Install the dishwasher and Add some shelves

I couldn’t find a cabinet for the dishwasher anywhere on the Ikea website so I went the cheap route (I’m still not sure what the Ikea approved method is when the end cabinet is a tall one).  Anyway, I created two little shelves and installed them from above using pocket whole screws. This created more than enough support for the countertop later on that would go above it and also created a flange to screw the dishwasher into at the top.


I took the same approach to finishing off those island shelves except had to cut them at 45 deg and mount them from below:

Here is the finished trim on the side which shows how we generally terminate the base into the leg on any custom cabinet.


Next time we will get ready for paint and fill in the rest of the cabinets.
