How to Repair Kitchen Shelf

Fig.1 Large hole
By Gary Boutin

Supplies and Tools:
Measuring tape
2x4 hardboard 3/8 inch

Mr. Jane owns a home in La Hambra, California. He called because his wife kept loosing little kitchen items in the ventilation system. The top shelf has a 6 inch square hole and he wanted it repaired. 

This post shows the five steps to repairing a shelf that was damaged. 

Step 1: Identify the problem. The shelf in Fig.1 below shows that a pipe had been placed to supply air vent to the stove area. Instead of repairing the shelf, a hole was left and kitchen and items always fell into the second shelf and the metal piping vent system.
Step 2: Measure the shelf. Fig.2 shows the shelf measured the width. Fig.3 shows the shelf measures length.

Step 4: Fig.5 shows a handsaw following a pencil line beginning to cut the kitchen shelf.

Step 5: Fig.6 shows the shelf has been placed inside the cabinet and Fig.7 shows the the shelf is now being used in the kitchen. This job is finished and Mr. Jane was pleased that the job was done.
