Productive day for a Monday!

Finally replaced the upper cabinets and made up the corner ends which were a little tricky to figure out.

Installing them without help was another hurdle but at the end i got it done.



For the end corners I made templates and also wanted to make sure they could easily be removed. Seems like a good spot for some small speakers or a secret stash, lol



The side panel is the only part not glued in but held with screws for easy access.




Moving along!



I was gonna built more cabinets above the back door but they'd be a concussion hazard. Instead I simply mounted a flat angled board and I'll either attach a net all across or make fabric pockets. Either way, they'll double as head protection.



And my buddy Jay came to give me a hand at wiring the lights. They can be turned on/off either from my phone or a switch by the electrical panel. Now I'll be able to see inside the cabinets at night or simply use them as ambiant lighting



Next I'll be installing some led strips under the cabinets for proper lights. Those will come with a remote control, can be dimed and have various colors.

Anyhow, I'm a satisfied owner! !!

Looking good. Who's undercounter LEDs will you be using? I like the ones in the cabinet.

Have also bought from SuperBright. Reasonable prices and quick shipping as well as a huge assortment.

Quick little project, added a net on the new back board above the doors. Perfect place to stash your clothes when going to bed.



Pricey little project. Now you see it...



Now you don't!



My rear ac was in the way to finish building my upper cabinets and was leaking. I got a local shop to cap the rear lines, test the main system and refill it. Now I got cold ac Not cheap and not really needed here in BC but should be nice for the kids when we travel down south or to the east coast!

Good timing too since my wife wants us to hit the road mid March for 2 weeks. She said the closest place to get warm weather. Vegas???

In the mean time, my next project will be a major one!!! Here's a clue

Morning!

While waiting for the bigger roof project I took care of some smaller but well overdue projects.

First one was pretty simple, wife request... a nuke. It will get mounted under the driver side upper cabinet (by sink). That keeps it accessible but frees up the countertop. I'm waiting to do the roof before mounting it since all those upper cabinets will need to come off for that project.




Next, the electrical panel cabinet.

This one had been nagging me for a while but I couldn't decide how to do it. At first I wanted to have the electrical door flip down and double as a table (for my kids on the rear seats) but although a good idea it would have reached only one of the two seats and the kids would be fighting for it, no good.

So I kept it simple and will just build a stoweable table for the front.

This is what I needed to conceal:



And what I came up with, first in the process:



And kinda finished:




I still have to clean it up a little and I may also add lights inside but so far so good. Now I need to tackle the upper front cabinets (similar to the side ones). This is where I'm talking about...



OK, enough typing, time for some cutting! Ciao!


Cheers
David

Great craftsmanship. One question though, will the inverter get enough airflow to keep cool?

It crossed my mind and considered drilling some holes on the doors but I rarely use it and if I do I'll simply crack open the door
