Awhile ago, when our kitchen mdf cabinets began to fall apart, my wife said she thought we should consider making some changes. I had watched some videos of guys planing boards with traditional hand tools and declared, “No problem honey, I could do that.”
There is some debate about whether we are now 18 months or 3 years into the project. A friend recently pointed out that, depending on where we place the start date, it could be both.
It has been interesting.
Much of the time has been spent when I realize that something I had planned to do can’t be done, or can’t be done by me. Much of the rest because I begin something without having thought how it will be completed. Cabinet doors hinges are a good example of this. The carcass is built, and then I realize that the hinges are not made of moldable magic and so, I have to figure out a way to have a hinge work on what I’ve built. Anyway, plenty learned at this stage and undoubtedly plenty more to come.
I’ll post pictures of where we started, what we are shooting for, and where we are now.
