Friday rants: measure twice, cut never

So I measured the space for our new refrigerator and measured the refrigerators at the store and checked the measurements online.

It never once occurred to me to measure the height.

They just delivered it and of course it’s 1/2″ too tall to fit under our cabinet. It’s well below the cabinet shelf, so I think we can just cut out the bottom of the facing…but come on, like I know what kind of tool to use to do that. Suggestions?

    Hi Heather,
    Grandpa said that you could use a key-hole saw. You drill a small hole and then put the saw in the hole and saw across the bottom. He said that if you go to a place like Home Depot and tell them what your problem is they will tell you what you can use. I thought maybe you could sand it off because it is only a half inch but he said it would take a long time and an electric sander.

    Maybe you have it all done by now. Love, Grandma
