« Part 1: off to a good start Part 2 of Father - Daughter Project series Part 3: Top glued up »

Status update… We’ve got eight 48” long boards done, and fortunately, only need one more. That will cover the top and the long rails.

Then we’ll have to go back through our few remaining 7’ rough sawn boards and the cut offs from the boards we’ve already processed to get our short rails and the styles.

There are so many knots and checks in the lumber, that we’re going to be cutting it close.

I may half to get a sheet of 1/4” oak plywood for the panels.

I’ll be following you progress, great times with kids in the shop are hard to beat no matter what you build, but this is one she’ll treasure.
