In the meantime, I've started removing the doors and prepping them for painting. Something about those open cupboards that Ali just can't resist:

Sometimes you can hear her trying to work the door open which wasn't too hard with the old hinges. Now there's no door but she's starting to lose interest, guess that like me she enjoyed the challenge.
I won't get into the details of how I know this but I'm thankful for 3/16" dowels that are capable of plugging holes drilled in the wrong place! I've decided to break the door prepping into manageable bites of 7 doors at a time. I remove them, stamp a letter near the upper hinge position to know where they belong and then put a piece of masking tape on the corner that needs to be drilled for the handle. Well, in the process it could hypothetically happen that you would drill the hole on the horizontal member instead of the vertical member of the door where it should be. Remember the 3/16" dowel? I decided there had to be a better way to mark them so my aging, sanding dust addled mind wouldn't make a mistake. Just like so many other things in woodworking a simple jig was all that was required:
