Yesterday I started work on another set of wardrobes. Again they are in oak veneered MDF. This one is a little different as one of the 'robes' houses the immersion heater and associated pipework, for this reason one of them will have to be built on site as a framework rather than the usual 'boxes'.
With a short break to fit the small gate this morning I managed to get the large panels cut out along with the tops and bottoms. I then cut the biscuit slots in them all and lipped the edges with oak.
I also made up the plinth for these two and another section of plinth which will be removable in case the immersion tank needs replacing. (these are in glue up so no pics at the moment) I shall make the third robe as a face frame to match in with the others and use battens for the shelving. Inside I shall make a slatted section to hide the tank and have two slatted shelves above it. There are a lot of pipes in there so I figured this would be the best way of building it.

Looks like another great build Mailee. Pipe work can be the proverbial pain

Yes, your right there Derek and there are plenty of them on this one.

With the carcasses ready for the finish I made a start on the cornice today and got them assembled.
I then started machining up the timber for the doors.dscn3245.jpg

Well I finally got the doors finished today ready for a finish on them. Seems to have taken a long time but I have been working on other jobs too.

12 doors in all, six lower and six upper cupboard doors. I am on another job tomorrow so it will have to take a back seat again.

I got back to the customers home today to fit the cornice after the decorator had been. (I also had some cupboard doors to fit that I had made so it was a good days work) Anyway I took a couple of shots of the wardrobes now they are finished.
Another happy customer I am glad to say.
