I built this small frame-and-panel door to cover the access to the
plumbing of my bathroom:
I have a couple of questions about the frame:
1. What is the best way of attaching it the wall? I used brad nails
(the ones with tiny hats that with small indentations for punching in).
Would using a nail gun have been appropriate and easier?
2. Should I have connected the three pieces of the frame together
before attaching the frame to the wall? I didn't. I felt that the sheer
from nailing the individual pieces to the wall would have broken the
connections b/w the pieces. As a result, the lines of contact b/w the
pieces came out quite sloppy.
If I should have put the frame together before attaching it to the wall
what is the proper way of doing it? Several ideas come to my mind:
little joiners on the back, brackets, nails.
Very many thanks in advance!
