I picked up a couple of pine boards and got to work cutting out the trim pieces. I wanted solid wood on the trim so that I have something sufficiently strong to cut mortises in for the door hinges. I need practicing mortising hinges, so this project is going to test my skills on that. I cut some mortises for hinges when I built my outfeed table, but that was a long time ago and I need to make a new jig to cut the mortises.
My saw still works fine even though it's been sitting for almost a year. I have to clean up the top again since it's a little rusty. I really need to find a covering solution so that I can slow down the rust. I could just make more projects and that means I'd have to keep the saw clean and tuned regularly. I do have a bookshelf and some storage for my room to make, so that's coming up for me after I finish this tool cabinet.
|Got the trim on. I still remember how to do this.|
|Better the push stick than my thumb.|
Now that it's summer, I hope that I can make at least one more project. I can't really justify having good woodworking tools if I'm never doing any woodworking.
