Do you ever help people who ae apartment dwellers? That's exactly what I need.
buy some pegboard and cut it to fit. The holes in a piece of pegboard are all evenly spaced and a piece of pegboard is super cheap.
Thank you. I have an alcove in my (tiny) kitchen I am trying to turn into usable storage. This was very helpful not just in showing how to build the unit but also finish it out. I have an issue with my space I hope someone can help me with. My space is 16" deep - wider than standard upper cabinets, shallower than standard base cabinets. Is any way to use all this space and still use stock cabinets? I don't want to use the shallower upper cabinets as I will lose lots of storage.
I'm a visual learner and this video makes it seems so do-able! I CAN DO IT! But I have a question about staining/varnishing the piece. Would you want to stain/varnish each piece separately before you assemble it, or wait until it's all done? I would think it would be easier to do the finishing molding already stained/varnished, but how do the 'experts' do it? Look forward to your reply...
Love this video and using as inspiration to rebuild built-ins surrounding my fireplace. Regarding access to the electrical outlets, Ron states holes are cut out to gain access to the electrical outlets. Therefore, I'm guessing they measured where the access point would be in the back of the cabinet then cut out a rectangle to gain direct access to the outlet(s). Then, you fish the cables, plugs down behind the cabinet, catch them and plug them into their respective receptacles.
Thanks Ron! Used your idea of using kitchen cabinets for the bottom of our entertainment unit and then build towards creating boxes. It turned out gorgeous!! (And we are newbies at building things). Thanks sooo much for your great videos!!
this is something i need to do!!!!!!!we do have desame wall perfect for the build in entertainment thats for sure....this would be my 1213 project :) thank you for giving us idea how do it ourself im sure am gonna give myself a tap in a back once i finish!!!!
