« Part 1: Templates Part 2 of Limbert Lamp Table - Stickley #240 series Part 3: Jigs & Dry Fit »

Yesterday, I milled up four long, rough boards to 3/4”. The Robert Lang book uses thicker stock, but I had to get rid of the saw marks. I chopped them up a bit oversized to give me some leeway during the glue up. I arranged the boards for defects and grain to give me the best four sides out. I glued up one panel every two hours last night during dinner and a movie. This morning they’re all ready for the band saw. One thing I’ve noticed is that there seems to be a lot of waste with this project. Luckily, I had the lumber left over that wasn’t necessarily earmarked for a specific project, and I’m going to go buy all the wood for the dining room table, so I was able to use my current lumber at my discretion. This table will temporarily be used as a sideboard in our dining room until I can make a real one. My defacto father in law, who’s an excellent woodworker in his own right, will be here this weekend, so I want to have something cool to show him.
