« Part 5: joinery starts Part 6 of what i've been doing series Part 7: im a idiot when it comes to design »

I had to stop working on the dovetails because my legs had cured. I wanted to place some bow ties on the joined leg assembly. And needed to do it before I cut the pins in the sides of the leg assembly.

As you have probably noticed the whole project is on a 6 in 1 theme.

All the leg angles.

The bow-ties.

I had taken some 4/4, drew out the bow-tie, cut it out on the bandsaw. Then re-sawed the one I made so they would be identical.

I didn’t want to place the bow-tie all the way through the leg assembly because I did it by hand and didn’t want any blowout.

Not bad for hand done. The holidays are up for me and I am returning to work in the morning. So the project will slow down in its progression.

Oh the mirror is on my bench because if shop lighting. It was my mothers and its one of those 10 power deals. It is great for my eyes are going bad and I can focus light on the back side of what I am chopping on. Its an old one so it weighs enough and doesn’t bounce when I am hammering..
