A local mill contacted me about installing panel lock fasteners to hold 4×9 foot honeycomb panels together. These are for a sliding wall in a large room. I built the jigs and installed them and then they wanted a door installed in one of the panels. This is the door and three of the panels attached. Not fine woodworking, but it keeps the lights on. Buy the way, I am not in the picture. I posted the glue up a couple of days ago.
