Thread: I can do some pretty amazing things....

Hybrid View

  1. #1

    Red face I can do some pretty amazing things....

    ....like glue up a heavy solid interior door (30 X 80). Anybody can do that, right?
    Sand all the parts and identify all the parts to ensure the glueup goes smoothly. Even give a coat of finish to the loose panel prior to the glueup.
    Glueup went well -even a bit faster than I thought it would take.


    BUT, how many of you can come back to check the glueup and suddenly notice the loose panel leaning against the wall?
    Yep, I forgot to insert the loose panel????
    heavy sigh....

    I don't think I have ever made anything that I did do something like that. Every time I do it I think well this time I learned and I won't do that again, but the problem is I don't make the same things over and over so I screw up on the next thing.

    But I still keep building things.....

    I made a bottomless drawer once. It didn't function very well.

    Sure happens to me. After making careful measurements and fiddling with the setup to get my drawer joints cut and fit properly, I dry fit my drawer together and thought I'd try fitting it in the carcass. Seems I forgot to leave the 1/2" on each side to accommodate the slides... At least I hadn't glued it.

    Seems to be more than a coincidence to me...

    That's why I never take pictures of my mistakes.

    I've always believed that if there is a higher power, s/he has a sense of humor. Happy April Fool's?

    We all do stuff like this - I appreciate when someone has the cajones to share because it sure makes me feel better about my goofs.
