« Part 2: Beams Part 3 of not so Koshuo Bench series Part 4: attaching the Beams »

I Finally got some time to work on the Bench today ! woo hoo ! I scraped and sanded the top and bevelled the bottom half of the seat, I did it all manually with a smoother planer, block planer, and a japanese saw. The supports for the Cross braces for the Beams turned out nice, I love to do it by hand, it is so much fun! and it looks really nice, pictures tomorrow. I am building the Cross beams right now and I am not to sure about the design yet, I like it but it’s just not complete to me yet. will have to wait to see what the out come looks like tomorrow. I love this maple it is so much fun to carve. I love working with the planers and the japanese saws, I did a complicated end cut on the support beams with a japanese saw and it turned out pretty good, I can tell I am getting better, tomorrow I am going to keep working on the cross beams. I will finish up with the first design and see if I like it when it is completed cut, I think I am really going to do good at this business.
