« Part 8: Shiplap on horizontal piece Part 9 of Contemporary Cross project series no next part

I brushed glue inside both of the dadoes and then clamped it together to dry.

Here is a view unclamped and with a bit of face sanding to clean it up. I forgot to take a picture after the final sanding, but basically rounded over the edges a bit and thinned the thickness a bit on the 4 ends.

I put three or four coats of spray lacquer and hand rubbed to a nice satin finish. Here is a test hanging on the wall before shipping.

Happy to report that the customer said it exceeded her expectations. That is a great thing to hear!

The lap joint looks good. Nice job.

Thanks Broglea and Tad. The curved edge joint was probably the hardest part to figure out. Seems to have worked pretty well.
