« Part 9: Drawers & Hardware Part 10 of Router Cabinet Redo series Part 11: The cabinet is made »

So I am finally in the home stretch..

I on the part of the project that is dealing with all the doors in the project. I am placing a door to the right of the router cavity that will allow me access to the wires for the big paddle switch I will be installing on the right side of the cabinet.. as I said before I used this paddle switch and its a great piece of safety equipment.

The door is a solid oak panel with recess spring loaded hinges a fellow LJ advised me to get because it allows you 3 ways to install the hinges, recessed, partially recessed and regular use when using faceframes and it got them..Thanks goes out to TraylorPark...

The other doors I have completed is the bottom cavity doors that I am not sure what to use it for yet, but whatever it is you will not be able to see them..

Although I wish I could of used solid oak panel on this I ran out of wood and I decided in keeping with the entire panel assembly for this project I would use poplar plywood with solid oak stiles… you can see all the pics below..

NEXT: I will be building the final door to enclose the router cavity!!!!
