WELL it’s summer and the outdoor projects need to get done .
Here is a new way for me of making up a post blank for the round posts I need for the planter boxes I am making for our back yard arbour.
I am using 2×6 and 2×4 construction lumber for this and I am cutting a simple half dovetail joint to help align the lumber during clamp up of the post blank which also increases the gluing surface .
It’s works very well as the pieces push them self together as clamp pressure is applied in one direction only
therefore I only need about half the amount of clamps that I would normally use and it speeds up the glue up process .
When the glue is dry I will plane this post to size and forty five the corners and the turn it round.
