Today I had a little time on my hands (and the rain stopped for a bit) so I took advantage and cut out the rough blanks for the two small aprons and the fourth leg. Since the aprons are going to be approx. 2” x 4” when finished, I was able to just put a flat spot on the log with the chainsaw and run them through the bandsaw. PIECE OF CAKE! After I finished rough cutting them, I decided that when I make a project out of logs in the future, I will only make sizes that will fit in the bandsaw. Running those large planks through the planer 50+ times is a real chore!!!
Progress to this point. Small apron blanks on the bottom show a definite difference – Mark
