My cabinets shipped yesterday so they should be arriving at the house in the next 3-5 days.
I am also going to attach a crown molding to the cabinets. I have already been told by the designer at Lowes that I will need to attach a small piece of wood to the top of the cabinet so the crown molding will have something to hold to.
Here is my plan. You can tell me what is wrong with it.
Using my laser level, I'll draw a line and screw a resting board to the wall so that I can set each upper cabinet on it. Then I will measure the distance between the cabinet and the ceiling. I will probably deduct a half an inch so the cabinets should slide easily onto the resting strip.
Then I'll remove the cabinet, glue and nail a small one-by to the top of the cabinet using my (18 guage?) brad nailer. I guess I have never heard of a 23 guage pin nail.
Then I am going to shim and screw the cabinet to the wall and attach each unit according to the manufacturer's specs.
OK, fire away!
