First, using our awesomely drawn layout, we cut the huge plywood pieces into the proper sizes.
And Cam had to help…he wasn’t too keen on the muffs, though.
Then, of course, we sanded everything….please ignore my horribly cluttered garage.
And Ruth admires our handywork…two stacks of cut and sanded boards.
Next, we put the routed edge on the counter top and fridge top pieces. Then we used a jigsaw to cut the sink hole in the countertop. We also did a bit of experimenting with the oven and microwave door openings with the jigsaw…but more on that later.
It’s hard to tell what I’m doing here, but this is a hand-built router table (my hubby’s design) and I’m running a test piece through it.
Ruth starts her sink hole cut.
And my attempt, next to Ruth’s great example!
