Part 1: The deal is...

My good mate Col [ of jewellery box fame] met a couple who are doing up a catamaran… and they started to sand the louvred cupboard doors… made from NZ Kauri BTW…. and then decided that was too much …. and now want to have the whole 16 handcrafted in New Guinea Rosewood… as he is not really setup for door production [and not much NGR ], he took their number and contacted me…I rang them and they came over with all the doors in the back of the car…. A de...

Here is what I got up to yesterday… first off here are the original doors from the catamaran. 4 larger doors.6 medium doors.12 small doors.Yes I can add too.. was not 16 but a total of 22 doors that had to be replicated… well not the louvre centre…Not including the 2 small flap doors… After a hour or so of discussing the design, the clients decided on frame and raised panel construction and to fit the cabinets in with the other timber trim in the cabin…. I...

Part 3: Rails and Stiles.

08-19-2010 01:27 AM by degoose | 12 comments »

Having dressed all the timber to size… the next job is to make the frame..I use Cope and Stick construction.. also known as Frame and PanelFirst using a Mitre Express and Mitre 2000 gauge with stop attached… all the rails [horizontal parts] were cut to size …. this method ensures accuracy… the Stiles [ or the vertical parts of the frame…] are left over long… this means that a little extra protrudes past the rails… these are called ‘horns’ ...

Part 4: Horns on the rails and styles...

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 ...

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 th...

Part 6: Update...profiles.

Taken longer than expected..due to the additional steps to each of these doors…and the fact that I keep putting it off… sidetracked with other projects.. As you can see all the mortices and tenons have been cut…[using the Leight FMT] I have also cut the Chamfers on the inside edges of the door frames… this was done with a piloted chamfering router bit while the frames were clamped together… You will also notice that I have taken the time and effort to ma...

Part 7: Final straight...

Coming down the home straight with these doors. Here is a quick shot of the set up for the slot cutting on the old router table.. Finished the rebates on the panels… back 4 mm and the front 7 mm Using the Incra Fence and the Woodpecker Unilift made it easy to switch from one height to another … Moved the blade on the TS to 45 degrees and positioned the fence for the bevel cuts on the front of the panels.. A Wixey Digital Ange Guide is very useful here.. A...
