Quick picture update for anyone following this father’s day gift builds.
I put the bottom of the bench together this morning before Tom and I went to the pool for the afternoon. Tomorrow I need to put the braces on the legs as well as put the back on it. I should have time because my wife is going to a concert with her friend so it will be just Tom and I tomorrow night. I have it sanded already to 150 grit and only need to hand sand it 220 to remove the pigtails before I spray it with spar varnish. So it appears that everything is on schedule to be done in time for Father’s day. Here are those pictures I promised;
First up is a front view of the assembled base, minus the braces.
Second it a side view.
And last is a over head view so you can see the square cut nails, the three board glue up and how beautiful the grain is on the red elm that I am using.
Thanks for checking and the next update will be the pictures for the finished project. Cheers
