Today we’re installing the doors on the Walnut Buffet. The design requires inset doors, which can be very tricky to get placed correctly for an uniform reveal on all four edges. Thankfully I chose European style hinges for the hardware. The benefit of these style hinges vs a traditional pin version is the built in adjusters which make achieving an uniform revel as easy as turning a screw or two.
But before we get to the hinge installation we need to trim and adjust the solid wood wraps on the walnut plywood to fit in the door openings. The fastest way to do this I’ve found is using my block or smoothing plane. In fact we’ll take a closer look at doing just that in the second half of the show.
