Wall Cabinet Wrap Up
Seems as though it has been a while since the last post on this.
Pictured is mortise making for door hinges. This was just after I refinished my butt chisel handles. You can see the difference between those and the original finish on the bench chisel.
I think this is a good thing to be able to do. I like to know that I can make these kinds of panes fit just right. Not tight but not sloppy. It allows me to work with smaller tolerances, which I like.
Once the glass was cut and put into place I marked the mullions on the sticks that hold the glass in place. Pictured above was after cutting the waste with the band saw. Used chisels to fit and clean them up.
Actually it is done. Cleaned up the sticks, softened their edges, glued the pull in place, finished everything that needed finish, installed glass into the door, and hung the door. :D
Alas I have another waiting game. I ordered a pair of studio strobes (photo flash lights) and was given notice a couple days later the they are on back order. They say it will take another week or two but I have had bad experience with things on back order in the past :/.
While I'm waiting for those I will of course resume work on the Walnut Desk :).
