on day 1 I layed out the ground plan, and fixed the vertical beams on the top. In hindsight, I should have fixed the bottom part, but that’s a piece of experience I gained

Between day 1 and day 2, the plans changed. Instead of a 6’6″ x 3’3″ rectangular surface, the plans were now a 6’6″ x 6’6″ L-shape. The diagonal 1×3’s make the structure stand vertically.

Now it’s standing vertically, and the top and bottom are at the correct distances. Note that the middle leg, and the front most leg are warped. I had to go get more lumber and replace them

A Beginner's Progress #5: Starting the Final Assembly

09-29-2007 01:58 AM by jstewart | 0 comments »

I’ve finally started the final assembly on the basic nightstand I’m building. I’ve glued up both of the sides and put them in clamps to dry for the night. Tomorrow I’ll put the other apron boards in as well as the bottom shelf. Then It’s just some finishing work. I’m still trying to decide what type of finish to use. I like to keep wood looking its natural color, so I might not use any stain at all.

Green house 2 #5: Day 4

08-29-2017 08:21 PM by wlusink | 0 comments »

On this day, I continued the work on the table top / main shelf. I had to re-do some 1×3’s due to a lack of planning All in all it didn’t seem like a lot of progress, but as you all know, a good preparation is half the work.
