Today marked the beginning of a joint Mississippi lumberjocks project….
For now, I just want to take a moment and ask that if anyone happens to figure out what the project is, please don’t spoil the fun and post what it is…..
So, after a bit of delay on KTMM’s part….. (SWMBO hit him with a honeydo list), he was finally able to make it to William’s shop. SuperDav721 beat him getting there….
The three started the project out with a cup (or three) of coffee, followed by watching William cut and tape the life size poster of the project together. SuperDav was nice enough to put measurements on the poster after the three figured out it was a few cm’s off.
This project is done in metric units, so we are using metric / imperial tape measures….
After a bit of delay setting up some table saw alignment issues, William and SuperDav commenced to doing initial rips of oak panels for framing the project….
KTMM brought his new Porter-Cable planer out to break it in…..
After a goodbye to Superdav, William and KTMM worked out the initial cutlist and went to work….
Which produced this pile, which will be the main frame for this project.
And that’s where the day’s fun ended…..
