Kitchen Work XXI: Peninsula Cabinets

June 22, 2010

With the first set of base cabinets and counter all nicely hooked together and in place, it was time to focus on the rest of the base cabinets, including the peninsula where the sink would be located.  The first two cabinets where just like the previous set, one against the wall and then the corner cabinet, but after that the cabinets just wander off out into the middle of the kitchen with no wall to hook them to.  So at that point I needed to figure exactly where it was they would be going.

Mapping out the peninsula.

With the location for the peninsula worked out, it was time to remove the sink (ah the joys of doing without in the kitchen!) and screw 2X2’s to the floor to attach the cabinets to (since there was no wall).

Peninsula cabinet foundation, with gaps for plumbing.

With that in place I made a cardboard template of the plumbing holes, transferred it to the sink base cabinet crossed my fingers and made the holes.  And to my shocked amazement, it actually worked.

Can this be right? Only 1 hole cut for each pipe plumbed up through the cabinet?

So I hooked that cabinet to the corner and installed the last peninsula cabinet as well.

Base cabinets all installed. (And see the already installed cabinets and counters in the back there, Jennifer?)

Once that was done, it was time to move on to the counters.
