« Part 11: Day 3 lots to report now. Part 12 of Red IronBark Adventures series no next part

OK on the home run now.

First up. Forgot to mention a process step, ... all the edges were rounded over

How is the polishing achieved

A small portable grinder converted to accept polishing wheels and my KA tools lady Guinevere
a stick of white polishing compound and a couple of specific wheels to do the job.

All working together to produce the final result.

Final assembly

Out with my trusty Kreg base

Used a rep band to hold the frame and sides together.

Then Beer O Clock

Hi Jon and Big Al

Always fun to waste time fooling about with wood that should have been in the fire pit long ago!

Send your design to Gottlieb and/or Albert and I’m sure they’ll give you a can of black, with green lettering paint as royalties.
