Templating, part 2

With the kitchen island cabinets now in place, “Dimensional R” from Austin Stone Works — he asks to not be named, and to not have his face photographed — is back to build the template for the kitchen island.

Today, R uses thin strips of wood instead of the white plastic. He has to span the storage cabinets at the right side of photo, above, across the open seating area where we plan to put four stools, to the shelf cabinet at the far left end of the island. The plastic will sag; the wood strips hold their dimensions.

Everything must be clearly marked for the fabricators -- which template abuts the next -- in order for the quartz to be cut correctly.

R opened a package of the cabinet pulls, using one as a reference to determine how far past the pull the countertop should extend -- 3/4 of an inch.
R opened a package of the cabinet pulls, using one as a reference to determine how far past the pull the countertop should extend — 3/4 of an inch out from the front of the cabinet box, where the tape measure starts, to just past the front of the pull.
Now that he knows the pull dimensions and clearance, R builds an entirely new template for the counter that runs from the dishwasher past the sink and cooktop to the dog station at the end closest to the camera.
