This is the firts peice of mission style furniture I have tried. I got in a hurry during the glue up which resulted in a few peices not coming to gether as tight as I would have liked, but I dought the wife will ever notice.
Since there were so many peices to glue up I used a slow steting plastic resin glue. What I didn’t realize is how much that stuff expands when it starts foaming, so I had a bit of a mess to clean up. If anyone has any suggestions on keeping the clean up to a minimum when using this glue or a better slow setting glue I am all ears.
It is made of solid red oak motice and tenoned together, except for the top and back whick is 1/4 oak plywood nailed into a rabbit.
Thanks for looking and any and all suggestions are welcome
