Day 6 – Top vent slots, front door latch andÂ more painting.
I cut some slots in the roof of the cabinet for ventilation, not sure they are really needed.
I had planned on making the front area at the bottom a door with hinges and such, but I decided I didn’t want to mess with figuring out where to put them and all that.Â Instead I just have the bottom area as a solid piece that I put a cam lock in middle top and then cut out a slot in the 2×4 that sits behind it.Â This way I can totally remove the front if I want to.
I might change this later and put hinges and all on it, but for now I like how it works.
In addition to the cam lock I’m putting some of these cabinet magnetic catches along the bottom inside to make sure it doesn’t easily come out.
I love building, I love cutting and drilling and sanding and routing and glueing and all of that.Â But, I hate painting.Â It’s boring, it’s tedious and it seems to take forever.Â ehhhh, I hate painting.
Day 6 hours: 4 hours
Running total: 26 hours construction.
