« Part 11: If I could get at this it would be ok... Part 12 of The agony, the agony, some more agony and the ecstasy series Part 13: winging it - Bolection mouldings »

The shop’s a mess, stuff everywhere. Big tidy up tomorrow, first thing.

Carcases together, all looking good, check.

Doors made, check.

Base made, check.

Crown made, check.

That leaves all the fiddly little things, corbels, curved bolection mouldings, frieze rail. Thankfully those bits won’t need a lot of room, because room is a thing I’m almost out of. I’m glad in way that the saw died and got shunted into the garden shed, it’s freed up a couple more square feet so at least I can move things around a little more easily.

Roller stands came in useful making the base, my assembly table is only 7’ long, made the base so I can split it in 2 or three for getting it up the stairs.

Nice fit on the base, look, real sawdust and a chewed up pencil

It’s getting kinda cramped

I lost a millimetre somewhere, 3119 instead of 3200, damn.

It’s all semi sanded, just need to give it a light rub with p180 before finishing. I bought a packet of the DeWalt 6” ROS discs – the yellow Siafast ones. I know it’s only sanding discs, but the feel is way superior to any other manufacturers’ I’ve come across.

I had another two jobs come in this week, one sliding wardrobe and a ten foot built in wardrobe, as well as looking at some Mickey Mouse stuff for a Doctor. woohoo.
