Malcomb, Kens, MJ Tripper,
First, Trip, do the ceiling panels too while you're at it. Just about everyone here who has built these things recommends finishing those before installation....and as much as possible on cabinets etc becore installing etc. I simply follow where the wise, great and good have gone before <g> Seriously, Tom Swenson has some great pics as do Madjack, Kerry, and Mike..Gage has some good pics and advice.
I'm learning as I go...for the most part <g>
Malcomb and Kens--
I doubt if my 1/8" will be EXACT. I don't think anything on my whole build is EXACT. I blame it on my tape--keeps expanding and contracting and the wood keeps swelling and shrinking--some while other swells <g>
I just want the space to be 1/8" or less.
MJ, I gotcha on that business about the 1/8". I am not putting trim on the door or wall at the moment. I may do that later--if I do, I'll have to sand the doors some more. Right now, I just want to get a good fit and seal.
I am trying the interior seal ala your builds and Steve Fredericks. So, I am going slooowwww.
A disposition to preserve, and an ability to improve, taken together, would be my standard of a statesman...
But what is liberty without wisdom, and without virtue? It is the greatest of all possible evils; for it is folly, vice, and madness, without tuition or restraint.
