Why we were tired then
Last week we miiled the door parts, routed tongue and groove joints, made breadboard ends, and tennons on the beadboard. The next day we v-grooved all of the beadboard which requires 3 separate set-ups. Above: Kristin runs grooves in the stock. Behind her you can see a doweling machne with pneumatic holddown, a line boring machine for 32 mm work, and to the right the big altendorf sliding table saw (requires two to operate).
Why we’re tired now
Today we fit all the doors to the face frames. A
First: Laying out the beadboard then trimming it to width.
Second: Squaring up the breadboard grooves.
Third: Once the beadboard fits across the width of the door we treat it like a panel and notch the side pieces to fit into the breadboard ends. A little chisel work here also. Here’s a shot of the dozuki in action.
Fourth: Fit the ends.
Fifth: Trim the top rail so that the door fits in the cabinet opening.
Finally they fit! We like ‘em!
Now just about a day more for clean-up, creating z-braces, glue up, and sanding!
