« Part 3: Two Steps Forward, One Step Back... Part 4 of Building the Spine Desk series Part 5: Final Work and Assembly »

[Above] After having some special alone time with my band saw, I cut out the new pieces for the brackets. Before removing the tape, I broke out my new friend and sanded the curved edges. [Below] Breaking the tape shows the dadoes I made on the pieces. This time they came out perfect! The pieces fit together pretty tight.

[Below] So I glued them together and clamped them.

[Below] So now it’s just a matter of drilling, sanding, assembling and a little more cutting.

Well, you have my curiosity up, and I still don’t see a desk in there.

The two tables are on the table saw and router table to the left of the spine. The brackets that hold the tables to the spine are on the same table as the spine.

Curiosity is a good thing. If I have a good day tomorrow, I should get most of it done except for the finish.
