Sellers Home Drinks Cabinet: Episode 4

Drinks Cabinet EP4 KF

This is an episode in a paid series. Want to watch it? You just need to sign up as a paid member and you can enjoy this video and many other videos we think you will love.

In this episode, we take you from the rough-sawn oak boards to two fully mortised and tenoned door frames, ready for making and fitting the door panels. The procedure for door making is rigid and fixed. We must prepare the materials carefully to ensure the stiles and rails are untwisted, parallel, and square throughout, as any slight discrepancy will result in a twisted door. Using hand planes trues up the wood and also reduces the amount of sanding we need to do when the doors are finally finished. We will laminate the walnut to the oak and then show the layout for the mortise and tenon joinery. At the end of the video, we will have two doors fully jointed.

    I noticed that Paul has put wax on the sole of the plough plane.
    Isn’t the rag on an oil can enough?
    Was there a specific reason to use wax this time?

    And why use haunch tenons and not regular tenons?
    What is the difference? What advantages are there in using haunch tenons?

    While the camera work has definitely improved in the Seller Homes series over older project, I miss Paull’s running monolgues during this kind of work of what the process going on in his head is.

      I completely agree. Part of the charm of the videos is Paul’s commentary.

    Would love to see Paul finally build the door for Sellers Home 😍
