Microwave/Recycling Bin/Shredder/Mail Tray Cabinet — Part 3 of 3

In this final video, I put everything together in the laundry room. I made the shelf to hold the microwave and then discovered that the microwave did not fit thought the opening in the front of the cabinet I had made for it. The solution I came up with to get the microwave into the cabinet was to put it through the opening for the drawers and lift it up into place from below. This meant the shelf I had made would be in the way. I came up with a system of struts that I could put in place once the microwave was in the right location to hold the microwave up. Everything else went together without a hitch.

  1. Very nice! My only mental block was satisfied at 6:02.. At first I assumed the microwave opened the other way and that was the reason for the cut-out. Big fan of the shredder near the mail so clutter doesn't build up and build up further inside the house

  2. Long time admirer of your work Frank. I do have a comment. Fully build in microwaves need to be able to vent water vapour. Not sure that Yu cabinet allows this, however I may have missed something. Many thanks

  3. I don't like this project, how it turned out and the mish mash of stuff going on but I hope it works out well for you guys. I still watched with intrigue though, to see how it turned out and to witness your build. I think it went well and as ever the vids were a pleasure to watch 🙂

  4. Hi Frank, nicely done but, in my opinion, not too practical for the microwave bit, the bins and shredder were just fine. Imagine the microwave died and you could not find an exact replacement or repair it, the chances for another similarly sized microwave may be a tad too challenging? But I believe a nice aquarium could replace it anytime, consider there's a power outlet for the pumps and filter.

  5. I know this might be a weird thing to comment on this type of video, but here goes. I was in need of a calming distraction this morning related to a bad bout of anxiety and I stumbled upon your videos. I've been binge watching them ever since. I'm pretty sure it wasn't your intention to make the kind of videos that people watch to help lessen their anxiety, but you certainly succeeded. your voice is so calm and soothing and you're so skilled in your craft that it's lovely to watch. not to mention, your editing is amazing! I admire all the hard work you do and I will definitely be subscribing. 🙂

  6. Frank,I love your videos. I have been a woodworker for over forty years and I appreciate the fact that you don't edit out your mistakes. As I work with new woodworkers (my sons and others) they tend to get discouraged when things don't always work out the first time. It's important to teach them that adapting and adjusting on the fly are valuable skills to have.

  7. I was so hoping the gantry crane would be used to support the microwave as part of the "Plan B" microwave mounting solution. However, no doubt it's use would have been a little problematic for the final install in the kitchen. ? …

  8. Brilliant project. I love the way you come up against problems and don't have a fit like probably most if us do ! and then sort them out with a simple solution. It gives me confidence knowing even the professionals screw up a little now and then as I seem to always do !?!

  9. Love it as always — personally I hate microwaves with the pushbutton door opening that aren't screwed down, the whole unit feels like it will push into the recess in the cupboard. Otherwise, great design!

  10. Before I saw your solution, I was going to suggest removing the shelf supports (unscrew them from both sides), then lift the the microwave and the shelf from the bottom, and then screw the supports back into place. So reverse your install order…instead of supports, shelf, microwave —> microwave, shelf, supports. 😉 But…nice work regardless. This turned out really nice. The reveal on the doors is nice and crisp!

  11. Hello mr Howarth my name is Catherine, I'm 29, from Greece. I was wondering why did you decide this furniture to have holes at the back and side of microwave ? one of them wouldn't be enough for the microwave?and why behind one more huge holebehind both drawers? Is there a matter of weight on the base? Thank you in advance.

  12. I don't understand why you just didn't have where the light switch it completely opened. It looks stupid to always put your hand in that hole next to the microwave to turn on the light.

  13. this is the first time I don't agree with you Frank I can't believe that you didn't let open space to use the switch instead of the complex thing that only you know and is not fast.

  14. I have done some woodworks in the past but this woodwork plan helps me do much in a far lesser time than I used to do [Link Here==https://plus.google.com/u/0/109305854848533008884/posts/j4qp7C9WysA ]. I have already built several projects with this plan and I intend to do many more soon. Thank you so much!
