Pocket Door Project Continuation
This second pocket door I’ve been working on gave me a bit of a challenge, but I’ve finally figured out how to do it. Unlike my previous project, this door had never been cut for for door hardware, so I was working with a solid piece of pine.
I know it was too big to put in a drill press, or, at least any drill press I had. I also know I didn’t want to do it free hand because I couldn’t risk drilling in at an angle. There wasn’t enough room for error.
So, in looking over all the possible tools out there, and keeping price in mind, I settled on a doweling guide. You know what? It worked. I still had to do a lot of chiseling and there was quite a bit of labor involved, but this created a good sized hole from which I could continue.
