That is one of the panels that needed repair. Not only was it cracked but also out of alignment, you can see how much material I had to sand away to get the two edges level. Sanding naturally removed the original finish, now I had to re-stain the panel as best as I could to get a reasonable match with the surrounding wood.
As I was working out today's topics an interesting article showed up in my in box.
" Your First Tool Kit" , I agree with everything that he has included. That would be a good tool kit to take to a shop that supplied all the standard power tools. I would add to his list a shop knife, Robertson screw drivers and a coping saw.
The last thing to talk about today.
