That's quite an ambitious undertaking but it looks solid to me. So you're going to replace the bottom cabinets with knotty pine?

I have a similar project on my honey do list that centers on hanging a microwave by my little old self. I have to replace the cabinet above our stove too though but the vent fan is hardwired in.

Nice. Laser level or old-school bubble?

You're inspiring me, FTM. I got a $100 gift card from Lowe's for Father's Day that I haven't spent yet because I can't decide on what to spend it on. I think I may just blow it on a new 12" high unfinished oak cabinet to replace the 18" one over my stove. Hell, I may but TWO and replace the one over the refrigerator. Hopefully I won't pull something getting that microwave hung by myself.

Hopefully my wife will show her appreciation and not say something like "GREAT! It only took you two years to get off your lazy ass and do it!" If not then at least I'll have the satisfaction of taking the old countertop microwave that's on death's door outside and smashing it to pieces like this:




...then I can begin to think about taking anger management classes!

FTM, beautiful cedar. I replaced the windowsills in our house with cedar. Stained them with Teak oil and put that bar-top clear epoxy on them.

Those cabinets look wonderful. Now, if I only had a planer...
