Glad you liked it. This weekend we'll be doing the doors and maybe the
side panels using a Shaker raised panel bit from Sommerfeld or just a
cove bit if she decides to go with applied panels.
Will skip the rail and stile routing and just ease the edges of the
a little or maybe a little chamfer and some chisel work in the corners.
If she goes with solid wood raised panels we'll get into edge joining
and panel glue up, maybe using biscuits or DOMONOs for alignment
- being careful of course to not put any where the panel bit will
be cutting (learned THAT lesson on the first panel do I did)
If we do the boards glue up first, then the door rails and stiles
we may be able to do the raised panel stuff Sunday. Wait 'til
she gets to the sanding. I don't mind hand sanding - but it drives
some folks nuts.
Interesting this mentoring thing. I'm relearning stuff I've not done
for a while and the mentoree is enjoying making her own piece of
furniture - start to finish.
She keeps saying "I'm never going to remember all this stuff!"
"Don't worry about that. Some of it will stick and the rest won't
take much to bring back. And it'll be on my website for you, and
anyone else who wants to use it, anyway. Enjoy and don't worry
about a thing."
