Another Step Closer…
Tonight, I sprayed the final coat of lacquer and painted the groove in the door black.
Tomorrow I will hang the door first thing in the morning. The overnight dry time will allow the finish to cure sufficiently so that it may be handled with a hard finish.
I installed the small door a few days ago and it went smoothly. The small door only weighs 48 lbs. The big one is 108 lbs. and keep in mind it is a hollow core door.
Go to this link and click on the album labeled “Cooper Closet” http://gallery.mac.com/toddclippinger.
I am still adding photos daily and there are 215 photos over several pages.
If you are new to woodworking you may find this visually informative. This project has been documented step-by-step for the clients to follow along. You will see everything from design to general construction, veneering, hollow core door fabrication, dye work, and finishing.
Well I better get going and get rested up for a big day of install tomorrow.
Peace, Love, and Woodworking
