German Kitchen with Boxing and Island Bulkhead.
Do you mean the mitres in the ally trim Ray? If so, yes.

I super glued a small MDF block behind each corner as there was a bit of movement in the trims.

Edit. These trims are easily bent if unsupported. I imagine the E100 trim would be even worse. The 50mm and 75mm trims I fitted came all wrapped together in heat wrapped plastic with cardboard on each end,......but were as bent as a donkeys hind leg! I had to straighten them along a 4x2 timber before cutting and fitting them. £30 for postage is steep considering they didn't arrive straight...! Wow2

 It didn't need to be any bigger as it's not holding any weight other than itself and is supported by the units themselves.

The elongated hole is actually a recessed plaster light fitting. There are a number of the same fittings set at the same height all around the various rooms at ground level. The plaster fitting is about 200mm wide x 750mm high, but by the time it's all plastered in, filled, sanded down and painted, the recess you can see is about 80mm wide x 500mm high. I suppose you could call it Ambient or Mood Lighting....!

Like that Tim ... looks sharpe  ThumbUp

Lovely kitchen as always. I only have one minor criticism. I think you need a few more trestles on site and a bigger workbench. How do you manage to cut anything on that postage stamp?

Th_ROFLMAO .......It is a fairly large workbench/cutting table (2440 x 1220) and there's not always enough room for it on every job, but the last 3 or 4 jobs have all been really large rooms so plenty of space to spread out a bit.

That bench has saved me loads of time since I had it made but it won't fit inside my fitting van, so I usually have it delivered to site when I deliver the kitchen units.

The quartz templating for the kitchen and utility room was done yesterday, so hopefully the job will be all completed by this time next week. I am in the process of cutting and machining up some Oak worktops and an Oak slab end for the reduced depth unit on the end of the Island today.

The pictures show the various stages of the build/fit and I'll post pictures of the finished job when it's all completely finished.

Hi Snezza

Dumb question on the way, I am an apprentice trained Joiner of some 30 odd years but never done much joiners shop work. Just hand/portable tool sort of work.

So I'm intrigued to know how you went about drilling all those holes in your cutting table with accuracy?

It looks very useful I assume you use it with Fezzy clamps etc, not that I'm ever likely to make one unless a job dictates I do. I'd be bored to fuck by the time I got to 5th hole Arrgh .

I had the bench made by someone I know with a CNC.

Here's a link to his Website

The bench is based upon the Festool MFT bench and the 20mm holes set at 96mm centres.
All the holes are at a perfect 90 degrees to each other which allows you to make perfect 90 degree and 45 degree cuts with the use of 20mm bench dogs and a guide rail & saw.
