I have 1950s American Standard kitchen cabinets. I want to put in a dishwasher, which means removing one of them. I don't want to destroy it because it's irreplaceable in my area.
I've hit one roadblock after another due to lack of info online, and now I'm stuck again. I pulled the original laminate counter off, disconnected the bolts holding it to the neighboring cabinets, and found the hidden wall screw, but its also joined to neighboring cabinets with a piece of metal that I have no idea how to remove. Please help. Edit: I had to screenshot the photos and upload them. Sorry if the quality is poor. Edit2: I got it out. The metal straps were the last thing holding it in. If anyone needs this in the future there are 2 bolts inside the front shelf brackets on each side, two screws along the underside of the face that connects it to the countertop, the metal straps, and 2 screws into the wall along the top rear of the cabinet. You'll need to take out the drawer to reach the countertop screws and remove thr counter for the back screws and the metal joiner straps. You can use a hooked pick to pull the tabs of the straps out if and then they should slide forward and off. The toekick does not come off at all, it's part of the cabinet frame. The rest is elbow grease and wiggling it up over the lip of any flooring you may have.
I did end up mostly destroying the left metal strap, but since there won't be a cabinet there anyways it doesn't matter. The right one I think I can bend back into shape.
