« Part 6: Foot work completed, almost Part 7 of DVD Cabinet of Ash series Part 8: Just catching up.. »

Sounds easy enough? First need to haul a 8-1/2’ long 1×6 to the shop….through a Kitchen with 7’ ceilings

From the dining room, with 9’ ceilings….headed for the house’s back door…get past the stove..

Hang a right ( hand held camera, sorry), heading for the 1st door on the right….

Had the signs on the door, even..

Door opens out, of course, to reveal this scary sight..

Ummmm, paint was there when we arrived…meh. Circled area is right above the 4th step from the bottom….seems to be a floor joist….5’ above the step….and, not only long boards hit this spot..

had put a couple “knots” on the top of my head….IF you manage to get all the way to the bottom of the steps, you have to do a “Left Face!”

Then, plop the plank down…

One end on the bench’s vise, the other?

Trash can does have a use!. Did a bit of measuring, and figuring…came up with a length to cut..24”, marked that

Square and knife to mark a line for the saw to follow…slide the plank out a bit, so I don’t cut into the bench (again?) circled area..

Not the easiest to clamp into the vise..

One edge was almost straight, but not the other…Saw?

Atkins No. 65, 8ppi, 26” length…test drive to see IF it will need sharpened…then repeat…to get 2 blanks…

Hmmm, we have work to do….began by jointing the good edge…

Wanted the two to match, so when I clamp the pair into the leg vise, I keep the jointed edges flush with each other..don’t need a tapered edge..

No. 6 was polishing the high spots….needed to joint these edges…instead….called in the rough crew..

Millers Falls #14 Jack plane, then the Stanley #5-1/2…got the edges jointed straight and square…

Then open the “book” up and check for gaps…

Should do the job…next, a bead of glue on one edge, moosh the top piece down into the glue, until I feel it “stick”,
Then a few clamps & cauls…

Trying to decide which looks better…this face?

Or this? Let this sit a day, or two…

Once one set of clamps come off, more go on…speed square to guide a trim saw..

6” SKIL….to square the ends a bit…then start on flattening the panel…still 4/4 rough sawn..

Almost got this face done….feet were cramping, T-shirt was trying to run away…time to quit for a while…

Well, it is a start on the door for this cabinet..stay tuned
