After a bit of a layoff as far as the shop is concerned, I got busy. Milled my stock
First up was to cut the lap joints for the center of the supports. I set up my GP mitre box with a moveable stop and set the depth stop.
I made the first cut on all the pieces
Then the second
Nice and tight!
Next up, marking the tenons
Then cutting them
Not so good at first, but improved
To fix my poor workmanship I mad a jig for my 71
Finally to remove the waste another jig
The nite stands will have two sets of cross members joining four uprights. one set about six inches off the floor with a floating shelf and the second set at the top supporting a floating top and a drawer suspended below it.
Mock up, sort of !
The next installment will feature
