The pic shows the doors shot into the cabinet opening with some slivers of 0.6mm veneer to act as a spacer and create a 'shadow gap' all round.
All good stuff and pretty common practise.
The doors look quite good as well...sort of a 'double square' effect, which though not intentional, was governed by the size of the panels I had available.
But if you're really observant, and look very carefully you'll note that there isn't a big, sticky piece of paper on each door saying, in letters writ large...OUTSIDE, LHS and OUTSIDE, RHS.
Which is why, gentle peruser, in a spasm of inconceivable 'sang froid' I managed to fit them inside out and back to front. By a fortunate chance of extreme good fortune (and the good luck fairies were definitely perched both shoulders) I noticed half-way through that something didn't look quite right as the doors are almost, but not quite identical, inside and out.
It wasn't too late to save them, but as a man on a horse said in 1815 after a particularly epoch changing event..."it has been a damned nice thing - the nearest run thing you ever saw in your whole life"
