Blade Crazy

  • December 4, 2014


Time for a kitchen upgrade. For the last 18 years we have used a small maple hutch for additional storage on one wall in our kitchen. We out grew the hutch and I decided to tackle my first cabinet and counter installation. Armed with a Ryobi 18 volt drill and 18 volt circular saw I went to work. I wanted to cover as much of the wall as possible so I mounted 2 pantry cabinets with one upper 30 inch and one lower 30 inch cabinet between. In the middle I cut a butcher block counter top to fit. The 18 volt Ryobi saw worked flawlessly. I needed to drill a large 1 1/4" hole for wires through the counter and the 18 volt Ryobi handled the drilling nicely. I used the drill for all of the cabinet mounting screws, counter top brackets and each one of the cabinet pulls I installed. I finished it off with a fresh cut 1/4" sanded plywood on top. It was a fun project and it turned out great. I only wish I had a 18 volt Ryobi nail gun for the kick plate as it was a tight spot for a hammer. I could not have completed this project with out my Ryobi 18 volt cordless tools.
