Excellent use of the space Gary and very nicely finished off. You hung the doors well. Is there a trick to getting the gap so even all the way around. I know there is adjustment in the hinges but even so, I’d struggle to get it that good.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the encouragement.

Brit – the gap is fairly straight forward. The key is to get the hinges set first at exactly the same heights from the bottom of each door. I use a marked rod, then transfer the marks from the rod to the carcass of the unit. The cheat is to fit the frame surround after the doors using a 5mm packer to maintain the gap. This means I can scribe to the walls, which are far from straight, and keep a good gap.

This job has several built in areas which I will post also.

Thanks again,

Garry
