This is the part I was a bit concerned about. Making the hutch doors. Because they are fairly tall and slender I was a little worried about how well they would support the weight of the glass and making them with out a twist. But what the heck…everyone else does it.
So after ripping the 4/4 stock to 2” wide I sent it through the planer to bring it down to 3/4” in hind site 7/8” might have been a better option.
Cutting the stock to length.
After pre drilling it’s chopping time again.
The tenons were cut on the table saw. I was pretty confident they were straight and parallel.
In an effort to keep the mortice sides straight I used a block clamped to the top of the work piece to try to keep the chisel straight up and down.
On to the router table to cut the rabbets for the glass.
After the dry fit it was time for the glue up.
I had made the doors almost the same size as the opening, so now I had to plane them to the correct size.
A quick and simple jig for drilling the peg holes in the corners.
Trim and sand the pegs.
These are the completed doors. Stained and hinges installed.
I didn’t realize till later that 2 of the doors were sitting on a piece of scrap. Kind buggers the picture.
Another good photo op. gone ta Hell.
The glass and handles won’t be installed until the final assembly to avoid damage.
That’s it for now.
Till next time
