Kitchen Cabinet Door prototype redux

2008-08-26 00:17:35.845841+00 by Dan Lyke 4 comments

Some practice doors mounted to a quick & dirty plywood box, 'cause we're still visualizing parts of the new kitchen design. More here.

I think it looks nice, and would look really nice in a Hobbit house.

I'm gonna have to look into a curved living roof...

They are looking good. The miters seem to be doing well too. You seem almost as happy with the Festool driver as cabinets ;^)

Yeah, with these I am. I need to write down the procedure for making the doors, I'm really close on them, but it's easy to get things out of sequence (for instance, when the recess for the panel gets cut versus when the inside rounded profile on the frame gets cut. So if you squint just right at the pixellation on the door on the left you might be able to guess that my ripping and cutting procedure isn't quite wired, and there's a small (1mm or so) mismatch in frame thickness on the inside of the miter. I think I've got it licked, but we'll see when I start turning these things out in production.

I also need to be making matched doors when I've got specific set-ups for them, because it's really hard to get dead-on on sizes unless I'm doing all the cuts at the same time. I don't think you'd notice it, 'cause I split the difference in the mounting, but one door is just a fraction taller than the other 'cause I built them with different set-ups. But I think it'll all come together now.
