So I don't procrastinate...but I do dither, a little. Are they the same thing?...perhaps only the Tooth Fairy has the answer to that one.
However, I digress, or dither...see?...told you!...and as can be seen from the accompanying pic, I've started a new cabinet today, this time one with double doors and an ash stand. The carcase work is still in English Walnut with the two panels part of the same 1970's job that the back panel of the Mask Cabinet was made from and all parts of the door frames are book matched...or as near as damn it.
The particular ditheration on this occasion was this.
Do I make the doors first and then the cabinet, or the cabinet first and make the doors to fit?
To be fair, I've been pondering on this for weeks but this morning the penny finally, finally dropped (and yes, it's taken a long time). It's the finite size of the existing panels that will ultimately determine the overall length and height of the finished cabinet.
Now that load is off my pea sized brain, I can get back to the job.
...until the next ditheration rears it's ugly head.
