Kitchen Remodel: Part 3 – All about that base




I made the cabinet bases from salvaged pieces of the original kitchen. The bases will house some plumbing and electrical. I held the various sections of the base in place and level with wooden “L” brackets that I also made. Another part of this phase of the project is updating the electrical for the kitchen. This includes moving, adding and grounding the outlets. I also patched a section of the floor.

    Hey Frank. I just want to say that I'm a huge fan of your videos. They are so detailed and fun to watch. I just bought my first home. A fixer-upper and so I'll be watching a lot of your videos during my remodel. Thank you so so much for putting in the time to make these wonderful tutorials. You're an amazing craftsman and such a creative videographer. All the best. James.

    You made cabinet boxes with bottoms that are screwed to a base, and around youtube I've seem people making the bottom and base together (just cutting the toe kick corner). Any thoughts on one over the other?

    This looks so relaxing to me. For some reason making a perfect size anything fit to a space gives me a rewarding feeling. Is that carpentry? Wood work? I think i should go to school for it. I'd love it.

    this is great, I'm in the process of remodeling my kitchen right now. I was wondering how you were going to level the cabinets.

    I had Inspector in mid size city tell me that ALL things in the blue plastic boxes had to be UL listed, no drywall screws in the back or side of the box, lots of fun.

    Goodness me!!! Look at the crosssection of those 110V wires!!! We use those in some VERY serious industrial applications.

    And MAN, I love your idea to use your son as a test subject. If you got it all wrong, the lamp would blow up right into him and there would be lots of sparks from that wall. He'd be scared to death of electricity for the rest of his life. SO FUN! (evil laughter) MWAHAHAHAHA Don't feel too guilty, though. My son usually tests the depth of the water before I cross it in my SUV. Back in Australia, he did that, too, and I swear I only noticed "Crocodiles! Beware!" sign when he was already half way through anyway.

    %99.99 sure you're not allowed to have plugs against the floor. even if you are i'd put a GFCI in it just to be safe.

    Personally I would hate any part of my old kitchen ending up in my new kitchen… 🙂

    I need to raise it by 5 1/2 inches it now sits on about an 1/2 board. Do I have to build an entire box that will sit within box? I am thinking I could use a 1×6 and just have it rest on cabinet HELP!

    You just did a square patch on the finnish floor? Instead of staggering the planks?
