« Part 13: Seat supports, etc Part 14 of Orchard Street Sofa series Part 15: Finally, getting back at it »

I am getting near the end of the project and it seems to be going slower and slower. More on that at the end of this post.

I located the pivot holes in the back legs for the back rest.

Cut the pyramids at the tops of the back rest stiles.

And sanded the corbels to get then ready to attach to the arms.

Now, I have to work on a couple other projects. We currently have 2 tiny “master” closets and a spare bedroom closet that we are combining into one decent sized closet. The spare bedroom is only used as an office. That work begins today and I need to make “cubbies” to go on one wall. That should be done by the end of this week. Then we are going to watch the grand daughters during their Spring Break. When we return, I will replace the current carpeting in the master bedroom and new closet with 3/4” maple flooring, probably about another week.

So, to make a long story even longer, it will be 3 weeks before I will be able to get back to the sofa.

Thanks for all the great comments and for reading along.

Nice detail work Art. It’s the details that make the difference.
