Beginning woodworkers may have a tendency to measure each cut before it is made even though all the cuts to ...
I am laying out the legs now to accept the panels and railsThis is where the center stile will fit into the top and bottom rail.The tenons are only 1/4” and the panels will float in the rails and stiles. The strength that holds the sides together will be from the rails, the top and bottom shelf which will be 3/8” X 1 1/4” tenons pined from the legs.
My first “real” carving and first time ever posting the process of a piece of work, so please just have patience with me :) The fish began with a piece of driftwood I found in the creek behind my house. It already had a nice curve to it, was fairly solid and had a natural “mouth” which I immediately thought would make a pretty cool fish. (sorry I don’t have a pic of the driftwood before I began sanding it some, I just wanted to see what it look...

I was searching around in the Google Search engine and found The Dust Deputy . I used a Home Depot bucket and my Ridgid vacuum cleaner.
