Amazing how slow this work can go when it's just you doing it. In part I blame the weight of the doors (these suckers are heavy), in part I blame tools I can't find (it's amazing how much stuff made it up to the shed over the last year), and in part I just blame being tired.


But progress has been made. The door frame is up and in and the first door is properly attached on its hinges. It doesn't quite close yet since I still have some adjusting to do on the set screws; with a big arched door like this you end up in almost a ballet of "loosen here, tighten there" to bring things into line. But I'll get there. The frame itself was thankfully very square and very level.

The other "active" door is lying on a couple of tables undergoing a bit of minor repair work. One of the slabs of mahogany had separated slightly and I thought it would be good to work on gluing it back. Naturally I lacked both the glue and a large enough clamp to make that happen so I had to run into town this morning, but it was a good trip overall (and now I'll have a big-ass clamp for other projects).

This week will be slow progress because of work but I'll tinker as best I can. If I can get the door set into place properly so it closes I'll consider the week a win.

Of course once they're in I've got insulation work... and drywall work... and sanding work... and staining work... and mortar work... and stucco work... It never stops!
