« Part 31: Shoe Rack Cabinet Framework continues and door work starts Part 32 of Furniture series Part 33: Shoe Rack Cabinet top »

Well I repaired all the panels changed a couple of frame pieces with router goofs in them and glued everything together.

Spent all day perfecting repairs and reworking little annoying bits of chip out and the likes.

I have taken a few pictures of the actual framework in a hope that I can find a solution to my hinge dielema.

The promlem only effects the two lower swinging doors.

The dimensions of the Face frame are.
1 At the Front about 35mm
2. At the back 25mm
3. The door width and hence the face frame is 20 mm.

The hinges:

The hinge problem was my mistake. when I dreamed up the design I found some hinge pictures in the net and built the frame to suit, silly move.

Although I found Blum hinges they are not available in Australia, very odd but I need to modify the build by adding blocks at the sides behind the face frame to simulate a frameless cabinet.

Hello Robert

Unfortunately we are unable to supply this item.

As Blum do not stock in the Australian market

The top is next.

So another post made the supreme sacrifice.

You are right potzzy, it is looking good, however, you are forever the optimist… Once the master of the house starts to put her shoes in there, POT (Poor Old Rob) wont find room even for a skinny bicycle pump... not only that… ya gonna need a bigger loada timber to build a few more.

r’c’, you keep skirting the issue… what objection do you have to setting up a US address? You would have been installing the hinges now if you bit the bullet when lack of availability was first mentioned.
