So as I near the end of this project, I’ve decided not to buy any more wood. I have odd-shaped birch ply, hardwood and pine trim of various dimensions and even leftover components from Sparta’s distant past. This cabinet upon which I will place my stove is a perfect, albeit janky, example of using what’s on hand.
This box is topped with three leftover 3/4″ thick scraps, including the largest which was the original kitchen counter-top return, now cut to size. I will have to stick a couple wedges of 1/4″ Hardiboard under the right front corner.
I scored the leftover tile from the Restore store. $6.50. Cristina doesn’t like the color but she was out of town and I did not consult with her. Oh well. She wants black tile but that will show too much dirt, ash, etc..
I won’t actually install this stove until I get to my destination.
Got the bed stained and polyed but forgot the ends. Ooops. I am getting a bit sloppy.
