So I’m back in class now and the wedding approach-ith. T-minus 4 months (eeeep!) So the last time i blogged i have glued up the two 45 degree boards. Thursday the chop saw was in action and i was actually able to get 10 pieces out of the two boards. turns out you only need 8 of these pieces to make a circle (you know, math and all). So here’s the log as it right now. Didn’t have time to glue because i was working on several other projects, but I feel good about thi...
