Next I painted the groves using Citadel black acrylic. Use a damp cloth to wipe off the excess.
When installing the center dividers, it’s important to counter sink both the top and bottom holes.
All parts taped into place.
Next I drilled the holes into the doors for my hinges to slide through. This part is critical to the correct placement of the doors. If they’re off even slightly, a number of problems can arise. To accomplish this, I made some jigs, again under the watchful eye of Joe, who created them. Mine are quite crude looking. But nothing crude about the way they functioned though, as the holes were drilled exactly where they needed to be.
Notice how the top door catches the edge of the center plate. This is what holds the door open and is very important. If you find it isn’t catching, simply enlarge the holes on the door catch so the plate can be slid forward or backward accordingly.
These jigs are to be used with Carl’s laser cut frames only. If the jigs are used with frames which were hand made there is no guarantee the holes will be where they should. All hand cut frames will have slightly different variances to one another, thus the jigs hole placement will not be a constant.
