no previous part Part 1 of What to do with a Walnut slab.. series Part 2: Trying to catch up, after other issues »

Note to self….IF one closes the shop for the night… NOT go back out there. tried to pull an all-nighter….not.

Anyway, laid out some curves and ran the bandsaws….tried the Texas bandsaw, still can’t follow a line…Bandsaw #2 seemed to at least try. Starting to get a few more toys down in the shop..

Drawknives, a spokeshave, couple low angle block planes…..Needed the spokeshave to remove the saw marks on the curves…

Got both lower stretchers curved. Flat will be the “top”and hold the shelf. Got two legs sawn and cleaned up..

Had to bring a few more chisels down to the shop…

Had to dust off the backsaw, as there were tenons to cut..

Tried to use that old woodie as a shoulder plane…didn’t quite work out. But, I did get a few tenons made..

Then used the tenons to layout the mortises they go into. Test fit as I went…

Maybe after a good night’s sleep, I can try to get the legs done, and make the rest of the connections? If my back will allow. BTW: The cussing has started…..R.Lee Ermy just blushed…stay tuned..

Best not to work when you’re tired—you’ll just make mistakes, and then have to fix them in the morning!
