  1. I don't understand why you have to route a channel in the back. Why not just attach the plywood overlapping the frame? It won't be seen anyway

  2. I have re done my kitchen just like your shaker style cabinetry in maple stained. I want to enclose from the top of the cabinets to the ceiling like you have done. However, I have a sloped/angled ceiling, so putting the board blocking at the ceiling will not be straight up and down. Therefore there will be very little area to tack on the extension at the ceiling to be straight. What is your solution for this? How would you tackle blocking at the ceiling that is sloped? Thank you in advance for your input.

  3. That look out of place something bad. Not sure just completely slick wouldn’t have looked better

  4. That is an improved look, but I would like usable storage space up there.

  5. I can't believe you put those soffits in that tight and then installed a piece of trim over the connection at the ceiling. I would've installed the trim. But not installed the panels so tight. Too many problems can show up.

  7. Yes, as others have said, use the space. I will be remodeling my (similar) kitchen in many of the same ways, but one of the reasons, is to extend the cabinets to the ceiling.

  10. If I want to use the space instead on enclose it, would you be able to explain that process? Enclosed shelves is what I’m thinking, no doors but the face in place?

  11. Really enjoyed this Kreg Series. What would have been cool would be if you had made Hidden secret cabinets for your treasures. Out of site out of reach. Thanks for Sharing such a Great Video Series.

  12. Not criticizing you, but why not take advantage of the space and put doors to use that space

  13. I think making some doors would be great for more storage space. But thats just my opinion

  19. Fabulous!

  20. Yes, this does sounds like a great idea. But as others have said I would make access to the new area for additional storage.

  21. I believe it would have looked better if you lined up the stiles and made doors that opened for more storage space. just my opinion. Instead of just making a facade.
