524 Bathroom cabinet part 3

published 7 years ago by Matt Vanderlist

After what felt like forever I finally completed the pre-finishing process for the body of the bathroom cabinet. A brown dye with a few coats of poly and it's now ready for assembly. If you’re curious how this first attempt at a pre-finish went, checkout my earlier blog “Confessions of a first time pre-finisher”. In today’s episode we’re concentrating on getting the doors installed. At this point it's all about finessing the fit to get the desired reveal I like for inset doors. While I like to think I have enough experience to be able to hang the doors without a lot of effort, the truth is I rely a lot on the adjustability of the European-style hinges I'm using in this build. Installation of this style of hinge looks complicated at first, but in reality it's a lot easier than you may expect. But to make it even easier we’ll cover the construction of a story stick to make it quick and easy to layout all the hinges quickly and accurately.
