Whew Doggie! It’s hot out there.
You may have been through the same thing as me. Glue – clamp – look at the clock – look at the clock – look at the clock…. Either that or you’re gettin’ funky with the pin nailer.
Today and Yesterday it was easy to allow for glue dry time. I work out of the garage and the temperature has been a over 100 for a while. I Cut – Glue – Clamp – and run inside to rehydrate. That glue up time was all said and done by the time I returned to the garage.
Despite my slow pace, I managed to cut and attach the sides of the cocktail table.
I also got started on the legs – Yee Haa!!!!
This is my first encounter with purple heart. That’s some hard wood! I’m going to have to clean my blades up because I could feel those going through the saw. I also got some experience with Peruvian walnut. That is beautiful stuff and it was not quite as hard as the purple heart.
I believe I’m on the backside of this project. There will be lots of sanding to be sure but I can see what the table is becoming and I really like it.
I just want to let you all know that I appreciate the heck out of you. There is no way I would have dreamed of a project like this 15 months ago.
-- Thanks for all the lessons!
