The Panels - Nbrs 1-9
I cut most of the wood
for the panels/walls yesterday. For rough limber, it is fairly accurate to
Panels #10-11 will need
to address the door frame and panel #12 is the door. I have to think of these
for a bit.
Tonight I had some trouble
with keeping stuff square, so I placed the plywood panel down first to use
two edges as a guide. Plus, any glue now dripped on the ply and will end up
inside the panel anyway.
Note the edges all glued
ready for the masonite panel.
The frame is square and
the masonite insert has been screwed down. We flip it over and get ready to
screw down the inside of the panel.
At first I was goin gto glue the beadboard to the outside/inside covers.
But, the bond is far stronger than the board and I found that step unnecessary.
If thin ply has a "Belly"
face that skin towards the inside.
An old trick is to leave
1/16 - 1/8" around the edges to make up for any slop. (Which you will
experience.) All we do is locate the panel evenly on all four sides.
The ply is ready for marking
the screw locations.
Marks-Alot works great
I made a small measure
for the screw locations.
All battened down. Yes,
I know the to pand bottom screws look a bit out of place. As, they are!
Not bad for November 12th
Difference between start
and finish of a panel.
The nine stacked and ready
for drying and then some prep and the oil based primer.
