Small Kitchen update

I posted this over at LJ, but it fits in here nicely as well. Hopefully I will be posting further updates to the kitchen cabinets sooner rather then later…

When we had our kitchen redone after moving in we thought we choose exactly what we would need. Unfortuanlty we were wrong. While all of our cabinets came with roll out shelves they are quite small and did not do well for holding stuff like cookie sheets and a collection of stoneware.
So after seeing a few different ideas on LJs I came up with a new drawer to replace an existing one. The new one also leaves me room for further seperation if I choose to later since as I was putting it together I decided against using all the dowels right now.
Since I am not yet accomplished at dovetails, I decided to once again use my Kreg Jig but this time plugged the holes then cut and sanded the plugs flush. makes for a nice looking joint (I think) not to mention strength.

You did a nice job. I like those extra “do-hickeys” in a kitchen.

I’m in the process of trying to regain space in our cabinets, and your project is a prime example of what I’m attempting. Very nice job – hopefully my results will be as impressive!
