All the Single Pieces -
 
Wuh uh oh uh uh oh … ♪ ♫ ♫ ♪
 

 
All the single pieces … ♫ ♪ ♪ ♫
 

 
... all the single pieces … ♫ ♪ ♪ ♫
 

 
... now that I’m done channeling my inner Beyonce, perhaps it’s time to get back to sticking the frame members and start some assembly!
 
After considerable thought as to the design of the kneeling platform, I have completely changed the sticking profile on the frame members. I have decided on 1/16 x 7/16 inch rebates in from the corners, with a 5/8 inch quarter round. I think this looks more like the sticking on the original desk on frame. Also, as to not mar the faces of these pieces I decided not to use my sticking board with all those nails. Instead I just held the parts to the bench with dogs and a bar clamp …
 

 
... to cut the kerfs for the shoulders …
 

 
... and my Moxon vise to remove waste with a block plane …
 

 
... and to complete the rebate with a chisel.
 

 
I just left the part in the Moxon to form the arc with the No. 10 hollow.
 

 
I’m pleased with how the sticking turned out on the aprons …
 

 
... and the stretchers!
 

 
Don’t know about you, but I think it’s starting to look a little William & Maryish !
 

 
Next up … the kneeling platform and drawboring! Thanks for looking … all comments and/or questions welcomed … more to come!

Very nice hand work. I like the way you molded the top of the rails, with the home made kerfing saw followed by the molding plane. I find this type of hand crafted woodworking more rewarding than setting up a machine to do it. There is some sort of mystic about “hand crafted” items, but Im not sure what exactly.
Anyway, nice work, thanks for showing.

Thank you, Sir! I agree that there is a mystic surrounding hand crafted work … perhaps it’s the somewhat consistent inconsistencies. I know I sure like it! Again, that you for your kind words.
