Galley and Side Hatch door liners...

Over the last couple of days we've been making up the front panel for the kitchen carcasses and the framing for the side hatch door liners. It isn't the easiest thing to do in such a confined space, with no bench to work at, everything is made on the floor. It plays havoc with the knee's and back.
Kitchen fascia fixed together and left overnight for the glue to set.
The side hatch liners are made from softwood as we intend to paint these to match the exterior decoration of the boat.

Two liners here, squared up and jointed together

 We fitted the kitchen fascia today, a quick sand over and the frame was ready to glue and screw in position. The doors won't be fitted till much later.

One set of side hatches nearly done.
A once over with the belt sander then finished with the orbital
The surplus glue that seeped out of the joint didn't half make it hard to release the frames from the floor, if I remember next time I'll be placing some paper down on the floor to stop them sticking. All that's left to do now is to router a rebate around the inner opening for the plywood panel and some sort of decorative moulding around the front.
