Raising Cabinets - Part 5
Step 5: Add Face Frame & Crown Moulding
Wow... I actually made it to the end! This definitely turned out to be my largest project to date and here at the final step I forgot to take pictures of the face frame assembly and install!
As you will see, I simply made a few small oak supports to cover up all of the creases between each box and a large, wide oak board to span the distance above the boxes to the ceiling supports. Once the face frames were attached, we ran crown moulding around all of it, caulked it, primed, painted, decorated, and DONE!
At the same time I was working on the upper and lower cabinets I was also working on remodeling our island in the middle of the kitchen. I'll write a separate post on that project. Check out the links and pictures below and contact me if you have any additional questions. You don't have to be an experienced woodworker; you can do in your kitchen too!
