Our Kitchen Remodel
We started our kitchen remodel i August 2014 and finished the week of Thanksgiving in November 2014.
The cabinet boxes were built using prefinished birch plywood (no interior finishing required). The face frames and doors/drawer fronts were built from knotty alder and stained with General Finishes Colonial Maple gel stain and glazed GF Van Kyke gel stain.

Terry's Liquor Cabinet
A friend asked me to build a liquor cabinet for him. It had to fit in a small spot in his dining room. It would replace a cabinet he already had but didn't like. It was quiet a challenge for me, but we (wife and I) finally got it completed yesterday and delivered it last night.
Originally, he said he would get some granite cut for the bar top and the pull out insert. Then a couple of days ago, he asked if I could make some temporary plywood inserts so they could start using the cabinet immediately. My wife covered the plywood with granite looking contact paper. They love it! I am not sure if they will buy granite or not.
Blum soft close doors and Rockler 10 inch Full extension drawer slides w/over-travel for the drawers. Rustoleum Kona stain and a clear finish over walnut hardwood and plywood.

Here are some pics of my work table. Used in a small work area (one car garage), it has worked very well for me.

Mom's Kitchen Cabinets
I decided to make my mom some cabinets for her kitchen, which is small. I made these from birch plywood with poplar face frames and drawer fronts. Benjamin Moore Impervo Satin was used for the finish. Soft close drawer slides make drawer operation easy peasy. These cabinets replaced a table which my uncle had built for her several decades ago. Her birthday is in April, so this was an early present. And to boot, our granddaughter was there to help out.
Mom doesn’t know which way to turn. Now she has seven empty drawers. She will get used to it.
We had a photo op today with grand daughter, grandma, and great grandma.
Tonight, I am a happy camper, and so is my mom. Feeling pretty good right about now.

Table saw sled
I have been using a shop made table saw sled for the past year and it has worked well for cross cutting panels up to 20 inches wide.
But I am planning to build cabinets for our kitchen this year so I wanted to make an adjustable sled so I can use a dado blade with it.
Here are the pics from the last two days. I dismantled my sled, cut the fence and reused it for the front then made a new main fence. I modified the original base so it could be adjusted as necessary to clear whatever blade(s) I am using. I added a Kreg track and an extension to the fence.
I looks like it should work great.
Yep, I made my own knobs. I needed four, but had none. But I did have some 1/2 inch Baltic Birch. :-)
I based my modifications on the Woodsmith plan. Google Precision Cross Cut sled and you should find it.
Hope you like it.

We built this buffet, and bricked the wall behind it as practice before tackling a complete kitchen remodel.
It turn out nice and I now have the tools and skill to tackle the kitchen this coming year.
Hope you like the pics. I had a little help along the way.
Mike, Pat...and Bella.
