I am planning to renovate my kitchen cabinets and want to use story sticks as described in a number of the kitchen cabinet books and Sven Hanson’s video clip (“Making a Story Stick”) here on the Fine Homebuilding site. What I never see is how does one make the sticks when you still have the existing cabinets and appliances installed. Surely a cabinet maker does not rip out the client’s current kitchen in order to make an accurate stick, go away for 12 weeks and make the cabinets, and then return in do the install of the new cabinets. Can anyone clarify how to make accurate sticks with the existing kitchen still in place? Thanks.
