DIY Kitchen Island on Wheels: Build the Sheet Pan Storage Space

Cut the sheet pan wall, top/bottom sheet pan grooved pieces to size. Using a router fitted with a 1/4" channel bit, route grooves into the top/bottom sheet pan grooved pieces. You can also accomplish this by doing multiple passes on a table saw. These grooves will allow for the sheet pan dividers to slide into place easily. Attach the bottom sheet pan grooved piece with wood glue and 1-1/4" brad nails. Drill 3/4" pocket holes into the sheet pan wall and attach with 1-1/4" pocket hole screws. Add the top sheet pan grooved piece and ensure that it is level.

DIY Coffee Bar: Bore Holes for Pipe

Using a drill fitted with a 5/8" Forstner bit, bore three holes in each side frame for the pipe to sit into. Bore the holes about 3/8" deep, being careful not to bore all the way through the boards. Be sure to measure and mark so that the holes in both boards are identical, otherwise your hanging rods won’t be level or square.

DIY Coffee Bar: Bore Holes for Pipe

For my coffee cups, the first hole is 2" from the top, the middle hole at 11", and the bottom hole at 20" from the top. If you have larger or taller coffee cups, you may want to measure and mark your own holes to accommodate your cups so that they hang freely, without bumping into the next row.

Hiring the Wrong Contractor

"You need to make sure that the contractor is right for you, because he's going to be in your home, and you want to make sure it's the right contractor," Jeff says. Stephen Drucker, former editor in chief of House Beautiful adds, "When you interview contractors and check references, the thing you want to find out is, how fast do they return phone calls? A contractor who returns phone calls fast has nothing to hide, and it's going to reduce your anxiety level."
