Help me finish my cabinets...

I need to enclose my microwave into the built in space in my cabinets. The space is to large for new microwave. I wanted to attempt to do this myself since it is such a small job, hard to get a contractor out for this... The microwave needs to be raised slightly and I wanted to enclose with some type of simple material so I can install some pretty ceramic tile around the edges. Any suggestions???

Re: Help me finish my cabinets...

make a box to set the microwave on to raise and center it.

fill in the space around the outside with a filler frame then tile over it.

Don't get it too tight, sometimes you'll need to take out that microwave.

Thanks for your help. Can I find the filler frame at Lowes or do I have to go somewhere else???
