They’re done. All 256 of them. I rethought and then reconfigured the jig a bit so I could keep the same reference surface when drilling both ends of the “rungs”.

This month I created a tribute video to Edward Barnseley, one of the last Arts and Craft English woodworkers who created furniture with only hand tools until 1951,.
