Nice touch with the video.  Should do more of them.  I always use aluminium primer on Mahogany.  Only primer that really sticks to Mahogany.  Bloody expensive though !
If its made of wood, i can make it smaller.
Shirt size medium
p.s- ive started reading these too

I Really like those wardrobe doors.  How about some details on the construction. 

How are the Muntins installed to the Door? 

Did you paint the doors and then Install the Glass?

Doors are made of tulip and MDF panel.

4 Doors are like you see in the pictures other 4 have mirrors and 2 were smaller plain doors.
The mirrors are one solid panel with the beads stuck on the face. 

Taped the entire mirror up first then using a Stanley knife cut out exactly where the cross beads where going.  I sprayed these doors with a oil base undercoat paint.   

The doors are dominod together. Other tools used for the doors were Festool OF2200 in the CMS, rotex and gilatine trimmer.  They were all made in site.

JMB, Great job. 
I have, at times, struggled with finishing where something like you muntons cross glass or wood. Your solution of taping everything and then cutting where they cross is sooooo simple, i wonder why a smart  ::) guy like me never thought of it.  Oh well, I guess i still have a little of the heavier hammer and less mud in my mind.  I'll get there one of these days as long as guys like you keep boring us with your endless pictorials.  [dead horse]

But, no kidding, your work is great and I do appreciate the effort you put in to show & tell how you did it.

Is the door made from separate pieces or one piece? I never saw that system before. Looks really good.

Did u use 6mm for the flat panel then 12mm for the rails and stiles? Route the profile on the rails and stiles and mitre the corner of the profile and glue it all up in that jig then?

I'm guessing here to be honest

Very cool. I think (curve) it looks great.
How did you deal with the molding to have it form to the curve?

Good system!!

Love it!  Saves alot of time!  Once u drilled the holes and assembled it which takes some time!!!  But once done its done for ever!  

Then from then on you just simply make two curves out of plywood or MDF job done for just a simple curve.

 If your doing a S shape like I have done then you need to make four curved temples two male two female.

What I use to do was make up a box frame work which takes longer isn't as good and bigger and waists money on 2x2 and lots of screws.   Curvomatic is quicker saves on material but also storage. Because you can keep two 18mm pieces of ply for later but a large curved box takes up more room.

I used materials which were already on the job as left overs.

Had a full 9mm sheet of green MDF 18mm MDF and some hard board.

That's why the door is abit of a miss match in colour but hey who cares being painted.

So what I did

Made few rip cuts at 150mm wide with 9mm MDF

then

with my thicknesser I thinned the 9mm down to about 2mm

then

I glued 8 layers together and curved them in the curvo matic
while the two 150mm wide strips

then

Made the beading which I didn't bend I actually cut the curve pieces with jig saw and Routerd the mould onto them.

then

I would of liked to thinned down the 9mm MDF again for the solid back but wouldn't fit in my thicknesser so I decided to use the hard board as its thinner in the first place glueing up 3 layers. Not recommend just 3 layers as u do get slight spring back very slight I got zero spring back with the MDF 8 layers.

then

the 150mm pieces I ripped down to 65mm for the rails so I got 4 from the 2 I glued up.

then

when the hardboard was solid I marked out where I wanted the styles and rails and glued them onto the hard board placing them back into the jig.

then

Cus I just used the 18mm for the styles they didnt have curve I shaped them with the rotex one with slight hallow other side slight round. Wasnt going to spend time just glueing layers for the styles for such a small amount if curve wasnt worth it.

then

I fixed the beading on. It was but awkward getting the angles for the mitres.
Done???

Great work JMB. I really admire what you do "on site".  you have a lot of imagination.

i wonder about using plastic outside (if you are actually serious)  When i was in construction, a lot of goys used gun racks in the back window of their trucks to carry 4' levels.  I never had any problem doing that as my levels were all aluminum I-beam type with solid wood fillers both sides.  Some of my friends went to the cheaper plastic levels and very soon, from hanging on those racks in the summer heat (with or without direct sun on them), the levels were warped.  Some of them (better ones maybe) were imperceptible but a lot of problems in use.  Others were bent like an archer's bow. 

I am sure improvements have been made since I left the trade, but I am just as sure i would not trust plastic for something like an MFT top to be used out side.

I still have several of my old I-beam levels.  I cannot find them any more.  They really took a lot of beating.  the guys who used plastic were constantly replacing.  (Note:  I have been away from construction for over 30 years, so definitely not QUITE up on some of newer developments.)

MDF is pretty abrasive, isn't that going to kill your blades?
