I am ever so close to staining. All of the gluing and sanding is done as of now. I’m going to give everything a once over to see if there are any more spots that needed sanding. Otherwise, I’m ready to start staining. I am going to stain the top before attaching it.
Here is the post all glued up:
This is a close up of the arms. The groove you see was routed in. The buttons I made previously will help connect the top.
This is how it looks without the top on:
And here it is with the top! It isn’t attached. I just wanted to see what it would look like.
I’m looking forward to this weekend’s staining.
