« Part 5: Mortise and tenon... Part 6 of Catamaran Cupboard Door Remake... series Part 7: Final straight... »

Taken longer than expected..due to the additional steps to each of these doors…and the fact that I keep putting it off… sidetracked with other projects..

As you can see all the mortices and tenons have been cut…[using the Leight FMT]

I have also cut the Chamfers on the inside edges of the door frames… this was done with a piloted chamfering router bit while the frames were clamped together…

You will also notice that I have taken the time and effort to match the grains both in the styles… and across the rails… these are pairs of small doors…12 all together…

The other doors are all one per opening but I still tried to cut the parts from one piece of timber…

A slot cutting bit was set in the old router table and the groove for the floating panel cut…

These are all done now… just need to cut rebates fore and aft on the panels.. 4 mm at the back and 7 mm in the front and then using a V-groove bit …make a chamfer on the raised panel… When assembled the door will have a Vee profile….

So that is where I am up to….. in the workshop doing a bit more routing…

stay tuned…

Hope the captain doesn´t change once again the design. He doesn´t seem to be in a hurry does he?

Take care

Grain matching is an art that I have yet to pay attention to. Maybe in a couple of years.

great job on those doors.

Hey Larry,
Nice to see you back in the shop.
I have never seen a slot cutter used after assembly for this before. I guess this has to be done before glue-up (If I understand what you are doing). Then you will round the corners of the panels?

Fine work Larry! I’m interested to see how you make the louvered panels. I’m looking for a better method than I used for a door that I made last year. Do you already have the jig made?
