no previous part Part 1 of Standing Desk of Cherry series Part 2: Leg work.. »

Well ths may be a long blog, or just a teaser…
Brought home a stack of “Good” lumber from a recent Road Trip. Helpped clean out a friend’s scrap pile..

Thinking this stack is mostly Cherry,

Well, there was a 6/4 slab in there, somewhere. Did a bit of resaw work on the bandsaw..

Blade wanted to wander around a bit,,we have ways..

In fact, I used three planes.

Each set a little differently. Jumbo Jack was set very coarse, the 0-7 not so much, then a clean up with the No.8…

Legs were set aside, as I resawed some aprons and stretchers. Needed the planes to remove the saw marks and joint the edges..

Great, now we have figure.

Well, this morning, I decided the front and bak aprons were too long. Cut them to 26” in length. Laid out for some tenons…

As I do tenons first. Bandsaw again..

Blade was having issues, was trying to burn it’s way along..

Time for some “Details”

Set up the Stanley 45 with a #23 bead cutter…

As I have these to do…

Stretchers got beads all four corners, aprons get a single one on the outer, bottom edge.

I also cleaned the “show” face of the aprons….I set the Stanley 45 aside until I need it ..later.

Well, getting a bit long-winded, and time for Lunch…..stay tuned, next episode is coming up….

-- A Planer? I'M the planer, this is what I use
