This is what it looks like after a very long weekend of cutting and being covered in sawdust!! Basically these are three IKEA AKURUM High Cabinets that were 15 inches wide x 12 inches deep and 80 inches in height. I had to cut the depth of the carcasses to 7 and a quarter inches including the shelves. Lynda assisted with the long cuts and I do not think she really enjoyed being covered in dust.
It's a big difference from what we had before and is more pleasing on the eyes. Also visible is a pendant lamp that we got from the local salvation army store at a throwaway price. It was brand new - in the box!!!!!!!
This is what the inside of the Right Hand unit looks like with it's doors wide open. The cover for the fuse panel is off and has been sprayed white to minimise the impact that the grey colour would have had. I will be putting in shelves to make use of all of the available space.
This is a cut out I made in order to turn off the main breaker; when and if required.

'Zero Bubble' is a Maritime Term used specifically by the US Navy when describing a level state or calling for a submarine to be levelled out.
My bookshelves are now at Zero Bubble!!!
An amazing feat if I may say so myself; given that the floor is completely whack and that I am dealing with five individual units.
Now to screw them all together and do the final fixing!!!
It's been a great day so far, even though I've had to spend an hour and a half digging a path out of the snow for the car and having to take care of an unwell Aaliyah.
We're getting there baby!!!
