Coming along…….

…..though slowly. I resumed the construction of the frame for the door today (26 Mar) but it took quite some time. I don’t rush things these days, let’s face it I am no spring chicken! I spent two hours sawing timber before lunch and then another hour and a half after lunch doing the same thing but also assembling the sections.

You can see the short timber has been cut at each end to form a cross-halving joint. All the sections were cut this way to give the frame strength. In the second picture you can see the frame at that time fully assembled but as yet unfinished.

All the sections were screwed together. There will be more pieces added as I go along. In the top space I have to insert the glass panel I purchased for the door. More strengthening sections will also be added. Once I am satisfied with the frame I will then fit the plywood panelling either side to complete the construction. So it is coming along slowly but surely.
