in the progress of the doors.
As The World Turns for me—I seem to always end up bouncing around differing projects, never getting to focus on JUST ONE at a time!
–The interior is finished and reloaded, including a home for the vacuum and some cleaning supplies.
back to those doors!
I decided on a version of Plan B.
Plan A with the mirrors was going to cost $120—ouch!
1. I figured out the height of the change to the door and marked it with painter’s tape as a guide (picture above this one). I used my oscillating saw to cut the new division in the molding that framed the door.
2.–5. I used a speed square to guide the oscillating saw through 2 new clean and straight miter cuts.
6. & 7. I cut a scrap piece of matching mill work at the chop saw to close in the new panel/box, but I didn’t like how the two sections butted together—so….
I ran that new top piece through the table saw to “flatten” its top and to make room for a flat rail to slip in between the “top” and “bottom” boxes. Think DUTCH DOOR!
Next, I cut out the upper, center sections of the doors, sanded the openings smooth and routered a rabbet from the back side. Then I painted the doors with a high gloss and let them dry for a day.
I decided to have some design fun with the “new” doors!
I just need to find some old lace to close in the top section…
*Did you notice I changed the font?!? ; D
I’m sharing this project with a few of my favorite linky parties!
