« Part 8: base assembly glue up Part 9 of what i've been doing series Part 10: Double Beveled Dovetails »

First off I had to plug the hole’s the dado’s left at the end of the rails. Once that was done then I used a flush cut saw and removed the excess.

The next step was to even out the top of the rails with the leg assembly.

They were a little proud because my dowel jig leaves something to be desired.

Now its time to predrill and dry fit the piano hinge.

Not bad for a bench on a bench.

You can see the live edge I left on the bottom rear of the bench seat.

I had to take it inside and let my wife see it.

Now more sanding and some finish. The check I had placed filler in is still wet.
