continued.....I had planned to throw together some simple drawers made of plywood and just shoved in to the hole (no slides), but wasn't sure exactly how much space I was going to have. A buddy of mine at work had just finished a kitchen remodel and had some Glide-Rite (read fancy) drawer slides leftover, so he offered them to me. Also, he has a Dado setup on his tablesaw and insisted that we build the drawers properly. With no experience at this I accepted. Here are the guides installed (it wound up being easiest to mount them flat on the bottom intead of on the sides, since I had plenty of drawer depth
The drawers themselves were great fun to build and not as difficult as I imagined. Properly built drawers are way strong too
They came together great and I decided to just build one huge drawer for the bottom of my cabinet
Here's a shot with the local building code inspector looking bored with my work
I'm pretty pleased with the finished cabinet. Lots of storage and the layout with the furnace/etc. worked out great (pardon the masking tape I hadn't removed from painting)
I also did this bottom fold down cabinet under the fridge, which gives me access to the back of the inverter wiring and the fridge/tv plug
Under the kitchen sink I came up with this to store dishes or boxed food, and also give me access to my water fill, which is a 7 gal Aquatainer now, with no outside fill.
And finally, a finished floor shot. This laminate did great, probably my best flooring job ever. I have done some lousy work, perhaps I'm improving.
