Teach a girl to use the big boy tools and look what she can do

So my boyfriend taught me how to use a few power tools and we decided to redesign the galley in our 1974 34' seafarer. I'm pretty pumped at how well it turned out and had to share.

Re: Teach a girl to use the big boy tools and look what she can do

Very nice work. Even more, very nice use of space- I like the incorporation of the companionway steps- the staircase risers always represent a crapload of lost storage space on most boats.
You may rethink the anchor pull on the reefer lid in the future- at some point you are gonna have two margarita glasses laced in in the fingers of one hand, and have one finger free to lift the reefer lid so you can snag a beer or two with the other hand... and you just need ONE more finger...
