I was able to finish up the rest of the fronts this evening after a minor setback. I had one stile that was cut a little tight so I intended to widen it a little. After carefully setting the blade height and the micro adjustment on my table saw fence I removed a little material from the inside of the stile. What I discovered shortly after that was that I had failed to lock down the fence after getting it into position. Needless to say, the cutout was then really loose – leaving the panel sloppy. I really did not want one piece really loose on the door so I cut another one and rebuilt the door frame. Here is the picture of the completed set – including the door with the new part.
As you can see from this next picture I inserted a small piece of material at the ends of the slots to make the process easier. Because the end product is going to be painted (as must as I dislike the idea) I did not use a full mortise and tenon joint – just gave the appearance of doing so.
I have to start on the cabinet and drawers next so I will keep you posted. The plan is to complete the box first so that any minor adjustments that are required for fit, can be made to the drawers before I begin cutting the parts.
