Fitting Long Stretchers

I've finished fitting the long stretchers to the legs. Glue up of the base units is next.

That's all for today it is starting to get hot in the shop. Pool time with MsBubba, Sweet Maggie Dog and a ball. Then short nap followed by monkey suit on and then off to sit in a black box for a couple of hours.

Life is tough here in the desert,



  1. Coming along nicely. Around here when it gets in the mids 30s, we headed out to the Fundy Bay's shore, its about 10 degrees cooler. A short ride over north mountain from the valley.

    1. Bob,

      Thanks, There are a couple of boo-boos, mostly cosmetic with no effect on the structure, that I decided to live with but other than that I'm happy with the progress. I'm off this weekend so I should get the bases glued up and the long stretcher tenons chopped. The big problem is going to be shop floor space to work on it once assembled.

      Unsupervised is good for shop time and soul but not so good for keeping the house from falling down. You and Rudy enjoy while you can :-).
