I like it for being $25. I'm not going out of my way to find it or pay more for it, but if I see it at the store for $25 I'll pick up a bottle. Then again I'm not very picky, the only thing I know I don't like is Jim Bean. My normal go to is Woodford Reserve.

Yeah, it's impossible to find it here. They get it in one a month or so, sells out in minutes.

Love me some Woodford and Four Roses, plenty of Knob Creek and Bulleit in the cabinet as well here

I drink Jim Beam only when I want to mix it with coke or ginger ale. The others are for sipping straight. Took me a while to start to enjoy sipping them, but now I love it. Still can't figure out if I like Rye Whiskey or Bourbon better.

couldn't believe they wanted to charge me $800 to demolish the kitchen before they install the new Quartz counters. so being the handy man i did it myself. i would have been pissed if a contractor came in and did it and i was like "that's it?"

so here's some install pictures going on right now!

these brackets are very expensive as it allowed us to go an additional 16" past the cabinet without using leg supports which i think get in the way with chairs. each supporting bracket was $250









we already have some subway tiles picked out so i'll be working on that some time next week. i'll post some pictures when i do

okay so they just finished. they also installed the stainless steel sink which is much deeper, wider and depth compared to what we had before. this is also now a single bowl instead of a double bowl

Very easy!! Its actually a fun project and looks super clean.. as long as you have basic electrical knowledge you can do it yourself. I think Toe kick LED complements the upper cabinets very nicely and in the evening hours you can just run those lights as it gives off a very relaxing vibe. I do recommend running the same LED strip to ensure color is the same.. now that you did white quartz your undercab is going to pop a lot more

Since you already have undercab on a switch you need to get the low voltage wire from the undercab down to the toe kick.. i usually route inside cabinet in the corner and use these plastic clips to keep the wire organized so its not noticeable.. once the wire is down in the correct location, install aluminum channels, tape the strip inside channel put the cover on top.. done deal.. I also suggest getting these LV transformers as they have "soft on / soft off" for the ultimate pop when they come on..

you seem to do everything yourself so i'll just post the amazon links and i'm sure you'll know what to do

i have back lighted just about everything.. love the look.. i.e. baths i have them hooked up on vacancy switch so as soon as you open the door they are coming on.. no need to turn the light on.. and set to turn off in 3 min if no motion is present.. back light mirror and toe kicks..

LED strip: Buy as much as you need
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

LW Wire: Run from transformer to your LED strips
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Misc Connectors: If you dont want to solder you can use these to attach to LED strip then just use butt connectors to connect to LV wire.
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

LED mounting channels with covers:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

MISC connectors: If you're back-lighting a mirror these are useful so you're not bending the strip instead you will cut 4 pieces of strip and use thee to connect to your LV feed. No soldering
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Solder butt connectors: The best, you just need a cig lighter.. use this to connect misc connectors to your LV feed wire for best connection
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Wire cable organizer: For inside cabinets, etc for your LV wire feed

I forgot to add.. I would also add it under your island front overhang.. (not on island toe kick as it would be too much) I see your island already has power so it should be super easy..

Then just get some Lutron Caseta Wireless dimmers and you're set.. get them all on a schedule 30 min before sunset and off whenever you like.. throw some screwless Lutron Claro wall plates for the icing on the cake..

so if your undercabinet LED lighting is a "strip style" then you have a low voltage wire that feeds the strip from wherever your transformer is located. If its not strip style and you just have LED tube style bulb in those big fixtures, you can rip all that out and replace it with strip lighting which looks much cleaner..

Regarding toe kick, all you need to do is add another low voltage feed from your transformer and bring it down to toe kick area. Easiest way is cut a hole in back of cabinet so you can fish the wire from upper cabinets into lower. Once you're in lower cabinet just run the wire on inside of cabinet corners and come down to toe kick where you make a little hole and feed the wire into it. Then you install your aluminum channels and connect it to your feed. Since you have dishwasher / stove also running in toe kick all you do is daisy chain the LED strip from toe kick and you move from one cabinet to the other.. PM me with any questions.. Also here is a marked up image of one of your pics and how to route the wire and where to mount the aluminum channel. The channels come with plastic clips which hold the channel in place.. ive also included finished photos of what i did at my place to give you an idea of overall look.. put it this way i never need to turn my recessed lights where i have LED it produces that much light..

I think you did a great job; you're just great. I am also watching various training videos on arranging my own house since I plan to buy my own home soon. After all, I am already 28 years old; I have a wife; why not start thinking about children? But this is possible only when there is decent housing. So far, I am only studying various services and offices that can help me buy a house, but I have not decided what service I have to contact. My friends recommended affordable house and lot to me, as they used the services of these people and were satisfied. So far, I'm still looking closely, so if you have any thoughts about this, I will be happy to hear any thoughts from you
