So, today is Memorial day. Let me just say thanks to the lumberjocks out there who have served or are serving our country that may read this.
I wanted to clean out my shed today so I can get a work space going. Here are a couple pictures of what I’m dealing with.
I didn’t get to it today though because I had to now the lawn and dig a trench to run some piping for drainage. That took much longer than I expected. Besides I doubt the dump would have been open today with the holiday. After I showered up and ate some dinner I couldn’t help myself and went out and ripped some back slats for the chair and took my jig saw out of the box to cut the boards into smaller pieces.
I tried to cut on my lines from the template transfers but I think ill be better off cutting my curved lines about an 8th inch away and then use the belt sanders at work to get it down to the lives evenly. Even going extremely slow and carefully it still turned out to be a sloppy looking cut. It’s hard to keep the cut square, but making a smooth curve seems easy enough.
I made a few cuts. I’m happy. After work tomorrow ill rip the seat slats, cut out the rest of the parts and take the rough cut pices with ne to work the next day to finish them off so I can put the router to them.
Baby steps :)
