So we’re stuck with a miss-cut door.Three out of four’s not bad – really? So after a night of thinking about the problem I came up with a fairly simple fix.
I’ll need to cut this much off the top of the door – close to 1/2″. I’ll take the hinge plates mounted to the cabinet and move them up the same amount that I cut off the door.
Then we’ll take the cut piece from the top and glue and nail to the bottom. Then use a solvent based wood filler for the first coat.
While that’s setting up, we’ll add some drywall in the vanity space between the cabinets.
Then back to sand the the door joint.
Some surface filler is applied and then the first primer coat goes on. Now I’m glad my wife wanted painted doors. It will get several more applications until the seam disappears.
And while that’s getting finished we’ll add the electrical boxes for the sconces and cut the hole for the vanity cabinet. I’m getting to a stand still here – better go downstairs and start on another project.
And this looks like a good candidate – the cabinets next to the fireplace.
Time to clear out another room and get to work… stick around we’ll finish something sooner or later.
