I have tried to take a day of rest once a week this past month. It has not been easy for me to rest. However, this past week I decided to do some projects at my house on my day of rest. I began the morning by getting everything out to do the construction projects.
One of the most important parts of working on construction projects around the house is the fuel needed to complete the project. This day I decided to make a bacon onion pizza to fuel my projects.
Doing wood projects in my apartment is an experience because I don’t have a garage or shop to do the project in. Instead I use my kitchen table and family room as my wood shop.
This is the first time that I made a drawer myself. As I test fitted the drawer cabinet into the space in the kitchen cabinets I found that when they installed the kitchen cabinet they didn’t make the cabinet square so I had to actually had to take apart my drawer cabinet and modify parts to make it fit.
After modifying the original design to fit the odd shaped opening I am thankful that everything fit and looks good. I am unsure of how I want to finish this project but I am thankful that I remembered that this might tip once I fill the drawer with stuff. Because I did not secure the cabinet insert to the rest of the kitchen cabinets I had to build two braces to keep a full drawer from tipping the drawer insert.
The braces work very well and the full drawer fully extended does not cause the insert to move. I am thankful for the opportunity that I have had to take a day of rest and complete this project along with a few others. I am looking forward to the next day of rest now.
