Midnight Woodworking


Ironing board storage cabinet – day 5

The evening did not start well. Not working from a set of plans is really becoming a problem. I cut the top and the bottom so I could do a dry-fit and check everything out. The top was 1-1/4″ too short so I quickly cut and planed a strip to add to the top. While that was glueing up, I started on the bottom. I drilled pocket holes and added a 2″ kick to the front. I managed to break the brad point off my drill bit for the pocket hole jig, so that ended that. I then decided to move on to the door. I did a test fixture to check the hinges that I had purchased for this door. They, of course, did not work as planned. I purchased the same ones that I used on the sacristy cabinet. That door was a flush mounted door and this one was to be a half overlay door. So I finally decided to give up for the evening. I placed an order for the new drill bit and hinges at Lee Valley then sat down to do this post. I had hoped to finish the cabinet this weekend, but it looks like I will have to wait for my package to arrive first.
