    Tod would can my butt after the first day!

    I have about two weeks into these doors and I still have to do the final sanding & fitting…

    Details; Cabinet doors, 26”X36”, 4/4 QSWO, mortise & tenon with 3/8” square pegs, 8 per door (pegs are ironwood). Sliding dovetail muttons with walnut dowels. Mutton cross joints are half lapped with #8 screws at the intersections, (will use brass at final assembly). 18, ½” deep rabbits to accept the beveled glass windows. I still need to make and fit the ¼ rounds to hold the glass, 72 of them total.

    It’s beyond me how anyone could make a buck doing this full time…

    Looking good Bruce

    Yes it's tough trying to make a buck out here doing this stuff.

    Tougher yet doing that kind of work you are doing on those doors.

    If you are making to sell, I hope you are charging enough. Fine workmanship.

    Very very nice Bruce. I am thinking as you do them more and more you learn how to make them faster. You have done a nice job and my most time consumeing part is makeing jigs or fixtures to do the job. But if its righ it makes the rest of then pretty much faster.

    Larry, tight fits make the glue up that much more thrilling!
    That big hammer & block o'wood came in handy.

    Thanks guys. I knew they were going to be labor intensive when I started them.

    Very nice windows.
    Sure would like some details on how you made those square pegs, Bruce.

    Frank, I made the blanks on my mill. I did the diamond shape using a quick & dirty jig and my spindle sander.

    They look wonderful Bruce, certainly couldn't ask for anything better in my book.
