Well, here are some photos from the first glue up:
The Schwarz said that pine is resinous and resists glue so acetone helps.
The roller idea is the Renaissance Woodworker’s—and i like it!
Probably should have waited till it was a bit more dry and firm…
Also, i decided to see what could be done with the botched stretchers.
Cutting 4” off half of my bottom stretchers to make two 2” tenons when laminated; note the Wood Whisperer pencil. And as i type this i am actually wearing a WW t-shirt!
New blade for saw
Making the cut with my guide from the Columbus WW show in January (but i couldn’t get the handle to snap all the way down…)
Sneak peak of bottom stretcher (i am thinking to do the tenons but with a bolt through so i can knock them down. Or should i do a lap joint?)
