I thought I should probably do a little update on my dining room project as things really took a leap in the right direction yesterday...DOORSSlowly but surly I am still working away at the dining room, I am not letting it take over my life so it is going slowly but I am OK with that , there is no rush.
I had to dry fit the solid tops I made last week just to see how they would look in place, they look just as I had hoped, victory.
I made this door 2 years ago and it is holding up very well, so I figured it was worth trying again, this time I used pocket holes and that kept things simple and it worked well so I'm sticking with that, simple and cost effective.
I swear it looks as though my Ryobi tools are product placement but I swear they are just always around...you are welcome Ryobi...feel free to send me any Ryobi products to repay me....wink wink.
What a difference a couple of weeks makes.
I decided to use this sureply which is a flooring underlayment if I am correct....the side rails of the door frame are actually pine flooring I ripped down to 2.5 " , the groove perfectly fit this material so it was fine by me...all of the built-in will be painted so it will be fine. So far I think these doors have cost me about $30...well that's not bad at all is it?
Of course I was 2 small doors short of flooring so I will be off to the lumber yard this morning to finish this door part of the project.
Next I have to do a lot of sanding then priming and I should decide on harware becasue my origional idea isn't going to work after all...I would love a contemporary brass knob but they seem hard to find around here.
I hope you are enjoying this fall...I think some snow is in the near future which makes me sad... oh well that's my issue...thanks for stopping by.
