Decided to finally get some Domino action going...

Used my Dewalt CSM saw to cut the pieces.





Assembly on MFT/3s.....





Used the 500 adapter for the 700 to use the 500 bits. Worked perfectly... Just had to shim the wood pieces to get the correct height as the the wood was smaller than the minimum height of the 700.

Glued in the DOMINOS before final assembly.



Bought some pressure treated ply which I will cut to size to fit into the opening(s) after I routed a recess on the back side of the door frames.

Nice work! 

That dust collection tube on the Dewalt CMS is HUGE! 

Question...did you coat your MFT table with something?  How's it hold up ? What did you use?  thanks!

I like the little anvil. Did you use it on this job?

GOT8SPD, Yes I coated the MFT/3(s) with shellac. Not very resistant to scratches but I did this more for moisture/glue control. Easy to brush/patch and dries quickly.

Wayne, I use the anvil mostly for metal shaping purposes, like when I make a coin ring...

Almost embarrassed but its been a year since I started this project.

A driveway repair, resetting stones that got loose thru the last winter and a lot of business travel does this to you.....

Winter is approaching and no garden work opens up time for the workshop....

Today i finished sanding both sides with to RO150. A monster to use. Had to turn down to slow speed and less than half vac power to manage....





Used the OF1400 and a rabbet bit to route a groove on the back side to fill with panels (next stage). Gotta wortk on my technique....

I know it’s been 3 years since I started this project. But sometimes you get sidetracked with life......and sailing....

Continued today finishing routing the rabbets on the second door and cut the triangle infil pieces to size...

Working on second set. Hopefully does not take 3 years to finish......

Overall I still have to take off another 1/2 inch each in width from the doors to make ‘em fit properly in the opening and give enough clearance for hinges.....

Cut the width of the new set of doors to the correct size, cut the diagonal cross braces, dominoed everything (still feels like cheating using the Domino....) and glued everything together....

Still need to install hinges....
