the all-seeingeyeMcAllaster House-Second Floor Renovation

March 19, 2007

Spent the weekend roughing out the components for the drawers and doors. By next weekend the doors will be ready to hang. The drawers maybe a week after that.

Haunched tenons cut with a table saw and cleaned up with a rabbet plane.

Test fitting raised panels.

Doors assembled.

Fitting bullet catches and flush pull to attic door.

The doors in place.

The closet and attic doors are built and hung. Like the originals, they are made of poplar with pine for the panels. On to the drawers! (followed by the deathly dull painting)

The drawer sides and backs are dovetailed and ready to assemble. When those are installed, all of the woodwork for the room will be finished.

The story continues . . .
