Deconstructing the kitchen

Volume 10, Issue 61; 22 Jun 2007; last modified 08 Oct 2010

And I don't mean artistic criticism about its architectural merits, either.

I have a fairly substantial queue of essays to write: a summary of my (entirely positive) experiences at XML Prague; at least three photo essays about Prague; some remarks about the joy of a wide angle lens in a beautiful, historic city; some additional thoughts about XProc parameters now that we have a draft, and I have an implementation, that works; and probably a couple of other things by the time I get that all written down.

But this week's task (I'm taking a few vacation days) is renovation of the kitchen. It's one of the projects. Before you can install new cabinets, you have to remove the existing ones: deconstruction. Not really demolition because I was able to freecycle the old ones.

Without further ado, deconstruction of the Walsh kitchen in just over a minute. And my first YouTube movie.

I tried to “film” the next day's work, and had hoped to film the reconstruction, but gphoto2 and my camera stopped cooperating. I wish I had time to investigate why.

Neat though. I liked the pauses :-)

The soffit that you see along the wall will (has been) extended out over (what will be) the peninsula counter. New cabinets will hang from it.
