« Part 3: She's got legs..... Part 4 of Working title - LLB series Part 5: A momentary lapse of reason »

Short blog today. Not much shop time.

Cut the 60 degree angles on the sides of the box inner.

and fitted them into the outer shell.

Still nothing glued at this stage as a lot of work to be done on the inner (Padauk) liner before I can even attempt this.

First I need to mark the inside to register the position on the inner where the legs will pass through the outer

Remove the masking tape from one leg side and remove the Sycamore spacer.

Its then a simple matter to score lines guided by each side of the slot. Also scored the length to trim the side to. Replace and re-tape the spacer and do the other two leg sides in turn.

Finally made up some pieces for the top liner (3 mm Padauk) and the box bottom from Yeahwhatever, commonly known as Somethingbrownwood. Acquired from my favourite wood supplier, Scrapsbin.

Thats all for today, its cold in here and my fingers have gone numb.

Be seeing you.

I had a little ceramic heater when my shop was in my garage. It was not too expensive but did wonders to keep my hands warm. I also cut the fingers out of some gloves and I was able to last much warmer that way. It is looking good so far. I look forward to subsequent reports.
