This Saturday Hive13 is having a Make some Doors work party.
I’ll be there from 10:30 am to around 4 pm - Come join the crew to turn some of the shelves in the back of Hive13 into doors for the front of Hive13.
Please let us know if you can come by responding to this post.
We have hundreds of pine shelves and many 2x6’s which are free for us to use in projects. Maybe this will give you ideas about other things you can build with this FREE WOOD.
The first step is to dismantle some shelves. It will take at least two shelves to make one door. It’s a dirty job, but kinda fun to tear the shelves down. We’ll demonstrate the use of a pry bar and hammers to remove nails from wood. If you have leather work gloves, you may want to wear them for this job.
Once we have enough wood for a pair of doors, We’ll use the wood shop to turn the salvaged wood into doors for the back end of the wood shop.
Why the back end of the wood shop? Because it’s an OK place to do our prototype. Once we have one set done we can keep moving until we have all of the doorways covered. Who knows, we may get better at this door building business as we go along. Eventually we might even be as good as the Nomad Design guys on the first floor. (or not)
Depending on how much we get done, the next step is to frame the doorway and hang the doors. Door frames will be constructed from the 2x6’s. The doors will be hung from salvaged hinges.
