These went together beautifully, thanks to careful custom fitting and labeling tongues and grooves. As noted before, the structure is cherry and the panels are juniper.
I haven’t yet envisaged the stretcher, so that’s the Monday project. It may be cherry, it may be juniper. Both are in stock.
There was another insight that struck me today while I was thinking about the logistics of finishing these two pieces and how much real estate that would require and how much that would put the kibosh on other work.
I’ll finish the bases first, before I even glue up the tops! I can finish these in my bass/inventory/former spray room and shut the door and do other work in the shop while they dry!
When the tops are done, they can either be finished in tandem in the main shop (kiboshing other work simultaneously) or be finished one at a time in the BIFS room.
Enough hard thinking for this week. I’ll wail through some 150 grit paper and call it a day.
