Doors pretty much done

February 6, 2010

Agree with you there Ron — nice to have the smell of maple in the basement instead of coffee and computers. Must get to this stuff more.

The doors don’t seem so bad now that I have them assembled. Not ultra super precision work, but that is a topic for another post. There are the Norm types of the world that would go for laser precision for every step, and then there are the Roy Underhill types (more my kin) who have a good sense of the finished product and know how to adjust or just not stress out along the way. Probably the same with cooking.

At any rate, here are the doors:

Next step will be to sand them down, square them up and glue, then when ready fit to the case. That will give me a good excuse to sharpen my planes so that they are wicked enough to take on the maple end grain. Yowza.
