Liquor cabinet build log-Update10 - Page 2

Update 2:

Big update:
Sorry I didn't update last night. Anyways, after sanding the 4 sheets front and back, I put the first coat of sealer on. The only reason why I had to move inside was because these pesky birds in the tree above me kept dropping berries on the sheets of wood and it was pissing me off lol.

After all the sealer coat was applied and dried to both sides, I went into laying out the pieces to be cut and then cut them all out. I had to make the cabinet a little bit smaller width wise then I had originally intended, but there should still be plenty of room.

After the pieces were all cut out, I went into fine sanding all of them with 220 grit and getting them ready for the top coat. This is after I got them sanded and purty.

After that, I placed all the pieces out where I could apply the top coat for drying overnight. And this is how it looks as of about 45 minutes ago.

So what I have planed for today is I am going to work on a lot of the smaller things like the wine bottle holders for the sides and the glass holders for the top hood shelf. I will also flip over those panels and apply the top coat to the other side of them a little bit later. Well, that's about it for now. biggrin.gif

Thanks a lot! Sucks though today is a wet and rainy day so its making these things take longer to finish drying. Atm they are dry but not totally dry all the way through if you get my meaning.I wont be able to flip them over to do the other sides until late tonight. Because of this I haven't been able to do anything else because its raining so I cant move them outside so that I can work. Atm I cant work in the shop because of them being in the way. =( I guess today will be a bust in terms of getting stuff done. But oh well I have other stuff to do and as long as tomorrow is a good day then I will be able to get a lot done then.

Update 3:

Another update for you guys, and it is raining yet again this morning. The good thing is yesterday around noon it became a really nice day outside so hopefully this will clear up soon again. Anyways, I got more done yesterday than I expected. I let all the finished pieces you saw before dry all day to make sure they were hard enough to flip over and lay down so that I could coat the other side. I also went to lowes and picked up a couple more last minute items. Here you can see some of the trim that will be used in the build. I sanded them up and put a coat of sealer on them.



Also while I was at it, I decided to go ahead and seal the walking stick I had been working on. It looks mighty fine.





After those dried, I spent a few hours moving stuff around in the shop and clearing off my table in the back so that I could set up some of the pieces back there for the final coat so that I could have more working area. Then I started laying out and cutting the pieces for the shelf as well as the wine bottle holders which was a lot of work. Here they are after many hours of work cutting them out and sanding them down to the perfect size.







And there you have it. After I finished that last night I flipped everything over and put a finish coat on the other side of all the pieces. So they will be drying throughout the day today. See ya next time...

I thought about it but I don't think I will. I just sanded down the edges to break them off from being really sharp. Plus the router could burn the wood since the rounding bit I have right now is almost done, so that would just cause more work and heartache. It's a real pain getting the burn marks out of wood. There are already a few burn areas, luckily I was able to get most of them out or cover them by the way I mount them.

Thanks a lot! Yea today I haven't even started working on it yet because the finish coat needs 24 hours to dry and I didn't put that on until around midnight last night. I may do a few little things in a bit depending on what there is to do since literally every piece got a coat last night. But here is what iv been up to today..

Update4:

Ok so far today I have gotten a good bit of work done. I started putting the cabinet together this morning. Here is the plinth base that will be underneath the cabinet.





One that was finished I began working on the main cabinet frame and got that put together.







After I finished that part I got the wine bottle holders and sanded them down to get them ready for their final coat and then applied that. So around this time tomorrow I will be able to flip them and coat the other side then they will be done. Here is a pic comparing the different looks of the wood, the far left piece is just sanded with nothing else done to it, the middle is sanded after 1 coat was applied and the right is after 2 coats.



Well that's all for now, im gonna get back out there and start working on some more of the little things. Stay tuned...
