Promised galley reno pictures

Galley is done. First picture is the old. Next three are the finished. Cabinet now holds stove on top, convection/toaster oven in middle, microwave on bottom followed by cutlery draw that came with the boat. There was a lot of dead space not being used.
Inside cabinet lined with sheet metal for heat protection, each appliance fused separately. Convection oven made on a pull out draw so heat can dissipate if on for a long time. (it doesn't really get that hot, but satisfies the vice admiral)
Total time 2 days. All cabinet parts from Home Depot. Total cost under $150.00.
It is an awesome feeling when you attack your boat with an electric saber saw!! and now a drink.
Sorry if pictures are sideways. Don't know how to fix

Wow, that is a huge improvement in functionality, Barrie. Very nice. Inspiring too!

Did you do any active ventilation for the ovens, or is the space around them ample for air flow? How much hot air comes out when the toaster oven is making biscuits or a pizza?

And how did you finish the real cut edges? Thank you.

Barrie,
Looks fantastic and professional.
Now, let’s talk about AMP draw each, please?
You are a 50 amp boat?

Thanks for the complements and good questions.
We have 50 amp available on board but generally run with one 30 amp cable. If we turn on the kettle, microwave and oven and my electric tooth brush all on at the same time we do pop the fuse, so we are careful. With 50 amp or the generator running no problem.
Microwave and oven are 20 amp fuses.
I was going to vent through the starboard side and bought all the fittings, but after lining the inside of the cabinets with sheet metal and electing to go with a pullout for the oven, it became over kill. The oven is only warm/hot on the top and not too bad. Having it slide out a few inches solved the concern of heat containment. We are not cooking for hours and hours.

There is space all around. No heat from the microwave.

The trim was from Home Depot. 3/4 inch aluminum angle profile with 1/4 inch on the angle. Here. https://www.homedepot.ca/product/ale...ver/1000675516

Outstanding. Thank you.

What is the purpose of the pull out for the oven? Just so the door hinges clear?

So this is my thinking. These ovens were designed to sit out on a counter top. They have a fan on the side that needs air space to work. We don't have room on our boats for something this big to sit out and be used occasionally. Storage and pulling them in and out as needed is a pain.
By installing the pull out draw is the best of both worlds. I had unused space and now have the convenience of a counter top appliance when needed.
Note: I did secure the oven to the draw so it doesn't move and the draw is locked for rough seas.
BTW: I was dealing with 1/8 to 1/4 inch space for this to work and have the oven come out and miss the microwave.

If recall correctly counter top convection/induction oven require about 6 inches of ventilation so you have overcome this requirement by mounting as a slide out. Sometimes great discoveries are made accidentally. (Ask Columbus about that) Adding metal to the cabinet was a good idea too. IF you have enough ventilation and there is no real heat build up, no reason to install a fan to vent the heat into an adjacent cabinet. Just my opinion.
Again, great job.

Berrie, in case you have not read elsewhere, I have a 30amp boat. I got tired of resetting the breakers, I put a 50 amp meter in the galley area to allow to adjust the galley load to reduce the number of times I have to reset the breakers. I call this the 30amp dance.

Ah, a slide out on a drawer. Good idea. Have you tried it with and without sliding it out? What’s the difference?

From a functional point of view there is no difference.

The I get closer to using my saw, the more I wonder about why there is so much space between the original oven cabinet and the bottom of the stove? Mine is a electric cooktop that has a crack and will get replaced by an induction unit, but still with a ton of unused space beneath it. What were they thinking?

I took the liberty of combining two of your pictures in a before and after. Beautiful work.
