Up to Speed... or not?
Well with the new door parts ready to go, I could pick up a little momentum again.
Slip tenons for all corners of the door. This time the rails and styles are going to be flush, pictured here trying to achieve just that.
Mullions, pieces separating the angled glass. on the way to fitting in the door frame with notches.
Got to mocking up door pulls. I imagine putting a pull on the side of the door and creating a notch out of the cabinet side for a hopefully pleasant detail of a pull :).
Anywho, went on to making "mortises" for the French Cleat I will be using to hang this cabinet. I've seen people just screw their cleats to the back panel but I'm going with the same kind of "theory" as with the brass brackets I normally use. I want to screw the cleat into the sides of the cabinet which is a load-bearing component of the cabinet.
Quickly made a little 45 degree block to help chop a mating angled mortise for the cleat.
The bottom catch of the cleat, which will be mounted on the wall, has a fat 1/16" play horizontally to make life easier when hanging the cabinet.
I was looking to start the notch in the cabinet side for the pull. so I hung the door as it would be to accurately mark where it will go when. I found that the door MOVED on me AGAIN! Gahhhh. When I fit and hung the door originally it wall all nice and planer. Now, the hinge side is fine, the top right corner of the door mates the cabinet as it did but the bottom corner now is a good 1/16" out of line WTF!!?? >:O ahhhh!!!
At the moment I don't really know what to do about it. Getting upset I just don't want to think about it and hope the door will correct itself, though I doubt it will happen :/.
I really don't want to have to remake this door AGAIN especially when I didn't screw it up :(.
Well I'm not going to be able to get in the shop tomorrow, well see how it looks when I get back to it. Here's hoping!
