So just after Christmas I decided to have a go at a carcass type project. I got carried away and bought a Makita track saw to help me break down sheet goods. So I went to my local diy shop (Wickes) and bought some of their ‘hardwood ply’, in reality its pretty rubbish stuff, but the timber yards were shut between Christmas and New Year, not to mention the fact that I wanted to play with my new toy.

The colors are Martha Stewart’s “Monk’s Glove” and “Chianti” from Home Depot. Working on these in my garage attracted a lot of attention. As I was fi...
I’ve made a lot of progress on this project, but I’ve been so busy since the kids got out of school for the summer, that I haven’t had much computer time lately to update my blog. Here I have the three piece legs glued up and I’m testing the fit of the tenons.
