How do I face nail my first and last flooring planks under the kitchen cabinet toe-kicks?

Posted: March 14th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Under Cabinet Tips | Tags: , , , , , , , , , | No Comments »

I will be blind nailing 1/2″ thick prefinished engineered Teak flooring with a hand scraped or “distressed” finish. But I’ve read that I will need to face nail my first and last rows of planks with finish nails. How do I do this with the overhang of the toe kicks on my kitchen cabinets? Am I just nailing at an angle, counter sinking them, and then filling with putty or is there a trick to this I am missing? The planks will be running the length of the kitchen, same as the counters. And I have counters on both sides of the room. I don’t have the flooring yet but it’ll be ordered this weekend and I just want to have ideas ahead of time. Also, I am thinking of buying an 18ga brad nailer (handles up to 2″ brads) for trim work. Can this be used for face nailing the flooring planks or do I need 16 or larger gauge? Any other tips are appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

        How much to replace cabinet floor under kitchen sink?

        Posted: March 5th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Under Cabinet Tips | Tags: , , , , , , | No Comments »

        I’ve had a faucet leak under my kitchen sink for quite some time. It has gotten worse. I went from using a regular bowl to using a medium sized plant pot to catch the water. I’m going to have a new faucet put in. How much should I expect to pay someone to replace the cabinet floor under the sink? I live in a manufactured home. The floor is in one piece and shared by other cabinets. Can they cut it and just replace the bad part?
        Alan, the problem came from continuous leaking. We have one of those sprayers with the hose for a faucet and the hose gets wet and drips. It’s getting worn out and now the line is leaking. I just wanted to know how much it would cost to have someone come in and fix it.

            I have a cabinet in my room that is very unsteady. Is there anything that I can place under the cabinet and lock it to the ground? But then press a button to release it. If so which department store or website can I get it from?
            Thank You.
