« Part 3: 1st panel glued up Part 4 of That OddLots Ad series Part 5: Side panels are done »

Ok, this morning, the computer was having “issues”....tried a few restarts…then a few scans….decided to head for the shop, until the dang thing is ready for work…..the computer, that is….

Ok, in order to work on #2 panel..#1 had to get out of the way. Clamps came off…nothing creaked, nor cracked…good sign? Lowere the panel a bit and clamped it to the side of the bench. Jack and jointer went to work..goal was to joint the outside edges..

These two seemed to be working well enough. A few final passes with the #7c..

Flip the panel over, and repeat…..then stash this panel over on a scrap of pine that was sitting on the floor by the saw til….out of the way…

Next..1×6 #3….was a bit rough to plane….we have ways..Millers Falls No.14, set a bit rough, to knock down the knot-filled high spots. Then the other two could take over….

So that once the low spots were the same height as the high ones…edge was shiny all the way….gap checking?

Had one spot in the middle….needed knocked down a bit. Once the filler liked the edge…marked these two as to where they will go together….then repeat for the fourth and last 1×6…then spread a bead of glue, and moosh the parts around….

Just the glue.. nothing else holding these in place..but..

Clamps and cauls again. Will let this sit until tomorrow…need to sweep the place, again..

Didn’t I just do this? Yesterday (shopping day) picked up a bug bomb….and “bombed” the shop….was getting tired of spiders, and their webs. Today? no bugs! Hope that will do the trick….
Once i can use the bench again, and get a “plan” drawn up….I can start on the webframes to connect these two panels, and hold the two center dividers in place….Maybe next week, I can start on two doors?

Stay tuned…

The fight has begun…..she wants a “rustic, weathered” ( painted) look…..and I don’t. Told her IF I thought is was going to be PAINTED..I would have been building with PINE…not Ash.
