First galley cabinet carcase has been assembled, painted and fitted. Ready for four drawers (and a face frame). Includes lower storage access against the hull. The main salon layout allows for a maximum drawer travel of about twenty inches (before it hits the opposing sink cabinet). This leaves about a ten inch gap between the back of the carcase and the hull that could be used for storage. So, a deep “pocket” was built into carcase that will be accessed by a removable bottom in the cubby hole behind the counter backsplash. It is about 12 inches deep and is big enough to hold a large Costco size olive oil container.
Update: As you can see, the carcase ain’t perfect. In this particular project, I cut my teeth on the CNC machines accuracy and precision. Despite careful measurement of the plywood thickness, the dados cut by the machine ended up being a bit too narrow (by about 1/64th of an inch), enough to make assembly somewhat of a pain. I have since discovered the software setting that can compensate for this. Also, this project revealed that I need to do something about the machine’s accuracy, precision and consistency before I use it to cut more detailed stuff like drawers. But for now it is ok for things like carcases.
