« Part 23: Look Boss, De Plane Part 24 of Shop Remodel series Part 25: Let's See What's Behind Door #1 »

Today was a good day! I started out the day by taking the advise many of you had and added a third leaf inlay to the left door face. I then spent the rest of the day carving the door frames where they met the panels to facilitate gluing them up. This way I wouldn’t have to worry about possibly nicking the panels when I carve the doors the rest of the way.

I got my hardware in the mail for the workbench!! Very excited to get it especially when I am so close to being done with the cabinets. I will spend tomorrow carving the doors and I am not sure if I will get them hung or not, but I think I am going along well.

Here is the pictures for today..

Sorry, not too many pictures today. If you want to know more about how the day went, just stare at the first picture for about 6 hours ;)

Take care all and thanks,

-- Brian Noel

Well, I stared at the first pic, just not for 6 hours! Early Christmas with all the hardware arriving!

Well … THAT’S 5&1/2 hours of my life I want back! :-)

And I’m thinking you better never try to build and sell another set of cabinets like these. NO ONE could ever afford them! These things belong in a gallery .

No 6 hours here either, but can well imagine the fine (as in lots of little) work involved in nearing the end of your fine (wonderful ) cabinets.
