A recent kitchen renovation project inspires new woodshop storage ideas for my garage: recycle the old kitchen cabinets into new storage space. I also like the idea of reusing as much salvaged material as possible to reduce landfill many remodeling jobs, the old kitchen cabinets do not retain any cash value and to the contractor, they are not worth the time and effort to save.

Rather than removing the cabinets carefully for resale or donation, the old cabinets are broken down and tossed aside. Deemed worthless, the old cabinets are doomed to the dumpster and destined for the landfill.

New homes and additions are easier to measure when open and unfinished. The difficult measurements come from old homes. Filling in dead space around a foundation may require an estimate. It is better to estimate on the low side to save cost. If you complete a project and find you need a small amount more, a small kit can be purchased to finish the job. Expanding foam insulation sticks to itself from old to new project very well and will seal completely as if it were done as one job.

A small hay bale in the corner.
