Just some photos of a Kitchen Island install that I started.

Cheers,

Looking great!  Glad you got the finishing issues worked out.

Any plans to fix the island to the subfloor or do you just let the weight of it keep it in place?

Looks real good...I assume there will be a toe kick to cover the legs/levelers.

Very clean design.  And the white is a nice compliment to what looks like Marble flooring.

It will not be anchored to the floor because the client does not want to damage the tile floor.

Yes. Toe kicks are being fabricated and painted before install.

Took a while to get the spraying correct. Now using PPG Breakthrough. Found a Benjamin Moore dealer that carries it and can match any BM colour.
Paint sprays well. Goes on ugly, but within a few hours it levels, tightens up and is ready for a second coat. I always wait a day before applying the second and third coat.

Well that's weird, I thought Breakthrough was supposed to be a fast drying paint?

Perhaps the client might consider an adhesive of some type that can be removed when desired in the future.

All you'd have to do is put a small round piece of double-stick tape under just the 4 corner levelers and the island would go nowhere.  [smile]

As part of this project, I am building new cabinet doors to match the style of the island. The client also wants me to replace the old Blum hinges with new Blumotion hinges. The existing mounting plates on the cabinets are place at 4 1/4". The old mounting plates are very loose and I will not be able to use the existing holes to mount the new ones. Would it be wrong to position the new mounting plates 3/4" higher thus resulting in placing the hinges at the 5" mark on the doors. My doors range in height from 30" to 41". Maybe filling in the existing holes with something that can be re-drilled for the new plates.
 Looking for ideas and recommendations.

Thanks

If the old plates used standard wood screws maybe you could drill them out to 5mm and use system screws or expando mounting plates. If they are already 5mm holes you could drill out for the nylon insert often used on the doors.
