« Part 4: Horns on the rails and styles... Part 5 of Catamaran Cupboard Door Remake... series Part 6: Update...profiles. »

I know that it is a while since I have posted more on this project… halfway throughout the build using cope and stick frame joinery….change of plan from customer…
Now I have to make the doors with mortise and tenon… so yesterday I cut the 98 mortises and 98 tenons and got ready to bevel the inside edges and cut the groove for the panel…This was after remilling all the frame material..
Good thing though… I managed to book match all the inside stiles for the pairs of doors and cut all the rails so that they flow across the doors…Still a lot more work… which the customer has offered extra payment…

Hi Larry. The doors frames look good and will be better with M/T joints.

What a nice job and certainly a lot of work! Are those louvered panels that you are going to install. Did you make them as well? I’m asking because last May I made a louver door for my husband’s boat. It seems that making a louver panel looks easier than routing all the grooves for each slat separately. Thanks for any info on this.

This is SO much better than the guy who bought the teak louvered cabinet door at West Marine and posted it as a project! Nicely done sir…

I was wondering how this was going! Seems like your client understands to cost of a reset – at least I hope so. I’m looking forward to seeing the final installation! Thanks for the update.
