I agree that rental drum sanders can leave bumps in the floor where the sandpaper seam is on these units. A square buff is more user freindly but not as aggressive. With a square buff be careful not to jump grits too soon because you can spend a lot of time with a finer grit when you should have used a more agressive grit for a little longer. Tough call when making the judgement to switch grits. A bit safer option.

Brock, your kitchen was 1000% better looking than mine BEFORE you started the remodeling! :lol: Now your off the charts ... :D

There's no hope for my house. No point in me wasting money on it. That just leaves me more money to play with! :cheers: :shots: :drunk:

dann757,

Free is always a good price. Sometimes we use what we can. Id love to spend 10-20 thousand and have a kitchen built exactly the way i want it, but i guess we have to be realistic.

----------------------------------


i will also try to rent a sander that isnt a drum sander. Ill see what i can come up with

I order a Senco air compressor with brad nailer from cposenco.com yesterday and had it overnighted to me and it arrived this morning. This little air compressor is amazing. Im getting the new wainscoting up in now time. I should of bought one of these years ago.

http://www.cposenco.com/products/pc0947r.html

So far like i said i have the wainscoting up, all of the old cabinets out. The plumber came last night and cut out the huge ass cast iron sink and we also had to cut the water lines in the regular kitchen sink to get the cabinet out. I also hung some wall cabs and the pantry cabs last night when i was waiting for the plumber to show up. So once i finish the wainscoting i will stain it and clear coat it then ill will start trying to fit in the base cabs. I also lots of trim work to do.

I only put new wainscoting to just a few inches below where the new countertop and old stove will be.

Are the light color cabinets hickory ? I saw some nice hickory at the local home store, their are nice if the grain color doesn't vary to much. Always seems the samples are different than what you get in the end.

besides the first day when my wife helped for a few hours it has been all me. But she has been working long days. and id rather do it myself. She doesnt know how to do any of this, maybe ill have her help me move some cabs around, but thats about it. She likes demo ...

I would like to know what you guys think of this. I started to wonder If it would make sense to paint the cherry kitchen cabinets since they dont match the dark wood we have in the kitchen now. I was thinking maybe Black or a dark green color.

Please let me know if this is a really stupid idea

If you paint that pretty grained wood,I will come to Penna & shoot you :sick: now back to reality--it is your kitchen & you must make that decision--I know that restaining project could seem over whelming-- :idea: I would even consider,I said consider!! painting the cupboards,but,taking the doors off & stripping & re- staining them-there are strippers out there that are real easy & safe to use-you don't have to have them done yesterday---set them in the kitchen & look at them---try doing a little section & experiment--if for no other reason,if you ever decided to re-sell it would enhance your kitchen 100%---bottom line,you & your wife need to think on it seriously & do what is most attractive to you 2------I'm sure whatever you decide it will look outstanding :D

Painting cherry cabinets?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Is this the sign of the apocalypse I have been waiting for?!?!?!?!?!?

I realize this is your kitchen and I am not on the decorating committee (by the way you probably aren't on that committee either your wife just hasn't told you that yet!), but really, if you want painted cabinets, sell those cherry ones you have, take about 1/2 the money and go shopping at Ikea for cabinets you can paint! :)

Don't paint them. My dsl is down so I can't type to much on the
iPhone but 1 st sand the floors. Clean and clear them
you will see the project rise up from there. I would
trade the gal of minwax dark back in for a lighter more
cherry complimentary look for the wainscoat?
Then try the cabs in there. I removed all doors and drawers,
small hand machine sanded them and found by trial and
error the right stain. It's loads of fun fun fun!!

my wife and i set some of the cabs in place, and think they look alright the way they are. So far its been a nightmare trying to get the cabs to sit level since our floors arent anywhere near level. I still have a ways to go before the cabs are set and screwed in place and the counter is on.
