Ironing board storage cabinet – day 12

Well, the finish is dried and it is time to install the hardware. I installed the hinges first and hooked them back together. Then I drilled two holes for the handle. I clamped a sacrificial piece of scrap to the front of the door to eliminate tear-out when the drill bit broke through. I also installed a magnetic catch behind the handle. The hinges I bought are slow-closing hinges and they do a nice job of holding the door closed so the magnet is just back-up. I inserted the ceramic tile on the top shelf, then I brought down my wife’s Iron and board to do a test fit. Oddly enough I did not think to do a test until I was completely done… I had measured it all at least, so I knew it would work. I will try to deliver it in the next day or two to free up space for the next project…
