Maybe you can make another identical set and put them on the other side of the cabinet so they look like part of the cabinet. That way, both of you can access the drawers at the same time. Otherwise, get rid of them and use a kitchen chair to get up there like the rest of us do. :-)

LOL. That step stool is kinda heavy, solid white oak. I drag out the kitchen chair when my wife is not looking. She likes to put her seasonal fluff on the step stool steps.

Yup. Really nice looking build. The only downside is that everything else you make has to match this piece.
I'm always jealous of what you build. Not of the pieces themselves, but the fact that you have a suitable space to build it in. When I dream of winning the lottery, it's not tropical vacations and naked women I think about, it's the house with a really nice workshop I imagine. I'm not quite sure if my imagination is working properly or not. <???>

I do enjoy the room although I have so darn busy since we moved in 12 months ago I have not really had a chance to put things where they need to be. That task began today by relocating the freezer. Later this week a few other items will be relocated and I hope to finally move my lumber stash from the old house to the new one. Thank heavens our son bought our older house so we were not rushed to move although I think he may be getting a bit tired of waiting. LOL

Sorry. I just hadda do it.

I hope it's a very recently purchased freezer. The old ones suck energy like they were going out of style.

Don't worry. I think he knows how slowly old people get around to doing things.
Are you guys as dead in the winter as I am? I have a LifeAlert installation today and 2-3 hours on Friday with an old client, with one hour put in last week. That's it for the month so far. <sigh>

"Suit" is also used in cards, which is where our phrase "to follow suit" came from.
Now all we have to do is convince people to drop the "e" in "suite" to get "suit" and then drop the extra "o" to get "loser".

The kitchen cabinets had to follow the bedroom suite towers. ;~) I'll blame the spell checker.
