Last go-round, I insisted the project was moving along quickly. Hah. Today it was still like this (foot in the picture and all), on the floor of my shop.
Some planing of the inside face got the post-glueup faces cleaned up, then the #62 was called on to get the mirror doorframe to size for the cabinet’s overall frame.
Now onto some hinges. Old hinges, found screws in the wood screw drawer (which was tough, eight of them rqd), got to do some chislin’ and malletin’ work, which was nice.
Drilled the holes with a Mohawk-Shelburne eggbeater.
And the hinged door fit too!
Stuff the mirror inside the back rebate (with a bit of silicone caulk applied for a bedding), then clamped all into place so the caulk has time to set up.
Time to hit the cabinet with primer and get ready for finishing overall! Thanks for looking (and it was nice to get back into the shop!!)
