Don’t ask me why I’m doing this or why I’m doing it this WAY because my only defense is the thought of what it will look like when I’m done…if I ever get there.
Here is where I messed up:
Second mistake, I made the base first. Then compounded it by inverting the boards for the base making the lid not even close to fitting. I’ll fix that by adding an oak frame around the walnut frame and then each wood will be represented on the lid too.
Third mistake, thinking that I’m going to use biscuits to join all this wood together. Biscuits are cool when needed, but I don’t really need them because my board are 5/8 thick glue will work just fine. I had to take a layer off the box and ruin several pieces to find this out.
Fourth, Whoever said finishing work before assembly is crazy. Never again.
Ever had one of those days?
