Look, installed doors! Gotta give em a quick pass through the dum sander, then sand the frames. Install the slab drawer fronts, build the shaker drawer fronts now that the doors are on. Yay for relat

Wait for it.......                 Wait for it.......                   Almost there........  

Phil Collins glue up technique.    

One of those rails is not like the other. Once it's all sanded and has finish on it, we're gonna call it good to go. It'll look ok. If you look at the overall picture of the vanity, all the rails look a bit different colored. 

Door 1 is now in clamps while glue dries. Like the Beatles said... "Let it be"

Sooo close! There was a last minute change yesterday. Instead of shaker drawer faces, he decided he wanted slab drawer faces for the bottom two drawers.

1 more drawer face to make, followed by handle install, final sanding, and then take it all apart and spray the doors and drawers.

Looking good, Tom! Did you pre-finish the panels, or do they just look darker as a trick of the lighting?

 

Thanks Ross, I prefinished the panels with satin poly to avoid any unfinished area showing if the panel contracts a little due to seasonal movement. The panels are resting on Spaceballs to keep them from rattling, and to allow movement.

WTF is a spaceball?  One of my panels rattles...

They are rubber balls about 1/4" diameter that sir in your rails and stiles, allows for expansion and contraction, while keeping the panel from rattling.

Really close to being done has got to feel good ! 

It's a great feeling. Gone either Sunday or Monday, depending on If I finish the finish tomorrow. It's an aggressive finishing schedule, using ultra day dying water based poly. Spraying everything
