« Part 3: Rails and Stiles. Part 4 of Catamaran Cupboard Door Remake... series Part 5: Mortise and tenon... »

I mentioned in an earlier post about making the styles over long.. so that when you dry fit the panel there is a little extra… called Horns… to assist in the taking the frame back apart..
Here is a quick shot of the frame with Horns…

And a few more shots of the book matched pieces that will be cut to size and then milled into the panels…

This last pic is of the rails and styles routed with the other profile not shown  in the last post…

I will be assembling the doors in the next few days and then it is off to the boatyard to check the fit… and make any adjustments prior to finish…

It looks like your rail and stile bit did a really clean job too. Joints look nice and tight.

Bet you’re glad you’re not doing louvres.

You’re doing a great job Larry. No surprise there though.

Expert level work as always Larry.
Those book matched panels are going to look exquisite.

Naiz Larry. Carry all wood up the boat, then down the boat. Uppps, forgot the hammer, up the boat again, down the boat. Uppps forgot to measure twice….. Wow, I´m tired

Thank you for the horn trick. Didn´t know that. however I am quite stingy with wood, so my horns will be 1/8 inch or less.

I´ll be awaiting a new Lazy Larry with the horn leftovers, lol
