Ive been directed by the DDO (Director of Domestic Operations - aka Mrs MMD) to prepare for MMD Juniors arrival by building fitted cupbards in the bedroom.
So I drew up a plan which has consisted of a front frame (made of 34mm sq PAR battens and T+G boards.... made it up ensuring battens cut sqarely, correct length - with a little block plane fettling on one or two, half lap joints cut with router (first time Ive really used my inherited Mof 96 Elu banshee!), all fitted with no gaps, then the whole thing fitted into the opening where it was to go.... :shock: :shock: :shock:
Wowee - I felt like a real woodworker!.
got to finalise shelving internally then make the doors - will try to post a piccie if I learn how to use the camera.
Regards, MMD.

Congratulations on your excellent planning.

But I have to ask myself why does it never work like that for me? :roll:

Cheers
Neil

When I project like that goes so well for me early on it usually means I am heading for a fall later on.

Hope the rest of job goes as smoothly

Mike,

Excellent. I love it when a plan comes together*. Wish I could remember when that last happened to me though... :cry: :lol: So definitely take pics - then you can remind yourself! :wink:
