I don't know how I missed this thread, or the fact that we are from the same town! I wish I would have caught it earlier... I have a jointer, and would have been more than happy to help you square up the walnut stock!

Your renovation came out amazing, and judging by what looks like heart pine I saw in some of your pictures, I'm curious as to where this house is located. Downtown? Wagner Terrace? Either way, it looks incredible. Job well done.

Send me a PM if you want some of my contact info.

Thanks Sean. We've definitely learned a lot over the years working on this house and FINALLY just got our final inspection passed. And I'm sure my brother is still laughing at me for thinking it would be a short one year renovation.

Yeah, having the jointer would have been real nice. I did have a guy in the charlestownewoodturners club offer to let me use his, but at the time I thought it would be more of a pain to haul all that wood over to his house than to do it the way we did. In hindsight...I'm a doofus.

An updated pic of some more progress with the crown molding and such. still have some details to finish with adding door catches and the island cabinet door hinges, range hood mantel, etc.

Sorry for the random resurfacing of this thread...trying to wake up for wood working dormancy and get the final few kitchen projects done...

Thanks Steve, getting the final inspection was a huge relief.
Ryan, the ceilings are 10ft give or take some waving.

My questions are, what kind of hinge can i use to make the "secret" door in the island work. I want it to be where i can push on the panel and the door will pop open. I looked at some of the hinges that are usually on overlay cabinet doors but they are way too stiff to allow the door to pop open. I tried a piano hinge but it creates too much of a gap and the hinge still shows. So far i'm thinking that may be my best option and i may have to paint the hinge black so it shows less.

The other thing is what to do with my microwave area. I tried making a wood cover like the stainless ones with air vents on top and bottom but it didn't work out too well. Anyone have any ideas on a way to finish that off? People have told me to leave it the way it is, but to me it just looks like it needs something. the microwave is pretty strong and puts out a lot of air so it does need a decent amount of vent space.

I would look into the SOSS barrel style hinges for the secret door. They are a little pricey but wouldn't show when it was closed.

For the microwave, what about a panel that hinges at the top and then slides in above the microwave when you need to use it?

For your "secret door", you could use a euro hinge, and get one that's free swinging. If you have one for overlay, and it has a spring closure, you can defeat it by removing the cam in the arm of the hinge (you can pop it out). The euro hinge will allow the hinge side to back up and hide the gap, with the adjustments available. For the opening and closing use a small touch latch, or a magnetic touch latch.

For the M-wave, a pocket door (AKA flipper door), will work well, if you have enough room.

For the M-wave old style cabinet slide wit a pin an the door, think of it as a garage door with out the side rail.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll check out those hinges. I do have a euro hinge that is stiff so I'll see if I can't finagle it to work like a free swinging one.

Sounds like the slide up door is the unanimous suggestion and it makes sense to me.

Thanks again!!
