Starting up where I left off yesterday, I decided to glue on some pieces of pine to help keep the door from cracking again:


I added 4 magnets that will end up holding the door in place.

I needed to add magnets to the door wedges so they’d line up with the magnets in the cabinet…

…and I needed to make sure I got the polarity of the magnets right when I glued them in…

…so even before I glued them in, I taped them, so I wouldn’t confuse which side of the magnet goes down into the hole.

I glued them all and clamped them down…

…and would you believe it? I got them all correct!

And last but not least, I added the lever clamp:

Tomorrow

Tomorrow, I’ll either work on the top, or the drawers. Maybe both, we’ll see.

Later.
