They install to the ground alongside the the applying and also to the wall and may be removed for easy entry when required. Panels have hard-wood designs pasted to the entrance to coincide with the hard-wood in the kitchen. An equipment panel can be made by you in about one hour.

Assess breadth and the height of the equipment. To the very best of the burners, measure from the ground for ranges. For dishwashers and fridges, measure to the very best.

Run a bead of adhesive over the rear of every piece inch upward from the bottom edge. Set the plywood panel level on a work table. Put all four parts of hard-wood on their borders across the panel. Bring the corners that are mitered and shoot at pin nails to the hard-wood 6″ apart to fix the hardwood framework to the plywood. The panel needs to have a 3/4-inch lip.

Turn the panel over. Putty each of the nail holes using wood dough and a putty knife. Sand the panel easy utilizing 100-grit sandpaper on a hand-block. Stain and lacquer as-needed.

Slip the appliance from the wall. Stand the panel in location in which you would like to set it up.
