I mention this because he recently built me a pair of custom lazy-susans for our corner cupboard, thus making some of my kitchen-dreams come true.
A) expensive, given their quality
B) lackluster in weigh capacity
C) very limited in dimensions
So, though he swears he is not much of a carpenter, he measured, drafted, cut, screwed, and crafted two lazy-susans juuuuuuuust right for our cupboard. It involved making a "jig" first and then using that and a jig saw to cut the wood into appropriately sized round pieces. (After explaining to Beth what the heck a jig was, I might add.)
|This picture is the closest I have to a Before photo. At this point Matt had already placed the laminate tiles (leftovers from our bathroom) and secured the smaller lazy-susan to the top shelf.|
Never the less, I am astonished at the humongous difference just making this one cupboard more user-friendly has made in the kitchen flow. We were able to juggle the pots and pans, etc. around so that all of our other cupboards are now uncluttered and easier to use as well. It is amazing. Every time I open the corner cupboard (well, all the cupboards, really) it makes me happy. I imagine this will wear off in time, but seriously, the effect is dramatic.
Seriously. There is nothing this man can't do when he sets his mind to it. This is just one of the ways he continues to amaze and impress me year after year. Also, he bought me flowers again yesterday. For no reason. AND made tater tot hotdish!
