« Part 14: Cut Dovetails with My Leigh D4R JIG Part 15 of Roll Around Tool Cabinet series Part 16: All Doors Finally Are Hung »

Finally, I began hanging the doors on this cabinet. After hanging the first door, I decided to change the method or steps of this process. I determined it would be easier for me to fasten the butt hinge first to the case’s face frame. Since I have routed the mortises on the doors as well as on the face frame of the case, I was confident that these mortises for the hinges were aligned very close to their final position. I did discover that micro adjustments may have to be made when I hung the first door. Those micro adjustments of position or size of the mortise would be easier made in the door rather than on the face frame. Thus, that is why I fastened all of the hinges on the face frame after hanging the first door. This is shown in the following image.

Tomorrow I will finish hanging the remaining three doors.

i also dry fitted all seven drawer parts before quitting work for the day. I took a pencil to mark the location I will route grooves so the plywood bottoms can be inserted.
