I got some progress on my little table for The Sawdust Chronicles 2010 Build Challenge. It seems with every step I take I feel the frustration of compromise. This is not going to be perfect. Thats always the goal and I have yet to make anything were every cut was perfect. I wonder if I should be focusing on improving my skills or figuring out ways to circumvent my lack of skill with ingenuity? But if I found a way around my lack of skill problem would that just mean that my “skill” was inventing ways around being skill less? Well either way I have some, far from prefect, pieces of my table started on their way.
Here is a quick reminder of where I’m headed.
I have the top lamination glued to some mdf and the frame glues together.
I also made a tenon jig and made the uh um… I don’t know its a cross piece. This table doesn’t have an apron so its in lieu of that.
Yes thats a band-aid on my thumb. I got this whacky idea to hone my card scrapper on my Worksharp 3000 and then roll the edge on it. Turns out you can get a razor sharp burr on a card scrapper. Don’t ask how I cut my thumb open with a card scrapper.
