New Mod

Well, it's more of a personalization than a modification, since we didn't modify anything. Here's a pic of my latest cupholder/wine goblet holder, mounted where the range hood would have been. We didn't order a range hood in the 19 so we had plenty of room for this personalization.

It's held the top with [dare I say it?] VHB tape, reinforced with bolts to the top shelf and the side wall. It's stained in a MinWax Windsor Oak wood sheen finish, followed by a couple of coats of polyurethane. Under the cups and wine goblets is a strip of soft, rubbery shelf-liner.

In case you're wondering, to the right is a KES Wall Mounted Swing Arm Hook, affixed to a Red Oak escutcheon and mounted with -- you guessed it -- VHB tape. We use it for potholders.

Was that cupholder hand made or store bought? If the latter, please post your source, thanks.

Very impressive cup holder! Where do you get VHB tape that isn't $40?

All home shop made of Red Oak.

And Cathy, I get my VHB tape on eBay, usually from this seller: 3M 2" x 6 ft VHB Double Sided Foam Adhesive Tape 5952 Acrylic Indrustrial Grade | eBay

Another Mod

Busy with mods today:

Here's another take off on the "Alf" Shelf. It's mounted above the door, on our 19, made out of a single cut piece of an acrylic 4 x 4 fencepost. The shelf is just the right depth for that miscellaneous pair of gloves [in the picture], a wallet, bug spray, etc. And, of course, it's held on with VHB tape.
