So It is a good thing this will be the last week of my remodel.
I currently have orders for;
A music stand, 6 dining room chairs, a bench and chair for the library, 31 snake canes, mountain top cane heads, walnut sofa legs for an upholsterer in Portland and I need to finish up the candle stick holders, not to mention anything I want to build for a gallery. WOW!
So today I put the door trim on;
I need to do some paint touch-ups on the door frame, I got a little wild with my background paint.
I got the leg vise chop out of the clamps and it looks like it is going to work very well.
I yanked the bench away from the wall today and started putting the skirting on it. I also milled out for where the wagon vise goes. It might have easier to cut the board short when I glued it up, but I doubt it. Everything went really quickly and it is just about ready to stick the vise in place.
I cut the leg shoulders to apply the skirting.
For the rest of the day I milled the tenon on the slab that gets the end vise and dovetailed the skirt on. Those goofy dovetails are tedious to make.
So there it is, five days left. This has been such a trip and so fun for me to share with everyone. I am going to be going gangbusters to get it all wrapped up. I think I can do it though.
Thanks and have a great week.
P.S. If you can, maybe drop a line of encouragement to chairmaker and master woodworker Jeff Miller. He recently had an operation and is pretty banged up. He has been a big influence on my woodworking and I hope to take a class form him in 2017. You can read about it here;
