How will I level up after glue up?
The glue on the ellipse is done and I am quite satisfied. I expect to have more gaps however was corrected and repaired by cutting and regluing.
I was hesitant to plane it with my portable Makita but I just thought if it will be destroyed then I give up. It was the right time that I have good control of my hand. So it turned out good after planing…
A belt sander had helped a lot in making the final thickness. I had reduce the thickness now to 0.5mm…. not so bad.
How about the sides? Do I have same wood?
I started to laminate the sides. I have still two strips of Philippine red mahogany and White hard pine (I doubt if this is pine because the grain is not so visible and it is hard to plane. This I got from an old pallet) The color match with the one I used before… This time I took some pictures during the glue up.
What about the corner patterns?
This is the hardest part as you can see the pieces are so small and I don’t have the idea how to do cut. I have some plan but I do it in the right track and time…. Watch for it… Till next time.
