Back Mounted Sink Waste by Oliveri

One of the things I always get asked when customers see my display kitchen with the under sink drawers is “How does the waste work?” It’s something I always explain as requiring the back mounted waste kit by Oliveri, or “Opti-Space Connector Kit” This allows for the waste pipe to be mounted flat at the very back of the cabinet, which in turn means that a drawer can be installed into the cabinet. The drawer will need to be around 100mm shorter in depth than usual due to the waste still be required. Also if you’re floor waste comes up in the middle to front of the cabinet, it should ideally be returned under the kick board with two ninety degree bends so that it can be brought up at the back of the cabinet as well. This can also be achieved by using a double bowl connector, then fitting

Kitchen Checklist

I was looking through The Starting Point Queensland edition and came across the section on Kitchen Checklist which has some good tips on designing your kitchen. Most of these points cabinet makers generally take into consideration when designing your kitchen and we generally also take into consideration whats cost effective in renovating. A lot of the time, relocating appliances to make the working space more user friendly can be costly as well. So please take this into consideration when trying to work with this checklist. The checklist Has the kitchen been designed so that the food preparation area is set apart from the main thoroughfare? Have all stoves, cook tops and ovens been kept clear of corners of the room and also is there enough space beside the cook top to swing your pot handles around? Will opening doors on appliances be inhibited by the adjoining cabinets of walls? This

Leveling up cupboards

Tools required: Level, Chisel, Block of wood and various packers from 1mm thick to 10mm thick First grab your level and lay it across the back edge, take note of which end the bubble floats to. If it is in the middle, between the two lines then the back edge is level, if it has floated to one side, then that is the high point. From the high point, set your level from that corner to the front corner, take note of which end the bubble floats to again. If the bubble is at the same end as your last high point, then this is where you need to start levelling the cupboard from. If the bubble floats to the opposite end to the previous high point, then you need to repeat the process from this new one. Once you have determined exactly which corner is the highest point, you then need

Power Safety Tools

I remember when I was an apprentice using an Electric Plane to plane down the side of a vanity benchtop. As an apprentice I was silly enough to be wearing a long shirt that wasn’t tucked into my pants. While I was planing the side down my shirt came to close to the Electric Plane and got dragged into the blades. Lucky for me, it dragged in enough of the shirt to jam up the blades and stopped them from spinning anymore, otherwise I would’ve had a got chunck of my stomach torn out. So this is one of the reasons why I thought some safety tips for power tools would be a good thing to write about. 1. Always tuck in loose clothing and preferably don’t wear lose fitting clothing. 2. If you wear rings on your fingers, remove them whilst using power tools. 3. Wear saftey goggles whenever using tools

Measuring Up A Room

Please not, I will be talking in metric with these measurements. When measuring up a room, its always a good idea to have a decent tape measure. There are alot of cheap ones on the market and most of them have bad clips at the front. I personally always buy Stanley Tape Measures. Start by drawing out the room on a piece of paper, show all walls, windows, doorways and positions of the architraves. If the walls are very long it is best to grab someone else to give you a hand. Start with the walls that are open at one end, place your tape measures clip at the internal wall and measure all the way to the other end. Take note of the wall length on your drawings. Do the same on any other open ended walls. For walls that are between each other eg: a U-shaped room, have someone
