« Part 6: 4th class and a "little "progress Part 7 of Furniture School series Part 8: Caught up with the new legs »

Well week 6 is behind me and so am I on this project. Last night I glued up the boards for the top and cut the tenons in the aprons( the blue tape was a big hit even with the instructor). There was another event tonight but they did not appreciate all the noise that was coming out to the lobby. Too bad we kept going. When I put the rails and legs together I realised how ugly the 8/4 poplar was and that I could have easily designed something nicer in my own shop. So back to the drawing board and I thing I will incorporate a contrasting wood for the legs. I am fortunate in a sense that if I do not finish in the next 4 classes I can take it home and work on it in my shop. A lot of the other guys only own the minimum homeowner tool set. Hey! I could rent out shop time hummm! Maybe a “COOP” of some kind hummm!. Ok! back to reality, this week was non instructional so not much to talk about there,I did cut the top to size on an “amazing” General pro panel saw,man what a tool! I have got to get a bigger shop! well got to get some sleep i worked last night.

Thanks for reading.
