Bottom grille frames cut and stained. Just need to cut some grooves into the reverse side so they can lay flat over the mesh and then that can be fully assembled.

The plan is to stain the inside of the doors and crown molding, and have the doors mounted by end of weekend. Getting very close now.

Already starting to do some final waxing/poly and polishing.

Door insides are stained, and I figured how to secure the gears to the handle axles. I may end up doing 1 vertical lock and 1 horizontal (as is accurate) after all due to one handle being looser than the other.

Just waiting on stain to dry and then I believe I'll be ready to mount the doors. However since it's 6PM that may not be today :)

Trying to not get ahead of myself and get sloppy as things are wrapping up.

Got a punch list of little items to fix up:
- Crown molding trim pieces need to be detailed (there are 3 dots to carve in every curved section) and stained
- Cut the hole(s) in the ceiling for the locking post(s) to insert. In doing so, decide whether I want both vertical or one vertical/one horizontal
- Thin cover pieces need to be attached on the outer front edges to cover the outer halves of the hinges
- The bottom handles came loose while staining the door backs, so need to re-secure those
- Pressure switch in the door to auto activate the overhead lights
- Find some sort of diffuser cover for the lights so they aren't so intense and focused
- Mount Batarangs!

Gear rack mounting tonight. So, due to reasons I'll need to mount the right assembly vertically, and the left assembly horizontally. But that's okay -- that's accurate!

However, what's not accurate is that I won't be able to put one of the lock bar bracers right on the edge of the door. There just isn't room. So both will go on the inner side of the gear... which is okay. The gear still turns and the bar still moves smoothly and securely. I will however need to trim that bar so only about 2 inches protrudes over the door edge.

So basically, the right door will lock into the ceiling, and the left door will lock into the right door.

A few more small sub-projects wrapping up. I have now (what I believe to be the first ever) accurate replica Grapple Gun darts. These are 3D printed resin. I need to bore out a deeper opening in the gun barrel to push them in all the way.
