark. Dog Approves

Second, just finished today, a nice long bench for the same room to put shoes under, bags on, sit on while you put shoes on etc. basically a 9' long, 17" wide 1.5" thick solid cherry "shit shelf" with a live edge.

Really cool about the cherry is there were a bunch of grubs under the bark, so when removed you get left with all the "tunnel marks from these grubs doing their thing

Two projects on deck. A coat hanger with shelf to go above the bench made from more live edge cherry

and a his and her desk for me and the wire made from some book matched cherry slabs Have 4 slabs total. Each are 15-18"w, 2.5" thick, 11' long. Desk will only be about 6' or 7' long though. Hope to use the left over for end tables.


If anyone needs some rough cut lumber i got more than i will ever use. Been selling it cheap on craigslist. up to 18" wide red oak boards, hickory, and some cherry left.

Massive Cherry, white oak, and red oak beams that would be great for a mantel

and slew of live edge "off cuts" for various smaller projects.

Had a deck built this summer off the back of my house. Since my driveway wraps around the back to where the garage is, had to use steel for the fame.
