As with any project, it’s finalising the small details that make the biggest impact on our art. You will see many tricks-of-the-trade tips being applied minute by minute, ranging from adapting and adopting tools for non-standard applications to creating moulded edges designed to strengthen the outcome of shelving, etc. We shape and fit the nosings to carry the appearance of strength and to finish off elements in a solid manner, yet continue for the main part to rely on hand tool woodworking throughout. The rigidity of the wardrobe comes together when we cut and fit a full sheet of Baltic birch plywood into the rebates we created. At the end of this episode, we have all of the plywood shelving and back fitted, and installed and moulded the outer facings to shape. We also shape and fit the feet to the wardrobe facing too.
