« Part 1: In the beginning... Part 2 of American Hanging Cupboard series Part 3: Cutting the tenons - What NOT to do... »

So unfortunately I got carried away actually working rather than documenting the process, but I did snap this photo before I quit for the night.

Face frame - pre joinery

So far I’ve gotten all the face frame pieces cut down to final size and have marked out the tenons on the rails. I also cut a test mortise in some scrap that went through the same milling process so I can test the fit of the tenons as I cut them. The dado stack is in the saw ready to rock. I will begin cutting the joinery tonight(I hope to get at least the face frame tenons cut) and will hopefully be able to layout the mortises on the stiles of the face frame.

As I progress I will take better care to document the process.

The frames look well dimensioned and in good shape – very good start. Good luck!
I’m watching the progress.
