no previous part Part 1 of Dungeon Remodel, the drill til series Part 2: Clean a bench, install the til »

Ok, something a little different this time around. Had a bit of Pine leftovers..

Some fancy, most were not. I even found a 1×10 to add to the fancy stuff..1×10 x 4’....needed a way to make use of some of this lumber, rather than throwing it in the fire pit…hmm…

Over-flowing with braces…this old til has been out-grown….6 spaces, for 12 drills? I think I could do a bit better?

I could build a longer/wider til…..but where to set it?

Well, I could clear away all of this stuff, maybe rearrange a few things….meantime, need to figure out how much room this is going to take. Had two pine scraps that might be long enough for the bottom and top…and a couple for the sides..

I held these two sides against the bottom piece, and found a lean-back angle I liked. Then sawed the ends to that angle..The “top” rail needed some notches laid out..

I used one of the drills to set the spacing, so the top knobs would clear each other…came out at 10 drills…I think I can do with that…Hand saw to cut the notches..

Then a mallet and chisel to remove the waste..

Rather than take a chance on one of the “teeth” breaking off. I drilled each, and ran a screw all the way through.
Ran into a slight problem….laid out the corner joints bass-ackwards…so, had to add a filler block on each end of the rail….screws to attach both directions..

Actually made it easier to attach the rail to the sides. Tried a few drills in the slots..

Lot of weight there…screws were doing their job. Filled the til, and hung #11 on the end..

To keep Shop Cat from knocking this over, three screws were added to the base.
Had errands to run…water running across the floor, made a delay in the next step…
Stay tuned, part 2 coming right up..
