Ive had a couple of weeks between posts here due to a small arborist project that i was called in on in the front yard … they were scraggly pines; no wood gloat here. But, in the past couple of weeks Ive completed all the M&T’s and all the other joinery on the entry bench, so this afternoon i was able to give it the dry fit test. Im happy about the way things are shaping up but i know i still have the glue up and the finishing left so im trying not to get too fired up and rush the finish of the project. Any way here she is …..
And my first attempt at stopped sliding dovetails.
