Ok hardware is on ,,, Today I have cut up the fridge . there are 2 refrigerant lines that run through the sides and surrond the freezer door ... Ask me how I know? because I cut them .. Its just as well . since the system is open I can change all the lines I need ,to reduced the size of the unit....... Some oak takes stain better than others ,so I will re -coat the left doors to try and darken the color up

I had to locate the wiring to remove to cut across the inside compartment , you can see they taped the refrigerant lines to the side of the case ,no way to cut without hitting them

Thanks for taking all the pictures. Beautiful work, too. Hell, anyone's SWMBO would let that hang out in the house.
