« Part 27: Gluing up the doors Part 28 of Building a brace till series Part 29: Hanging a door »

Another short session in the shop today, but I got the edges of the doors planed flat with a block plane.

Then I put on a coat of BLO.

Wiped off the excess with a rag.

And set the doors on a scrap of cardboard to dry.

Hopefully tomorrow or Saturday I can get them hung.

Those turned put nice Dave, after hanging I presume you are going to fit the inside for hanging tools.

Exactly, Eric. I don’t want to fit them for tools without seeing how those tools are going to interact with the braces hanging in the till.

Fitting the inside out, can be difficult at times.

Yeah. One side will be eggbeaters, but the spacing of the slots in the holder will require some cogitating. And I typically peg things in with dowels once I’m sure they fit, but those can be drilled from the outside pretty easily.

Looking good Dave, awaiting the big reveal – the till in use. Two thumbs up.

Well, it’s been in use for quite a while, Tom. I supposed I’m approaching the point where a picture of it fully loaded is due, though. ;-)

I think tomorrow is a day with almost zero shop time, but hopefully this weekend…
