After supper last night, Steve pulled the old range out for me. Lots of cleaning to do before starting. :(  Nasty back there since the range could not go all the way in due to the outlet location. I'm moving that. Just shut the breaker off!

I'm going to try something different for the finish on the wood. The existing cabinets are White. A tan 'marble' Formica on the counter top. I have to test a piece of wood, but I plan to put on a sanding sealer. Then a coat of primer with a finish coat of Black Appliance paint. Not even going to try to match the existing. And since the Black is an epoxy finish, should last for some time. We'll see.

The old range will go out the door this morning, then I'll start cleaning. After that, locating the new electric outlet and getting the gas for the cooktop ran. Once it warms a bit, I'll get a piece of wood and do my test for the finish. Hope it works!

Well, I got some things going. Not much was pic worthy. Found a lot of out of level and square issues. But my paint idea is working.

Here's the front of the base after painting.

Tomorrow should show more progress. I have the electric moved and a hole for the gas to come in. Need a 24" and an 8" piece to hook that together. I'll be putting the base together then too.

I have the base installed! Got a pic of that! I'll finish running the gas and then I can concentrate on the rest of the cabinet.

Been cutting pieces to fit and getting them painted. Most of my time is waiting for paint to dry so I can get this to a finished state. It would be nice to have a square and plumb place to fit it all. Got the last parts cut, sealed, primed and painted. Waiting for paint to dry!

Should be ready for use tomorrow!

Ran it up to 450° for a test. All is good on that end! Now for the cooktop!

Nice neat work Kenny! I have a gas cooktop... a killer one and I will tell you this, it is incredible with heavy pots and cast iron! Throw away any thin stainless or aluminium as it will murder them in no time.
No cheap pots and pans on gas..

I love my cast iron, Keith. I have 2 that my Mom used. Lots of chicken was fried in them when I was a kid. Nothing better than that.

I have several thick bottom stainless skillets also. I found my cast Dutch Oven in this oven when I opened it. Forgot it was in there.

I got the cooktop in and bled the air out! We have fire! :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana:

 

Hard to see in the pic, but both front burners are on. Ignitors work great!

Now to get the rest of the kitchen in order and tools put away!

Four burners on top and an oven below

Kenny's all set and ready to go

Ready for company to share a great meal

Who's the lucky lady who's heart he will try and steal?
