Cabinet Questions and Answers

Leveling Shims

I have a simple question When you insert shims to level a cabinet, board, etc. do the shims stay in forever or are they only there until the screw/nails are put in? If they stay how do you cover them up or cut them down so they are not visible?

If you wont see them again, that is you will cover them with trim etc., leave them in there. If you will see them, take them out once the cabinet is securely screwed in place.

Making Your Kitchen Cabinets Look Like They Came from a Kitchen in the 1900 - 1940 Era

Help, my husband and I are building our own house. We tried to save a 70 year old house but could not so we tore it down and are building a two story cottage house over the existing full basement. We want to make it as close to a 1920 's 30 or 40 house as we can. Does anyone have any good links that will tell us how to make the kitchen cabinets that used to be in houses (tall that look like cupboards, or glass fronts or just shelves - also we have an old cast iron sink with its own drainer approx. 4 to 5 foot long any advice for making the cabinet to look that era?

I would recommend picking up a copy of American Bungalow Magazine...It's printed in California but readily available. Feel free to e-mail me If you can't find it. The latest issue has an article on period kitchens and there is a listing of books on period designs in every issue. It is a valuable source for home restoration for this period. Too bad you had to tear down your old home but I applaud your efforts to make your new one look like it's been there awhile.
