Hi folks,

It’s been a while but here are some pics of the work I have been doing on the unit.

I am trying to do as much as possible by hand and while it is taking a long time I am learning heaps along the way.

I hope you like the pics.

Making sure I have measured the top correctly – phew I have

Another thing I learnt the hard way; splines should have gone the other way around otherwise the timber may split! Fingers crossed it holds up ok.
