I worked on this last weekend but didn’t post anything because all I got done were the feet. The plans to this thing are kind of lame. The legs are only two sided with a 15 degree bevel on them. I really had to just guess on everything, they gave you dimensions, but that was it, didn’t tell you about the bevels or anything, if you just did everything square, nothing fit, so I just tweeked it myself.

I started on the doors last weekend too, but discovered I had a problem with my jointer so it took me the rest of last weekend and part of this weekend working on that before I could get going on the doors. I have the door frames cut, jointed and planed, so now I can start on the rest. Unfortunately, it may not be real soon, I have some weekend plans coming up so might have to delay.

This seems to be taking me an awfully long time….seems wrong!

Thanks for reading.
