DIY: Oven & Hob section / Part 2

Two days ago I shared how hard it was to get going on this oven & hob section. Now I’m up and running :). I measured, I cut and glued all the boards together to make a countertop for this section a few days ago. Yesterday it was sanding & oiling. Is there anyone who likes to be covered in man […]

Kitchen

I can’t believe it’s already more than a month since I last use my tools and worked on myDIY kitchen unit project! It feels like I didn’t do it. And if I did, I don’t know how I did it! I’m surprised. Every day looking at it! It’s time to move on! The cooktop is here! So I can continue […]

I know it’s something crazy, cause wood doesn’t like water. But. I already made a blueprint 🙂 I’m not aiming for something glamorous or complicated. Something […]
