I've been making a cabinet for our screen porch. It has been kinda fun
because I bought nothing (except hinges) to make it, been using stuff I had
left over from other projects.
The last thing I had to do was make the doors. I cut all the rails and
stiles and grooved same for the panel a day or so ago, last thing was to cut
3/8" stub tenons on the rail ends to fit into the stile grooves. I did that
yesterday afternoon. I also cut tenons into the ends of the stiles.
ARRRGGGG! Now the damn stiles are 3/4" too short <sob>. That's what I get
for working when I am tired.
I just finished stretching the stiles. I cut a bunch of 1 1/2" square
pieces (stiles and rails are 1 1/2 wide), cut appropriate grooves and glued
them on. Other than being a pain to do, that would be fine if I'd planned
to paint the door frames but I didn't, plan to finish them bright. If the
grain mismatch looks too awful, guess I'll cut shallow "V" quircks at the
joints AND in the rails...sort of like corner blocks. A design feature :)
