    A few months back, Sweetie and I installed a new backsplash in our kitchen. After multiple samples and trips to tile shops, we finally found the perfect tile: pencil- cut slate. At 17 bucks a square foot, it was a bit more than we thought we'd be spending, and, because it was pencil cut, it was ...

    A very Happy Friday to you!   I'm so delighted today to share with you one of my favorite sawdust-free projects with you that we've done on the Momplex.  Of course, I'm partial to all things made of wood - but really, the same basic skills that help you make wood projects nice, translate to other mediums - like tile! read more

    For me, the sawdust is where it is AT. Wood is my medium of choice.  I love how easy to cut wood is, how naturally beautiful it is.  I love how it smells when you work with it, I love how functional it becomes when you use it.  I love that wood is renewable, and while it renews, it renews our air.  I love working with wood. But while taking on a Momplex, we've had to work with alot of other mediums.  Styrofoam blocks, poured concrete, and drywall.  Drywall was definitely my least favorite. read more

  4. Operation Remove 8" of Cabinet

    Blog

    FromAna-White.com

    Hi everyone! Happy New Year! Thank you for welcoming our son to the Knockoffwood family!  He's doing wonderful, and I promise, I'll be sharing some more photos and details with you soon. And I thought ... hey! I could get more storage and make the cabinet above the range a whole 8" larger! More storage for Grandma!!! So we built a cabinet for the space, using the minimum clearance specified in the instruction manual ... And then we layed all the cabinets out in a line, and I thought it might be a little odd that the microhood now sits a full 6-7" lower than the bottom of the other wall cabinets. Have you ever seen that? A microhood sitting down that low compared to the other wall cabinets mounted at standard height? It just didn't seem right - here's where the microhood would have sat had we used the taller wall cabinet we originally built. No pot taller than 14" woudl have fit under it. It was exactly 2" above the top of the range backsplash (as the instruction manual recommended for minimum clearance). It just didn't seem right. The Ram and I went back and forth on whether we should live with it or fix it ... it does meet standards ... but it doesn't meet our standards .... What to do? Build another wall cabinet? Nah! We are going to operate on the cabinet. Or at least try to. We'll just cut the cabinet down with table saw! We of course removed any screws or nails on or near the cut line, and then just set the fence, and let 'er rip! And then flipped it over and cut one side ... And then the other ... And then we removed the bottom from the piece we cut off - we thought we might have to cut a new bottom because it was glued on, but lucky for us, the glue was in a forgiving mood. And then we reattached the bottom to the now shorter cabinet. Then we ripped the face frame down to the new size, And reconstructed it too. And then we reattached the face frame, and the moment of truth - was it worth the risky operation? Much better!!! I can work with that! Definitely worth making things right. Just imagine that microhood 8" (what we took off the cabinet) lower. It would have haunted me for The. Rest. Of. My. Life. And just so you don't have to chop a too big cabinet down to size (not recommended!) I'll put plans together for a standard 30x12x12 wall cabinet. So what would you have done? Live with it, build a new cabinet, or operate on it? XO Ana + Family read more
