« Part 2: making some progress prepping the lumber Part 3 of Father - Daughter Project series Part 4: Top is looking good.... ready for bread boards »

Spent quite a while finishing up the top boards….

Planed them down in a batch to get exactly the same thickness….

Cut to 1” over finish length and then joined the edges again as needed to get all the neighbors nice and cozy.

Called in my helper to cut buiscut joints every 6”

Got everything laid out and set up, and went through a dry run glue up.

Despite our best efforts to be totally prepared, it was a mad scramble to get her clamped up in time….

I need to finish up my cross cut sled so we can square up the ends, then we’ll cut the end tennons and breadboard mortices.

See ya next time

Those smiles say it all. I too am concerned about that really long, beautiful hair getting caught in a power tool. Be careful!
