I'll be the first to admit that I'm not doing a great job with the step my step via photos on this one. With the heat, I'm only working a few hours a week so I don't ever really get into the groove.
So far this week and this morning, I have mounted the top to the base cabinet,attached the final face frames and am actually ready to scribe the two side frames to the wall. I'm going to attempt that feat after the sun goes down and it hopefully drops out of the 90's
I was stupid, and sprayed the metal handles on my cabinets with an all purpose cleaner - I'd done this before and had no issue, but usually immediately wiped after spraying. This time, I let it sit for about 25 seconds. The surrounding wood began to turn white, so I threw water on it and attempted to wipe off the cleaner with paper towels - the result was making the stain much larger.
I'm having trouble discerning if this is residue/a coating I need to remove, or if I've stripped the finishing off. In either case, I'm not sure what to do to fix this issue. Any advice you have would be GREATLY appreciated.
I had a minute so I got the second frame glued (and roughly cleaned up). Here is where they are right now.
Next up is scraping and sanding, then routing a chamfer on the front and rabbet on the back for the glass. My older daughter got a hold of the first frame and decided to have some fun with it.
Just as a point of interest . . . this fixture is on the door so I have small magnets that catch the heads and hold them firm. I don't normally swing the door open at high speed but, I also don't want a square hitting the concrete ;-)
