Cabinet Doors

After renovating our fence to a dog eared picket fence, we had quite a bit of wood left over from the old basket weave fence. We were looking to add some cabinets to shelving in one of our bedrooms. After acquiring the tie plates, wood screws, gorilla glue, and minwax stain to make the doors, I started by cutting the wood to length and sanding it to give it a smoother texture. I also got the idea to use some old glass I had laying around from a dresser to use for the cabinet doors. I was actually surprised that the glass was not difficult to cut when using the right oil and cutting tool I picked up at our local home depot. Staining the wood was probably the most time consuming part of this project. We applied the stain twice to give it a nice dark coat, be sure to use plenty of coverage for whatever surface your working on. The one thing i would recommend that I learned is to use tie plates for the wood, the mending plates do not always come out pretty or straight. You will save time using screws and tie plates. We plan to find other good uses for the left over wood from our basket weave fence.
