I’ve got all the holes and plugs cut and if I never have to cut another Greene and Greene style plug again I’ll be very happy… Just kidding, I love the way these look and I will be doing more projects in this style. It is really nice to be able relax and listen to music while I work instead of machinery for a change but they do get really tedious after a while. Next time I’m going to make a few everytime I’m in the shop instead of waiting until the end and having to do all of them at once. I still need to insert all the plugs so I don’t have any photos to show that will look any different than previous shots but I know how well a blog without photos goes over on LJs so I gotta post something. :)
I was having a little trouble cutting the plugs off after pillowing them so I came up with this nifty little jig. At first I thought I was a genius but then I remembered the old crosscut box my Dad used when I was a kid. This is really the same thing only smaller. Now I feel kind of stupid for not thinking of it sooner…
And for final sanding I made use of a sanding ball that I got from Harbour freight a couple of years ago and forgot about. It’s great for sanding odd shaped curves and it did the job of a few grits of normal paper real easily. This is the “Fine” grit and I also have a medium and a coarse.
