« Part 5: Back Building Part 6 of Porch Glider series Part 7: Look Ma, No Clamps! »

It’s nice having some momentum going on this, with my third night in a row in the shop after spending nearly a month not working on the glider. I actually got a lot of this done last night, and finished up attaching the upper brace when I got home from work tonight.

The upper brace attached:

I rounded off the end of the upper brace. The plan didn’t call for this, but I thought it’d look much better. I still need to sand this brace, so it’s going to have to come off again. I’m planning on rounding over the corners at that time too, as I think it will look better and not so chunky:

Looks like you are doing very nice work on this Jimi. I like those square drive screws too.

Thanks Mike. I definitely like the square drives better. They’re easier to put in, and if you cam one out a little it’s hardly noticeable as compared to a Phillips-head, so they look better too.
