Good Evening Esteemed Lumberjocks,
I am back hoping to access your expertize and knowledge as I tackle a project in the garage. I have been working on some built in cabinets for the garage. The plans came from a DIY or Handyman online publication ( I believe this is the link http://www.familyhandyman.com/DIY-Projects/Home-Organization/Garage-Storage/installing-large-garage-cabinets/Step-By-Step) The article speaks of getting them done on a Saturday, I’m several months into them. I’m slow and then some. The plan calls for sliding door, but I will eventually get to hanging/hinged doors. I have a rail and stile router bit which I found once for a good price and figured will use some day. That day nears.
I am uploading some pictures to show my progress and pose my questions. I guess I’ll be making panel doors. for the inside I plan on using 1/4 inch hardboard. The cabinets are built with 3/4” chinese birch ply and ripped 2X4 for the framework. Everything will be painted white in time. The section dividers I have “pocket holed” to help attach a face frame. I plan on getting poplar 4S (?) from HD or Lowes for the face frame and the doors stiles and rails. The bays are not all the exact same size, they approximate 42 high by 28 wide.
Here’s my questions, if it were you, what dimension would you use for the face frame, where the hinges will be attached. How about for the doors stiles and rails? , and how many inexpensive (not to say cheap) hinges would each door take? and what kind of hinge will fit the inexpensive bill, do the job adequately and won’t need to be mortised?
I am including some pictures of the work in progress to get you an idea of what I’m trying to complete.
As always, thanks for reading, your time and willingness to share.
Best Regards, Mario
