No matter what kind of cabinet you're building, it's the doors that get most of the attention. Everyone can see the doors -- so you want them to be attractive. And everyone will interact with them, too -- so you want them to be sturdy and functional.
In this new DVD on Building Doors, master woodworker Andy Rae shows you how to build all kinds of doors -- each with its own unique style and functionality -- depending on how you plan to use a particular cabinet.
Because each type of door is built for its own specific application, it requires slightly different skills, techniques and procedures. And they're all demonstrated here -- with clear, close-up shots of every detail, step-by-step instructions and lots of inside tips from a real pro.
Here are some of the topics you'll learn about in this comprehensive DVD.
•First build the cabinet
•Sizing the doors to the case
•Creating door joints
•Making breadboard doors, frame-and-panel doors, cope-and-stick doors, and simple glass doors
•Smoothing a door
•Hanging a door
•Handles, pulls, latches, catches and stops Whether you're a trim carpenter or a weekend woodworker interested in building your skills, this valuable DVD will give you all the advice you need to create any kind of cabinet door.
