I removed my microwave
and am going to convert that space into either drawers or a cabinet with 2 shelves. I want this to be easily removable if I or a future owner want to put the microwave
Think of a box open on the front. That is what currently exists and the microwave
sits in the box. On the left side, there is only half a side; in other words, the bottom extends out 11", but the side is only 5". So I need to add a piece of fiberglass 6" x 11" to extend the side.
There is already the shelf on the bottom which held the microwave, so the bottom is not an issue. There is fiberglass on top and on the right side, so those aren't an issue.
I cut a piece of fiberglass from some scraps I got from Parkliner
to fit the open area on the left side. I am going to fasten wood to the fiberglass and then use angle brackets to the new fiberglass to the bottom and already existing fiberglass.
So the one issue I can't figure out is how to dress up the seam where the 6" x 11" piece of fiberglass matches up with existing fiberglass. I don't want to bond them together, because I may want to remove it in the future. What would make a nice looking seam? (6" long)
Seam - I can slide the lower piece a little to left or right
Holding the piece in place. This is what the box will look like.
I think I will use 3M tape to attach angle brackets to fiberglass and then screw into the bottom and side.
