I've been reading this forum for a while getting good advice on how to do things.

Now I'm stumped. In the house I bought (as is), the kitchen base cabinet bottom was apparently damaged from an old leak so that when the plumber put some weight on it, the particle board bottom broke. It wasn't his fault so I said I'd repair it. Countertop is newly installed; cabinets are cheapies but I can't afford to replace them now. It's 24" or so inside with three pipes coming through the bottom.

I know the best way to fix it would be to replace the cabinet but it would have to be custom built due to its size; no $$ for that, anyway.

So, I was wondering if I could or should try to cut away the broken bottom and carefully piece in a replacement with additional supports underneath. Right now I have two half sections of plywood resting on top of what is left but I don't like it.

Your suggestions are welcome!

Thanks...
