« Part 3: Back on Track Part 4 of My 1st Attempt at Greene and Greene Style Furniture series Part 5: Rolling along »

Getting all the mortise and tenons to fit good is taking a bit longer than I thought it might. I have to admit that I’m actually enjoying the hand labor though. Being able to hear music while I’m working is a nice change from the usual noise of machines. The joints are not quite as good as I’d like so I’m using Gorrilla glue which is space filling and will help make up for the sloppy joints. Anyways, here’s the first side glued up. Hopefully tommorrow I’ll get another side glued up and get the front and back on the following day.

those clamp pads are ingenious! I was just fighting with a few cutoff pieces I use to pad clamps these last few days to keep them from falling off as I was attempting to get the clamp on.
