    If you are considering lower cabinets for any part of the re- do, I would suggest using upper cabinets. They aren't as deep and you will have more open floor space. The shallower cabinets also offer better organization because things can't get lost in the back. Machines will fit and so will fabric folds and just about everything else you might want to store out of site. Good luck with your re- do.

    It sounds like I have the same set up you have. Heres what we did For the support under the counter top we used unfinished cabinets. OneOne end the cabinets is all drawers, other end has one drawer with a cabinet underneath and then in the corner where they meet have a corner cabinet (no lazy susan) just a shelf in it.

    My cutting table with either have shelves under it or be an old dresser. (we haven't gotten that far yet)
    Be sure and post pic when you get it all set up please.

    cutting table idea

    My husband bought a hollow core door that was primed put a nice book shelf on each end it is just the perfect height for cutting. My neighbor liked mine so much she made one for herself.

    we used upper cabinets as base cabinets in part of the kitchen remodel in 2007. Perfect depth for tupperware etc. Great for those challenging ares where floor space is at a premium.
