« Part 9: Styles are done Part 10 of Father - Daughter Project series Part 11: tweaked tenons and dry fit assembly »

I decided to do them on the router table, as the setup seemed to be easier and my dado blade isn’t so grand.

Unfortunately, it’s not much of a father-daugher project any more, as my daughter now has a babysitting job and is is more interested in spending her free time with her books and other activities.

Feeling a tad rejected by that, but it was my mistake to offer to do the project out of reclaimed Oak Beams (which I originally milled for use in our timber frame house ~15 years ago).

Working with this wood has been very tedious and has greatly increased the labor required at every step.

Daughter #2 is getting hers made out of Mahogany, from 4/4×4” boards salvaged from a new deck project by my buddy…. all straight grained and defect free.

The good thing is that when all is said and done….
she will have at least, had a hand in making it with you.
That will surely be a memory that lasts a lifetime!

You never know, she may want to help some more in the coming days, weeks, months, years…
I don’t know how fast/slow you work, while shedding a tear!!! ;^(

I’m pressing on Randy…. Need to jump into the next project, and the one after that, etc…
