Truly invisible solution to keep door from banging against hood?

posted by: bluekitobsessed on 07.01.2008 at 11:18 am in Kitchens Forum

Is there a truly invisible solution to keeping an upper cabinet door from banging against a range hood? I don't even want to see clear silicone bumper pads on either the cabinet or the side of the hood, as both are in a prominent location. (I may try the silicone bumper pads on the other side of the range hood where they would be unobtrusive.) The cabinet hinges look complicated to my un-DIY eye. Here's a pic:

Beeswax Oil at reasonable price anywhere?

I have about 90 sq ft of soapstone and am using mineral oil. I read about the beeswax-mineral oil blend that is supposed to go on much easier, but when I did a search for it, I only found it for about $10 for a few ounces. I would be lucky to get two applications from one of these containers.

I remember from an old soapstone thread that someone ordered a gallon of this online and paid about $50. Does anyone know who might sell this? My elbows are at stake!

We just moved into our new home and just love, love, love our kitchen. We used soapstone on the perimeter counters and White America quartzite on the island. White America looks like carrara marble but behaves like granite. As soon as we install the range backsplash tile, I'll post pictures.

I've been absent from the forums for a while because we have been so busy with the move, and 10 days after we moved in, we had Italian relatives visit for 3 weeks. Because none of them spoke English, I basically had to be with them 24/7. They've been gone 1 week, and I am just beginning to breathe again.

Thanks for any leads on the beeswax oil.
