TJ Camp Kitchen

The facing for the kitchen door was now built and I was able to cut the door which will be the work counter for the camp kitchen.  It will have the edges routed and attached to the cabinet facing with a piano hinge for extra strength.  (see photo above and below)

Applying a coat of polyurethane to all inside shelves was next on the project list.  It will help seal the wood and keep any stains from occurring.  I cut pieces of indoor/outdoor carpet for the interior bottom of the unit to keep objects from sliding around.  These will be removed before painting.  Cutting a mortise on the door for the piano hinge will insure the door closes flat on the face of the kitchen.

Next step is to route all corner surfaces with a 1" flush trim bit followed by a 1/2" round over bit.  Doing this will keep the edges from getting chipped off and give a modular look to the kitchen.

All routing has been completed and now it is time to fill in all nail gun marks and any mistakes I have made with a filler.  Finish sanding will follow.
