This evening I put some finish on a project I started last week. It is a Shaker style step stool for a Mother’s Day gift. Cherry with Bird’s Eye Maple steps. There were several firsts in the project; First real project using dovetails, First project using liquid hide glue, and I finally broke down and bought a random orbit sander…why did I wait so long?
The dovetails come out pretty well. I was able to fill the few gaps I ended up with using the method described by Shannon @ renaissancewoodworker.com
I used CA as the little wedges were quite small. A spritz of activator and they were ready to be cleaned up.
If anyone is interested I’ve got more pictures and rambling about the build on my blogger page.
