Spent the night in with the family last night. Which was fine because I wanted to let the glue set a bit longer before doing anything that might stress the joints.
So no progress made last night but got started early this morning.
Took the head out of the clamps and cleaned up and flattened the top and bottom. Then using the string trick I figured out the angle for the faces to be cut at.
Scored some nice deep lines for the cuts and got to cuttin’
Then turned my attention to the handle. Got out the weapons of choice and decided to try out the saw bench as a shaping bench. I have to say it works beautifully in the role. The hold fast keeps it steady but you can still scoot it side to side if needed and the V in the front allows for full access to all sides of it while working. Pretty snazzy. Again.. should have made one of these benches a long time ago lol.
Well, I have a bit left to go on the handle but it’s starting to get there. More to come soon.
