I'm about to install a dishwasher in my kitchen. The kitchen didn't previously have one so I must cut a space in the cabinet.
The electrical, hot water and drain lines should be no problem, that seems straightforward. I had an electrician wire a new 15-amp circuit to the spot.
The hard part is cutting the cabinet. I'd be grateful for any advice on this process. I'm planning to rent a Sawzall/reciprocating saw and cut a 24" wide, 34" high hole in the spot (next to the sink) where an existing 19.5" drawer and cabinet exist.
- What's a good technique for keeping straight with the saw? I thought holding a piece of molding along the side of the saw might be good.
- The cabinet is "half" of one large cabinet, and I'm just going to cut some plywood to match the hole and glue it in, cutting the cabinet in half.
Anybody done this on their own? Am I getting in over my head?
