All I had on the docket for tonight was to get the upper face frame glued on and the necessary cleanup. Done. Nothing more complicated than doing a dry fit to prep the clamps and glue that puppy down. The clamps I’m using have heads sized so that a 2×4 can be used to lift workpieces and clear the head of the clamp.
Notice the glue run near the center of the side. Not a big deal, I caught as much as possible. The rest gets scraped and sanded when the clamps are off. Easy peasy.
And here it is standing up again plus a small closeup.
So, three parts left before painting begins. I need to make the trim for the top, make the door and cut boards for the back. I won’t install the back other than to lay in on for size. The back will be tongue-and-groove 1/2” boards. I’ll leave it off until the painting is done to make things easier.
