Morning.
Paul, thanks so much for your enthusiasm and support. Thanks Dutchy for following my build. Below are a few pictures of the beginnings of the build. With me not using a table saw anymore, I have been cutting the joints, especially the bridle and M&T joints, by hand and I find immense enjoyment and satisfaction in doing them. Considering the time it used to take to set up the tenoning jig, cross checking the angle of the blade etc etc, I am finding that a good cup of coffee, no machine and dust extraction system noise and gently satisfying chiselling all go together well and only takes a few extra minutes to complete the joint.

Thought I commented on this but I guess it showed up on the first segment.
Anyway, looking really good.

Thanks so much, Paul. Sorry about the wrong sequence and placing, this is the first time that I have blogged and I can’t quite get my head around the titles and sequences of my posts.

It’s pretty easy. When you start a new blog entry, click the “series” drop down menu and select this series (or ‚ÄĚstart new series” if it a new one). Your series title and segment number will fill automatically. Don’t type them again.
Then fill in the segment title and go on with your text etc.
You’re doing great, it isn’t that intuitive as it is set up but once you get the hang of it, it’s really a nice format.

The confusion came mostly because you also edited the first segment and added the new photos. (I think)

That’s all just the little sh** that we’re not supposed to sweat. The important thing is that you’re building a very nice looking chevalet and we’re going to be seeing some more marquetry on the site.

You should drop in to the chevalet clubhouse and introduce yourself.

Hi Paul. Thanks for the pointers, I am sure that I will get the hang of it. You are incredibly kind and helpful. I shall pop a few more image up tomorrow, I am still fiddling with my brasswork.
Take care
Tobias
