Installing Kitchen End Panels & Between Appliances | The Carpenter's Daughter

Installing Kitchen End Panels & Between Appliances | The Carpenter's Daughter

Here’s how I fitted the end panels between our washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer. White goods if you will.

However, I failed scribing on the end panel where the utility kitchen starts. I wasn’t happy with the finish, so I used it to trace around. Hope it’s useful!

    Thanks for the video…
    Wearing a mask for chopping an occasional piece of MDF seems a bit overkill

    Hi, thanks for a great tutorial! We just ordered a new washing machine and heat pump tumble dryer. Just wondering how much space we should allow between them because the recess size is 50mm wider than the actual width. Seems like you need 25mm either side, so was concerned about putting panels too tight. Appreciate your advice, thanks again!

    Good video! Is that a Dakota kitchen? Looks like the one you can get in Wickes etc. Where did you get the end panel from too please?

    To avoid chipping – Router. That's why they are used on worktops. For 18mm panels only needs to be a 1/4" machine. Or cut the piece long and then use a belt sander.

    Hi! Loving your videos which I've just discovered while looking up how to fit my new utility units! I am wondering if you can tell me 1. which hand saw you use to cut the panels and 2. if you can recommend how I secure worktop over two appliances which will have no base units to secure it to? Will it be best to get some heavy duty brackets to attach to the adjacent end panel of the larder unit? Thank you! Ruth

    If the worktop is quartz, how do you secure the middle panel between appliances, as you can't screw L plates into quartz?

    You need to buy a rail saw, best thing ever created since the wheel

    When you can't clamp the panel tightly. Put the screw almost all the way in then back it out so it's only in one side of what your fixing. Then push as tightly as you can and put the screw the whole way. That should pull them together tighter

    If you're having trouble with chipping try changing the jigsaw blade for a down cutting blade. Or using a skill saw cut from the back side. Although this wont help if you need both sides looking clean

    Perfect timing! Just moved into our new home and a small utility room that needs a bit of reconfiguring. Thus video has given me the confidence to have a go at putting in a supporting/dividing panel myself. Thank you!!

    I usually leave the panels between appliances about 2inches away from the wall at the back to leave room for pipes and cables.

    Thanks for sharing! I always learn something from your channel. I'm more a "Measure once, cut twice and complain it's still too short" kind of handyman.

    It is not what others think and say that matters! …. It is what You think that does!
    The only tip I would give would be to scribe the rear face of the inter-appliance panels!

    Simply holding a block of wood against the pane at its widest gap from the wall, holding a marker (pencil or sharpie) against the cut edge and dragging the block up or down to leave a line the exact width of the gap. Easy to do … harder to explain ;0)

    An alternative way to do it is to put the panel in place but forward with the front face extended the width of your block. Then simply scribe your line down the rear of the panel giving the panel an exact fit from the rear wall to the front face!

    Sharpie marks can be removed by rubbing fresh sharpie over the offending mark and immediately before it dries with a paper towel! ….. This works for permanent markers!
