I’ve met my goal of hitting the shop, for one or two sessions each day.
My eyes are pretty seriously fried today, though, so … quite likely … today is a day off :-(
But … where I am….:
All the hardwood is cut. All of the tenons are cut (did one or two on the band saw, but found it more fun cutting them with the table saw, and the Incra 1000SE miter gauge).
So far … everything’s going quite well!
Had a bad thought, though. I remember my brother being rather surprised that I bought the ten inch Forrester Dado King dado stack. He thought that was probably overkill.
I wondered …. whether it was worse than that.
My Bosch table saw owner’s manual says specifically not to use a dado set greater than 8” diameter.
The set goes back, then (sigh).
I’ll cut my dadoes with the router, then, and either replace the Forrester after the holidays or … just … enjoy having a pile of money back in my pocket ;-)
The mahogany plywood panels are cut for the sides and the back. They’re nicely rabbeted. I have drawer boxes to cut next.
Still haven’t set up the mortiser, so … cutting some more ply, cutting dadoes, and then (Eek!) mortising … are the next things on the agenda.
It’s about 15 degrees outside. There’s snow on the ground. The skies are blue. The sun is shining. I may go enjoy the outside world for a while :-)
Happy Holidays to all y’all!
