With the end cap finished it is time to get the front laminate on but the is slight problem. When I was planing the dog hole strip even with the top I made the classic beginners mistake of falling off the edge. It is not a big deal now but I do not want to perpetuate the slope in the next lamination. So, using the dominos to my advantage I placed a couple business cards on the dog hole strip to elevate the hole. The third photo show the front laminate above the dog strip.
Now the DT’s (that doesn’t sound right). This technique was written by Jameel in the August issue of Pop Wood.
It is nice to have a shooting board with matching bench hook!
This shows the set-up at the band saw with the jig and stop.
Marking the end cap to cut to length. I cut a rabbet to the back side of the tails. The tails were then transfered to the end cap. This is the clever aspect of this technique. I hogged out the for the pins but only to 1/4” deep. Then snuck up on the fit with a chisel. Once satisfied rout to depth with a pattern bit. this worked well.
I think this a great technique that leads to reliable results. I am happy.
Thanks for following along. I hope to be done in 10 months.
