« Part 12: Up date to the Project.. Part 13 of That OddLots Ad series Part 14: Making the top, part 1 »

Waited until after lunch to start in on this…mess. Searched all through the house, and the shop…looking for c clamps of any sort….I think they may be related to pencils…both seem to ran away and hide. Managed to track down a pile of the critters..

Even cut a few cauls….might need a couple?

And made sure there was enough glue…hate to run out in the middle of things ( brand new bottle sitting off to the side, just in case…Ok..first item..the bottom rail…took a couple tries to get it into the vise..the way I needed it to be..

Assembly will be from the bottom up…and I am working from the “inside” of the frame…seemed easier to clamp things…

About halfway done….wasn’t much cussing, either…that would soon change..

Getting that top rail to fit was a royal PITA. Finally had to use a pipe clamp, and a couple f style clamps to push and pull things to where they would fit….Center two were the problem…..then pulled everything into as close to square as i could…and added a couple more clamps..

All the while watching that big pile of clamps get lower, and lower, until..

Looks like I need to shop for c clamps on the next rust hunt?

This episode was about the frame getting glued up…there was a second episode in the shop, today…
Stay tuned
