Well today I got the doors hung. I still have one door to finish carving and put finish on, but I wanted to see how it was going to look.
The soss hinges worked out nice and I am able to open the doors nearly 180 degrees.
I ended up with a great fit, they close with almost no gap. I set the first door up and using that in I set the second in place. I have yet to install the tension catches that will hold the doors shut, but so far so good.
When I was carving the door frames my boggs curved spokeshave came in handy and it was nice to use a trick of taking off the handles to get into tight spaces. I figured this one out during a chair build I had, but I have also seen Curtis Buchanan use this same trick.
Yesterday we had some green wood we were milling up and it needed to have the ends waxed so I pulled out my crock pot I keep my wax in and warmed it up. I had lost my chunk I used to put on my planes and saws so I snuck into the art room which is behind the chairman sign and grabbed a soap mold and made some nice sea shells of paraffin wax.
I also stuck the drawer handle on the saw till today which looks nice..
Getting closer every day to building that bench I know you are all excited to see. Me too!
Have a nice weekend and have fun woodworking!
