« Part 44: Bench Seat Day 1 In the begining. Part 45 of Furniture series Part 46: Bench Seat Legs day 3 »

Spent another enjoyable day outside

Jointing:-
I did all the timbers I had cut up.
Seat top sections

The associated parts for legs and framing components

One of the seat sections has had a resin hole filled so I left it there


(see the center section left hand side top)

unfortunately as I was thicknessing everything the repair job fell out.

I was a little disapointed the resin hole was full thickness and as I didn’t want to epoxy the hole removing it would mean the seat would be 20mm narrower.

Then to add to my probs one section was damaged on the end and had to be reduced to 1600mm

That just about did it for me so I packed up for the day and went off to consult with No2 son for his requirements.

Well – there’s your problem – that tape measure isn’t in inches. ;+P

Still looks like it’s coming together, even if not quite as planned.

Rob, Too bad about the resin loss however all is not lost. When I run into a repair that requires filling and I don’t want to mix liquid resin I go to this superior polyester
I don’t if it’s readily available for you but it’s not liquid and fills great. You can tint any color with pigment and perhaps get pretty close to your natural wood color. It’s activated with a hardener creme just like used in an auto body shop for filler putty.
Good luck – I’m sure others here have used this – - -

btw – go to Amazon and look at it

I’m guessing you got that off Abraham after he built the ark.

I’ll go and check on my computer… I might even find Abraham’s ark as I don’t think he made it watertight.

Wow! I know you DownUnder folks had a different measuring system but I didn’t know you had a different Bible!

You’ve got it all wrong ’acg and pottz (and the rest of my Earth)... In this world of diversification I woke up one morning, and questioned ”that” fictional book. Being a tad more educated than those Philistine script writers thousands of years ago without Wikipedia and Microsoft’s Word spell checker, I decided to pen the true and factual version of ”The Biball”.

It is fact that initially THE trump (not your Trump) approached Abraham about the ark, and Abe being an open minded metrosexual, consented to the request. He built his ark and marched on board 2 Tyrannosauri, 2 Velociraptors, even had a bloody big cage for 2 Pterodactyl, an even bigger fish tank for 2 Ichthyosaurs and the list goes on… history will attest to the fact that Abraham was not a good boat builder and without marine grade hull sealer, his boat didn’t make 4 days, let alone 40 days and 40 nights (my Biball, my duration)... QED!

PS…. Forensics verified that it WAS definitely Abraham from this reliable witness’s, photo-fit, of him wearing his indulgent self-image printed on his back,
