Day 9 – Sacristy cabinet

The last two components to be made, for the cabinet, are the locking door and the rear panel. I decided to go with cedar for the rear panel instead of plywood. This thing is heavy enough. Also, it will be holding rolls of cloth so it will help keep bugs out. The hinges worked well, The instructions with this component were very accurate (in metric, but accurate). I did a test door, just in case these instructions failed me as well… Next was the lock, A lot of careful layout and chisel work. I only managed to slice my fingers four times, so, not too bad. The cherry stain will cover the blood stains nicely. Once the lock was located, I routed out the hole for the escutcheon (the keyhole piece). After the door was done, I laid out the four pieces for the rear panel, marked and drilled the pocket hole locations, then assembled it. I routed out the dado that will receive the cedar and did a test fit. Tomorrow I will lay in the cedar, then I will start staining. Since I had so much fun installing the drawer slides, I have decided not to ever remove them again. This means that I don’t think it will be necessary to finish the inside…
