Here ya go, Al:
Plenty of room for a Cutting board:
I know how it is bear...although we have a decent sized kitchen the rest of our house doesn't have squat for storage space. From the outside our house looks big...a two story that sits on top of a hill, but inside not so much. Was my grandparents house where my dad grew up, abandoned for over 20 years when we decided to gut it and remodel it...and that was about 20 years ago. So we do what we can for storage. Two cool things we found...1st my grandpa's diploma from 1907, 2nd was a 20 gallon crock almost totally buried in basement cement floor, all but about 2 inches of top with a wood lid. Dad said grandma used to salt meat and store it there.
All of the drawers that line up are 'grain matched'. they are cut from a continuous board. The pull out cutting boards are cut from the same board in grain match. Cabinet doors are raised panel, European hidden hinges, back bevel- no pull.LOL---After 20 years of Manufacturing Kitchen Cabinets I think I only installed about a dozen slide out cutting boards. I did NOT like cutting my top rail down!
Usually when somebody wanted one of them, I'd give them a nice size section of a Butcher Block Top---FREE of charge.
Man I just ran across this thread. You have a lot of cool stuff Bear. One can never have too many cooking or food prep toys. How do I know this? Our home we bought 3 years ago has 2 kitchens - yep, I cheat. If I get a new gadget for the kitchen and don't want Jana to know I stash it in the barn kitchen until she pops up needing it and Wala! Here you go hun. Sometimes that works and sometimes it don't.
Now I think I have to start buying more stuff after seeing all your cool stuff (and the others who have posted their stuff) - This really is a sickness.....
