The last time I delivered a cabinet to Saint Joseph’s it snowed. Looks like this delivery was no different. Thankfully, my friend Tony offered to bring his trailer and 4-wheel drive pick-up, and help with the delivery. We also had the added bonus of Brook tagging along. She mainly managed to get in the way, but didn’t seem to mind at all…
We started by unloading the drawers and taking them in first. That removed nearly 100 pounds from the big cabinet, allowing us to be able to carry it in the building.
The church staff removed the previous storage cabinet earlier in the week and applied a coat of primer to the wall. Since the carpet was installed around the older, larger cabinet, I installed the 3/4″ plywood base, that I built, to cover the gap. With a little shimming, we got it as level as possible and trimmed the base trim, so the cabinet would set as close to the wall as possible.
With the base level, the cabinet fit into the corner nicely. I ran a screw through the back panel into, what we hoped was a stud, to help prevent tipping.
We set the upper cabinet on top, then vacuumed the floor.
The only thing left is the crown molding, that is, hopefully, being cut today. I will pop back on another weekend and put that up. I am done for now.
Here are a couple of “before” shots of the existing cabinets. The first one is the storage cabinet that I just replaced with the altar cloth cabinet and the upper storage cabinet.
The second one was the corner cabinet that I replaced with the large storage cabinet, on the right.
This is a picture of the existing built-in set of cabinets that I attempted to match.
