Out of the clamps and ready for slat installation. I notched both fronts of each slat so that the leading edge meets the face; I just nibbled on the TS, too lazy to make another jig, but I might for the next few.
I made them about 1/32 too thick & I’ll knock the width down with a block plane. I want snug, but not tight enough to fracture the supports.
Got them all in.
Seal coat of 1lb. amber shellac
I’ll knock it down with 400 then a couple coats of wipe poly
