All of the pieces are glued up! Drilling the dowel holes to keep things lined up while clamping was more of a job than it should have been with my tiny drill press!:
So that’s another bit of irony…we have a 4’x8’ CNC router, but a tiny ancient drill press :-)
But look! I found a center column for a chevalet at Home Depot!
Just kidding. Turns out that glue doesn’t stick to the plastic that you wrap the clamping wood with, but the ink from the bag does :-).
Here are some of the big pieces that are cleaned up. Just waiting to unclapmp the two seat supports so I can put the bench together. The fun begins!
PS Anyone know why photos come in horizontally, even when they are vertical on my computer?
