I finished the rough cutting! YAY!
And I started finishing cutting. The reason I say this is deceiving is because I really need to finish cut twice, and then of course after the finishing cutting is done I have to.. um… actually finish it and then do the rest of the table. :)
In this image I’m roughly 1/3 to 1/2 done with the finishing. (Which is where I left off today!). I should say.. FIRST PASS.
Hey look, Florida! :)
You can see a nice before/after here. You can also see that the parts that got chewed up pretty hardcore from the first cutting bit really aren’t any worse for the wear anymore.
What you may notice are some flat spots (which I have carefully marked with a pink marker for easy spotting later)... I missed some spots in my roughing-glueing process. What can I say, it was a complicated process. Anyway, I’m going to glue some small pieces of wood onto t he flat spots and re-cut them when I do the second finishing pass.
Once it is done cutting there will be no need to sand anything. :)
