Updating pine kitchen cabinets
With the second cabinet lifted and held in place, the installers clamp it to the first cabinet using quick-release bar clamps.
This will hold it stable while it is being fastened to the wall and corner cabinet.
After a series of careful measurements, the carpenters drill holes in the floor of the sink base cabinet and cut out the larger openings using a saber saw.
With the holes cut, the sink base cabinet is carefully lowered into position so that the pipes extend up through the holes (Image 1).
The filler strip is glued to the cabinet using wood glue.
A pilot hole is then drilled so that the filler strip can be further secured to the cabinet using wood screws (Image 1).
After measuring and leaving space for the stove, the carpenters install a narrow base cabinet.
They attach it to the wall between the spaces for the stove and the refrigerator.
With the first two cabinets attached together, the installers secure them to the wall with screws (Image 4).
The doors will be replaced once the cabinets are mounted in place.
