First up, get that ugly flue out of sight.
Unwrapping the loft insulation to pack the boxing with was a little harder than anticipated:
My skilled assistant demonstrated how to prepare the soundproofing;
I packed the soundproofing in as hard as I could.
Sadly the first attempt just didn't have enough fixing points, so more batons needed to screw into
Whilst that was drying, I started to put the carcass together.
Then finally the doors.
At the most heartbreaking moment, I now had to disassemble the doors and half the cabinet. The shelfs are assembled already and won't fit in; the cabinet has to be built around them.
Building the carcass whilst I can still get inside was necessary - easy to clamp things in place and screw them into place, and check levels.
I still nearly cried when taking it all apart again though.
Batons now dried nicely, time to fight the bottom panel into place.
Then the rebuild. Damned glad I'd gone to the trouble of getting everything pre-drilled and screwed, it was damnably tight between the uprights and the shelving.
And fucking well done.
Job done then. Off to a long hot bath.
Astute readers will note the white wine in preparation on the bath side.
The gap on the corner between the front and side panel is awaiting some 18mm quarter dowel to fill it in; I cannot buy one for love or money at the minute.
Once that's done, for the side panel, we are going to cover it with one of the three papers below, as a featured um feature.
Damn I wish I could play like this guy.
