New Yankee Workshop

The Hot Wall

Season 20, Episode 3 of 13

The cabinetry surrounding the built-in double oven, range and range hood is the first section Norms builds, using some of the techniques explained in the first two episodes. Norm shows the location of the dream kitchen, on the footprint of an existing version built by its owner 30 years earlier. Improvements in materials and techniques not available in the 1970s will mean stronger cabinets that are easier to use and maintain, look attractive over a prolonged lifetime and add considerable value to the home. Best of all, the new kitchen can be built for a fraction of the cost of a kitchen built by "professionals. " After showing how to build the carcass for the oven cabinet, Norm adds a storage organizer for trays and cookie sheets and a large drawer below for pot lids; he plans two small base cabinets on either side of the range and two wall hung units to complete the group. Next, he shows off the details of the prototype inset door and drawer design, which will be used extensively in this kitchen. At the end of the episode, he builds a dovetailed drawer box with a plain front. This drawer design will also be used throughout the dream kitchen.
