For the past several months while I’ve been on the road for work my wife Samantha has been tackling a kitchen project. I’ve been helping out where, and when I could, but for the most part it was all her sweat and effort going into it (and before anyone asks, no, I didn’t build any cabinets or new doors for the kitchen.)

The kitchen before... ...the kitchen after.

In fact, aside from removing a small partition wall, along with tearing out the countertops and backsplash, the project was really more of a “facelift” than remodel. But now that it’s completed, the one project Samantha requested all along was a set of live-edge shelves for where a cabinet once sat. I doubt I’ll do much to document their installation; it’s pretty straight-forward.

Probably the most difficult part of the build will be carefully drilling through ceramic tile to install them. Of course with that said now, finding a way to mill the 12″ wide boards I’m planning to use could’ve been an even bigger struggle if it weren’t for my thickness planer sled.
