The weekend comes round again and ‘dad jobs’ raise their ugly head. This weekend, finishing a small bathroom cabinet I’ve thrown together in a bit of a rush, before relatives arrive next week. And to be honest, I’ve thrown it together so quickly, my idea for little sliding doors just isn’t working out. I reckoned I could get a couple of bits of Perspex cut and mount it in runners, but I’ve fixed the runner in place with a gap that’s too narrow for the door.
I suddenly remembered my little Stanley 98 & 99 side-rebate planes, which ended up saving the day. The 98 opened up the gap a treat and now the door slides smoothly. Normality is restored in the house, I can go back to my beer.
