« Part 3: Back leg work, a glue up or two.. Part 4 of Standing Desk of Cherry series Part 5: Assembly time »

trying to get something done….had too many irons in the fire, bound to forget something….

Cross stretcher has been planed smooth, and a bead cut on all four corners.

Bought a set of carving knives, just to clean the beads up.

I removed the glued up side from the clamps, decided to “pin” the joints. Drilled a few holes..

A little glue into the hole, and drive a dowel through..

Coping saw to trim the excess dowel, block plane to smooth things out. Set this aside, for now.
Last leg needed three mortises chopped out. I doubled check where they were going with a quick dry fit..
Marked things out, finished the other two mortises, and yet another dry fit..

Got excited about the fit, forgot I needed to corner bead the outside corner of the leg…..and just glued things up..

Will be using this “Third Hand” again, methinks…

Set this down, and dry fit things again, to see how much of a PITA this will be..

Yep, will need a few more clamps. I also needed a measurement of sorts….

To locate how big a dovetail I will need to make. Then cut the tail….

So when the glue is cured I can cut the sockets, bead the leg, and locate enough hands to glue and clamp this mess together. I also checked the “false” top…

To make sure it will be long enough after trimming for square. Will need the Scrub Jack Plane to flattened the panel…...when I get rested up enough.

Maybe after Lunch, I might wander back down to the shop, and see what other “Misadventures” I can get into..
Stay tuned…
