Soft Close Kitchen Cabinet Hinges Review

July 6th, 2010 1 comment

I recently installed a kitchen that had Blum soft close hinges on the cabinets. I found the new feature to be rather easy to install. It is a secondary piece that pushes onto the hinge which makes it close slower. read Soft Close Kitchen Cabinet Hinges Review

Sawzall  From Chicago Power ToolsI bought a 6 amp Chicago Sawzall from Harbor Freight. The reciprocating saw cost about twenty five dollars. In review of my most recent kitchen cabinet remodel jobs that I have used the sawzall on, I have no complaints about this tool.


  • Variable speed trigger
  • Twist lock-blade chuck
  • Rotating handle with five preset positions
  • Seven eights inch stroke length
  • Six Amp
  • Metal and wood cutting blades included

Renovating an Old Oven Cabinet
I recently used the reciprocating saw on an old single oven cabinet that was fabricated out of three quarters inch thick ply-wood and pine. It was a Formica kitchen cabinet. The saw worked great for cutting out the existing shelves and for cutting the face frame of the cupboard. Chicago Reciprocating Saw Review

Formica Bathroom Cabinets

June 24th, 2010 No comments

Formica Bathroom Cabinets There are many advantages to having Formica flat door style bathroom vanity cabinets. There are also disadvantages as well. In this article, I will list some of the pros and cons of having bathroom cupboards fabricated out of plastic laminate. This style cupboard is generally made out of Melamine board for the boxes, drawer parts and sometimes the doors. Usually there’s a combination of Melamine, Masonite plywood, pine and laminate that make up the final product. Some of the cheaper lines of cupboards appear to be manufactured out of plastic laminate, but in reality the outer coating is vinyl. We see this type of construction a lot in cabinets that come ready to assemble (RTA) in a box. They are cheaply made and affordable.

Ready To Assemble Cabinets Durability

January 14th, 2010 No comments

In most cases Read To Assemble (RTA) desks, computer centers, kitchen cabinets and storage cupboards are made from cheap materials. Even though at first glance they may appear to look nice, over the course of time they will eventually begin to show apparent signs of wear and tear. Except in cases where the furniture is all real wood or ply –wood parts. In such a case the RTA cupboards should be able to withstand the most serious abusive conditions. read Ready to Assemble Cabinets
