So, yesterday I tried to make two doors for the top using glass. Went and bought the glass. Had to resaw the gap were the glass slips in. No biggie. Looked real nice till both glasses popped. :o The glue I used expands. I didn't think about that and sure as heck, both glass panels popped. >:( The glass had way more them enough room to move, but not with that glue. >:(

Live and learn, I guess. But there is a silver lining to this. My daughter came to pick up her son yesterday evening. Told her what had happen. Well, one of her hobbies is making stain glass  panels. ;D She took what I had and started making a new stain glass panel. ;D 8)

So, another change. :D

And yesterday the wife and I went looking at different tiles for the backsplash. Everything that we liked was way to much that I didn't want to spend. :o Here comes another change. :D Drinking my coffee this morning and thinking about that, had something that popped in my mind. I have a bunch of 4"x6" and 6"x6" oak beams that are cut offs. Why not cross saw them across the end grain to make subway tiles. Glue them up, then grout them and then varnish them for the finish? Leave them in the rough and make them not the same thickness. ;D I see that I will have to make a jig to hold the beams up right to saw them on my sawmill. 8) Would do that today, but rain is on the way. :(

The tile idea should be a good one.  You just might make points with the wife yet.   :D

I've seen tiles done that way for flooring and it looked great. I see no reason why it wouldn't look good as a backsplash.

Did the mistake of showing the wife a picture of a backsplash made out of pallet wood. So, she wants me to get some for enough to see what it would look like. :o Really no problem getting them for free around here.

I'm getting to the point that I will just do whatever. :D

Been putting door frames together. DanG shame I only have two clamps that extend over 30". :( Should go out and buy a couple more, but there will be a good chance I will never use them again.

Anyway, My daughter wanted me to install a stain glass to make sure it is strong enough. All is good. ;D Don't mind the blue tape. I put that there so I can varnish it. ;D My daughter wanted to add more color to the glass, but I said all is good. I wife loves it. Guess that is what counts. :D

 

 

Should finish the top doors tomorrow and varnish them first before installing the glass.

I thought the blue tape looked good!  Thought it was a different glass she was trying out.

How are you attaching the glass in the back?  Glazing points or turney things like for screens.  Picture please!

I used my router and cut a grove about 1/2" wide and 1/2" deep. From there, I put a bead of  clear silicone, then put the glass in. From there I had some oak strips that are 1/2" wide that filled the gap and thickness of the frame. More silicone, then the strips. Used a staple gun and stapled them in place. Once the silicone is dry, Remove the staples.

Back side. You can see a little of gap. I will fill that. ;D

Looks really good...

Question: Is the door opening laid out so the long side of the door is vertical (in the basic orientation shown in the photos...) or does the long side go horizontal?

The reason I ask is if it is to be installed with the long side vertical it looks a little odd because the stiles are not the full length of the door...

Nothing wrong with that, just most people make the stiles the full length of the door height, rather than making the rails the full width...

Still looks good.

I see what you are saying. ;D But yes, the long side will be vertical.

Darrel, the rust tin was just to dark and the wife didn't care for it. So, whatever the boss says, goes. :D

Finished getting all the upper door frames together. Just need to varnish them. Daughter has a bunch of the glass done.

Got all the drawer boxes built. With the rain we having, it's stopping me from varnishing and resawing rough boards to plane out for the lower cabinet doors and drawer fronts. :( Didn't take any pictures.

Really haven't been doing to much. :( Kind of been under the weather. Over 13 years ago, I had neck surgery to fuse together C5 and C6. Well the last couple months, this came back with problems. >:( The pain got to the point, I couldn't sleep. So, off to the doctor that did the work. Not good. :( Things above and below are in very bad shape. Looks like more surgery down the line. >:(

Anyway, got all the upper doors and a piece of backsplash varnish.

 

 

 I did put together the matching door to the first today. Got a pair now. ;D

 

  

My daughter has a couple more of the glasses done, just need to go pick them up.

Yesterday, I sprayed out one of the cabinets. Sprayed a clear satin finish. Really made the wood grain pop. ;D

 

 

Used a cheap HF spray gun that cost $10 that did a great job. ;D After spraying, any runs, I came back with a foam brush. That took care of it. ;D

I am just now catching up with what you did while I was on the road sawing Paul.  I see that your Wife and Daughter are making good decisions and you are doing well by following them.  Looking Good.   :)

Thanks Lynn. Spent the day on a tractor moving dirt. Paying the price for that this morning. Got to do a CT this morning on my neck to see if there is anything they can do to fix it. I hope so or my sawing days could be over.
