Ron,
Do you have a pic of the under sink side door open that shows the space there?

I do but far more practical photos and use of the space would be shown in the mod MarkV did. He opened up the whole space. My wife didn't want me change the existing cabinet area and my needs were different so the space I created isn't the most practical but it serves my needs.

Perhaps one member with legendary search skills can pull up MarkV's photos.

I needed a storage area for umm, long objects. The space also had to comply with certain transportation rules about the safe transport of such objects. My storage area has a locking steel door and it's concealed by a wood panel held on by magnets. Quick and easy to access but out of sight and not likely to be discovered during a B & E.

Thanks. I actually made the cutouts today with a dremel router tool to open the space below the refer and furnace. It got kinda rough on the edges, so I'm pondering how to clean it up. Maybe with some oak trim or U channel moulding?

I will probably be ordering doors from this supplier...

Those prices sure beat ETI's by a long way although ETI's include matching hinges and handles.

I know that often the photo shown isn't actually what the product you get looks like and that natural products have a large variation. But the wood grain shown in their photo for the oak door wouldn't be a great match for the ETI supplied doors. Maybe you could ask them to send you a photo of another door to clarify if it's a better match.

If you can't get an oak trim I'd just use a plastic "U" trim, even if it was something like plain brown.

I too recall this information on an earlier thread and looked into it further; Glenn is correct. However, ETI sold me a few small sheets of the paneling, a length of trim molding for the fridge, several feet of the small rubber molding used to finish the edges of cut paneling for a nominal cost last time I was up their way.

Attending the rally in Osoyoos is a good excuse to have ETI bring you some needed supplies. The factory is not that far away and they will deliver to the rally. I got some extra trim as well as an extra pop up table, installed by Reace himself at the rally.

What a great idea for those expensive fishing rods.
I see a new mod coming.
