Yes, even if my sewing course startet, I’m still working on my shelf 🙂
I wish I could practice what I learned the last 2 saturdays with my sewing course, but my shelf wont do the pimp by itself LOL
Here is a picture of one of the doors. I will make 8 doors in 4 different styles.This is the first of them. I have to grind and paint these 2 doors, but the most wood work is done
As good as I can, I try to explain what I used and what I did.
But as a beginner with wood working I’m not sure if the way I did this is circuitous or not. Maybe there is an easier, faster way to do this work, but I dont know it.
Before I finished this door I tried laths with different widths and different thicknesses.
This is what I used at the end
From lath 1 saw the 4 parts and glue them as seen on the picture above.
saw the miter at the longer sides first. Put them on the frame from lath 1 and measure if you really have 14.17inch on the open sides. If not, change the length of them and then saw the miter. Check again if it fits now!
I made the mistake to saw all 4 sides first and then tried them on my frame. If it had been to long I could have cut them, but no, they were to short 😦
If the sizes of all 4 laths fits, glue them on your frame. As on the picture above.
I dont know what names these laths have or what they are for, but they were exactly what I needed.
I choosed the right one on both ends of my frame. The other one for filling the frame.
dont saw them all at once !!!! Yes, made this mistake too hehehehe
My lath 2 frame has narrow differences in width over the 28inch. We talk about 0.004inch / 0,1mm. It isnt much, but I wanted it perfect.
So I measured for every piece what lenghts its needed. I needed some in 11.81inch / 30cm and some in 11.7inch / 29,9cm
Make a mark on your frame and on your parts !!! This is when you also have differences. It will spare you time when you start to glue.
For the middle of this door I saw a 11.81inch / 30cm piece of lath 2
I had luck that all parts filled the complete frame. Otherwise I would have change the middle lath. I tried with so many different laths, that I’m sure I could have taken one of them if it hadnt fit.
I cant believe after so many trying with this damn door I did both of them on ONE weekend LOL
And I Love My Work !!!
