    Like the word epic. Here's a pic of the corner cabinet by the dining room. The cabinet on the right is what you see when you come in the from the back door.

      More boring pics. This is over the fridge. Yes, he forgot to make the shelf. Rolf, there are 50 Kreg screws holding this together. My son made the mistake of stopping by between jobs today and Bruce had him help with a dry fit. Of course, it was a perfect fit.

            Bruce thanks everyone for the compliments. He said it is very stressful. I think the name of the stress is Betty.

              I just had a thought, when I watch all of these renovation shows on HGTV and they take one swing with a hammer and the entire cabinet comes down. When we are all gone and the new owners want to remodel boy will they be in for a rude awakening when their hammers bounce back into their faces. That will teach them not to mess with beautiful work.

                  Bruce has one base cabinet ready to put together. I think he has hit a brick wall and needs a break. He's been working almost everyday since he started this project. Hopefully we can still make it to Texas.

                    The work area is all cleaned up, Bruce is out of plywood and he is ready for vacation!! The base cabinet is finished but it is out of square - 1/32"!! Told him not to worry, our walls are worse than that. He is at the sawmill this morning for his weekly "thing", whatever that may be!! Last week he came home with "scrap" cedar from a tree they milled for a church. He said the middle board was 24" wide. Can't wait to see my Texas babies!! Been too long.

                      Bruce finally restarted the cabinets today. He was at the county fair yesterday helping with the sawmill. His problem today - if he screws the bottom of the cabinet together on the under side, he won't be able to unscrew in case water gets under it!!! If he screws it from the top, you will see the screws. It's a floor cabinet on the floor with a drawer, who will see it? Can we say overthink? We did order 20 100 lb soft close soft shut drawer slides and brackets for $210. They were originally $19 each but with bulk buying and the wood club discount they came to $9 each plus brackets. Not bad. The place is in Elkridge so he will be picking them up saving $14 in shipping.

                            The price is for 20 sets. He did a google search for the ones he wanted and was contacted by the warehouse by us. I am thinking he got jobber price since the sales slip show the name of the woodworking club. I was planning on at least $400 for them as we are putting slide outs on all the lower cabinets except one. And they are are soft close self close!!

                                Almost. I still think he needed a stitch but he is stubborn. He is at the sawmill this morning.
