« Part 2: First couple of days Part 3 of FWW Build Off '08 series Part 4: Wine Rack Installment #4 »

It’s coming along. Thursday I managed to get all of the tip done (bottom of the picture) and most of the way to the top.


At this point, things got pretty slow. While doing the tip, moving down as well as moving up, I could do 4 planks at a time and have the first one dry by the time I finished the 4th. Then I could start over and just keep going. Once the tip was done, I could only do 2 at a time and then had to wait for the glue. So I kept myself busy making a couple clamps from scrap wood:


This is as far as I got by Friday night:


Today, the bottom is done. Now I can start sanding (oh joy, the fun part :o).

This is interesting. I am glad to see that you found something else to do instead of sitting around and watching the glue dry. That is an impressive glue up. I really admire both your patience and persistence.

Have fun.
