I don’t know about the rest of you, but glue up stresses me out. Even though we had dry fit the doors, I feel that time crunch as soon as I spread the glue.These doors are only held together by tiny tenons on the left and right beadboard pieces.
- Set out the clamps and separate the breadboard end to expose the tenons.
- Glue the tenons of the outer beadboard
- Clamp it
- Check for square by measuring across the diagonals
- Apply diagonal pressure if necessary (Squeeze the long side).
- Check for square again
Repeated this for all six doors as sweat dripped down.
Took about two hours. Only one door fought us a little.
Here are the three views of the doors drying.
p.s. I was inspired by Sawsust2’s comments to retitle this blog.
