Sliding Doors


Here's a woodworking hint-if you have a delicate operation to perform don't go out for a heavy drinking session the night before! ;)
Yeah, the band played a Motorbike Rally Saturday night and the bar was free. I had one or two......
Made some great progress withthe doors though, today.(as promised, Mike) Mortise and tenons cut, grooves routed, panels sized, rasied and fitted. AND I cut the grooves to guide the sliding door and cut the matching tongues in the doors. And fitted them too! So have a look and see what you think......
Did I mention I shaped the legs?? A kind of cabriole shape, I think it's gonna work out nice.
I am really enjoying this project, the cherry is so nice to work. And I even got to use a plane on the curved legs, too! (compass plane, doesn't get out of the case often!)
So I need ideas for handles for the doors. Always get stuck on the handles........

Right nice Philly!

But you are on your own for handles!

Take care, Mike

Coo, I don't check in for a while and come back to find you've virtually already finished the next project. Sheesh, you're not going to make friends going this fast, Phil! Lookin' good.

And what is it about you and handles..?

Yeah, I know.....turn your back for a minute and another project bites the dust;)
Handles-it's like a Philly blind-spot!
Guess I'm on my own, then. Now where're those old MFI kitchen unit knobs I had left over........
