So who’s air frying?

I just wired each receptacle in my kitchen on its own circuit when we built the place. I could weld in that som bich!

When I remodeled our kitchen about 10 years back, it had three circuits -- 220 for the stove and 110 for the other two available outlets and one for the light in that room and the dining room. From a 100-amp panel I had added when I built my workshop, I ran a 20amp GFI that powers the dishwasher, disposal and two outlets on either side of the sink. Then I added another 20 amp circuit for the over-the-stove microwave and two outlets on that same wall, one of which is used for a toaster oven. I used the old 15 amp light circuit for the 8 can lights I installed and the one for the old dining room powers he fridge. So far, no breakers or GFI ever tripped.

Old kitchen thru backdoor as we started to empty all the cabinets for the demolition stage.

Tony, Did you build the pot holder out of copper tubing? I was thinking something similar in mine.

Indeed. Outer frame is 1.5" and the crossbars in the center section are .75", all held together with JB Weld because I didn't want to put a torch to it. I made a jig to bend the pot hooks, which are 6 and 4 ga. ground wire. The hanging deals are copper window sash chains attached to copper-painted pipe hangers. Four large C-hooks, also painted copper, are screwed into the ceiling rafters. At the time I made it, it cost me about $65 for the materials. 

Another nicety is the center island, which is on wheels, so we can move it around and use as a serving bar. It has one door that pulls out with two large trash cans. The other three open normally. One has a lazy Susan in it and the other two have two slide-out shelves on drawer slides. Each end has shelves for cookbooks, etc. All the other lower cabinets also have pull-out shelves, and the upper cabinet shelves are adjustable by 1" increments.

The smaller cabinet right of the stove has three slide outs for spices and there are two slide-out cutting boards -- one left of stove and one right of the dishwasher, which the original kitchen didn't have. When I bought it as a Christmas present for my wife, it was her clue that I was about to provide her "kitchen to kill for" as she calls. It's about 24' long by 14' wide. 

I also built all the cabinets using recycled  3/4" pine paneling that came out of the Phoenix Coop downtown when they built Chase Field. It was anywhere from 6 to 12 inches wide and 8 to 14 feet long with a molded edge on one side. I bought the whole stack (about 6' wide by 3' tall) from a salvage yard for $80 and have used it extensively throughout the house. All the baseboard and the trim around the doors in nearly every room was molded on my shaper from it. And I still have a goodly amount left. In fact, I'm getting ready to build her a bread box that's she been on my case for over the past three years. 

This is more of the same wood used in the master bath when I redid it and the hall linen closet. Note the door trim and baseboard.
