  1. Upgrade your cabinet drawers with a SOFT-close feature

    If you are building new cabinets, I recommend using Blum Tandem SOFT-close drawer runners.  The SOFT-close feature is integrated into the drawer runner and, in my opinion, this is the best under mount SOFT-close runner of this type on the market.   Many households today likely have cabinet drawers with a SELF-close feature as opposed to SOFT-close.  A disadvantage of...
  2. Eliminate Drawer Racking with Lateral Stabilization

    Years ago drawers in kitchen cabinets were seldom wider than 24 inches.  Standard widths for drawers were from 12 to 24 inches.  Now-a-days the trend is for wider drawers, much wider.  The wider drawer is very practical because it provides more efficient storage of pots, pans and other large items.  Wider drawers in garage cabinets is also more common today...
  3. Runner Setbacks for Blum TANDEM plus BLUMOTION Drawer Runners

    Having the correct drawer runner setback on Blum Tandems makes for a very nice product installation. So what is runner setback? It is how far the leading edge of the cabinet profile on the Tandem is set back from the front edge of the face frame or if you are building cabinets without face frames the setback is from the...
  4. Wood Cutting Boards

    Call them whatever you want, cutting boards, bread boards or pastry boards, it doesn't make any difference, they are very useful in the kitchen.  Years ago we were selling cutting boards that had a particle board interior with a 1" hardwood side rail on each side that could be trimmed and it had a very thick maple veneer on both surfaces...
  5. Amerock Decorative Hinges

    Maybe you live in a rickety old house like I do and you have old cabinets that are still sound but with old worn out hinges and you want to replace the hinges only.  Our house has 3/8” inset hinges that are self-closing and free-swinging.  We have half inch overlay hinges that are single demountable and double demountable. We have...
  6. Proper Cleaning of Your Decorative Cabinet Hardware

    People often ask what is the best way to clean my kitchen cabinet knobs and pulls. A mild soap and water is the best way, using harsh chemical and abrasive cleaners will actually remove the clear coat finish that will wreck your handles. This will often void any warranty as this is not the recommended way to clean cabinet hardware. ...
  7. EZ Mix Disposable Mixing Cups

    Have you ever seen a mix ratio cup like the type used for mixing paint?  If you have then you have noticed all the numbers on the cup.  When I was going to use one to mix paint the first time I nearly went into afib. I am better now. DiAnne (that’s my wife) told me to calm down and figure it...
  8. Cabinet and Furniture Leg Levelers

    Normally I would not think of writing a blog about cabinet and furniture levelers (leg levelers). It wasn’t until I once considered using them and didn’t that the value of levelers became apparent to me. We used to be able to say that the house we live in has never had water in the basement. We can’t say that today...
  9. Heavy Duty Work Station Brackets

    Recently I erected some shelves on our deck for flower pots. DiAnne was really impressed. She gave me favorable facial expressions with bright eyes and smiles. Watch the video and see why she loved it. The inspiration for the flower pot shelving came from a shelf bracket I used in the garage to support a cabinet that was breaking down...
