    @hugo7 are you taking the shed apart to move it? I need to relocate my shed and can't figure out whether to drag it, or take it apart and rebuild it.

    I thought about epoxy (or similar). I feel like most things will fail after much opening. the seals on these are quite effective and its a hard tug (snarf) to open the fridge and freezer door. I think I'm going to go down the planing route and just live with a larger gap on the hinge side than the other cabinets.

    Just to check...it would be insane to screw into a fridge door where there is no manufactured screw hole. I know the answer but would like it validated. it seems some folk online are up for it, I'm less keen.

    What it would allow me to do is attach a slider which I think might work. Then again it may destroy a £500 fridge.

    I feel slightly broken about not being able to get this integrated freezer / fridge door thing resolved. I think I should have bought appliances with sliding door fixtures as these have a very different setup to fixed hinge appliances. Research online tells me that they are not interchangeable so I can't attach a slider fixture to my appliances.

    The only solution I can come up with is to plane the doors enough that they open but the gaps around the edges are going to be huge between the door and cabinet...not ideal.

    Nice to see a thread on this stuff. While I don't do any sign writing anymore - I dabbled a while back but couldn't find the time to get to a level where I was proud of my work. I recently donated a tonne of one-shot to a lady who was getting into it which felt good. I still hope to pick it back up...

    I have been documenting sign writing/generally nice type and signage over on instagram for a while now: https://www.instagram.com/letttters/

    @duncs cheers - it's a more traditional approach to kitchen cabinet making to have the doors inset. The folks over at devol and other hand made kitchen makers still do it.

    The previous one was integrated and retained the inset door, however it was misaligned so I wonder if that was the reason for it.

    I'll see if neff do some sliding hinges as that would probably solve the issue, its only a couple of mm that is catching. I really don't want to plane the doors down and have an increased gap if I can solve it another way.

    DIY halp needed. I have inset kitchen units which are all handmade and lovely etc. I'm removing all the doors, sanding down and repainting and re-hanging. I've just "installed" a new integrated fridge and integrated freezer and went to hang one of the doors on the integrated freezer to see how it looked.

    I can't figure out why the door doesn't open fully though - the right most edge of the cabinet door catches on the cabinet which means the freezer door will only open to about 45 degrees. I cannot for the life of me figure out how this works. The only way I can get it to open is the slide the freezer forward which means the door is misaligned with the rest fo the cabinets.

    Anyone got any good ideas?!

    Great thanks folks. I'll pick up the Zinsser cover stain and report back. @Airhead you mean the Zinsser B-I-N product right?

    I have lots of woodwork to be painted in my new place. Starting in the living room I bought 2.5l of Zinnser Perma White and thought it would do a good cover job, however each coat (4 so far) yellows pretty quickly which I assume is some sort of stain. Any ideas what paint I should be using?

    Paging @Airhead as I think he'll know :-)
