The doors I'm building at the moment are made of beautiful, vertical grain Doug Fir. It's great stuff and has very tight rings if a bit chippy. I've also had the chance to design a house (it's in the permitting process now) and get back to fly fishing some.
While this isn't a terribly informative update I thought I'd post anyway just to keep the blog going and to share some pictures.
|The mortise and tenon joint from the doors I'm building.|
|Sometimes you just need a big saw. This is my 18" Rockler radial arm crosscutting a 30" panel.|
|My Wadkin shaper sporting an Amana insert cutter to give a nice clean 1/2" groove for the panels.|
|My Millbury tenoner in action. It beats setting up a table saw tenoning jig.|
|Stile, rail and panel assembly system showing the full 2 1/2" tenon.|
|A 36" door easily fits through my 43" Powermatic wide belt sander!|
|A nice pile of doors ready to have the edges sanded and then hung in jambs.|
|I need to do more of this. Priorities!|
