My first draft title was completed...
For a quick project, it still managed to slip over a few days, I don't know why ? :-)
I had previously machined the parts on Wed, Fri I cut half the joints. Tues I finished the joints and assembled it for the first time.
It is a bit hard on my small dovetail saw, it is thick and wetter than seasoned hardwood for sure.
They are quite thick, so I must make double sure they are straight.
Half way done, Friday nite. We had company over so that's where I stopped.
Then we went to supper with friends Sat so Sun no loud noises were allowed :-)
One joint fitted, working on the last one. At that thickness you don't get much room for error.
For a small project it is sure making a mess on my bench :-)
By the time I'm done, I will have to sharpen my chisels for sure. And should probably touch up my dovetail saw and check if I killed the small set on it. I am gonna have to dedicated a dovetail saw for softwood.
I'm working a shift Wed at the base wood shop, surely, I would be able to finished it then?
I will glue it after my afternoon tea, then all I got left for tomorrow is to put in the sides pieces, that will require a small dado on each leg, attach the foot and tada!
I will later put in a few holes for my holdfast, not sure where yet, so I will wait until I used it for a while to decided where. Similarly I may put in a large hole on the top as a handle, will see.
