« Part 18: Back to The Stretcher Part 19 of Barnsley Reproduction Build series Part 20: Slight Delay Via Nottingham »

I am been working very hard for the last month at my day job (have to knock that off), and so progress has been slow.
Our guild als0 had a sharpening day yesterday with Dick Christensen showing handsaw sharpening as well as chisel and scraper sharpening. Dick is the best sharpener that I know.
All of that plus spring coming and firewood cutting beckoning makes it tough to work on the table and I also picked up a second 8 inch jointer which is another long story.

I have the stretcher all cut and just need to bevel edges with a drawkife and assemble it. I will include photos in my next blog entry.

I am on the road now and this is a quick note to show the beautiful template that my friend Terry made me on his CNC. I was talking to him about routing the holes through the table top and he not only made me a template, but threw in two extras in case I damaged one. What a guy! Here is a screen shot of the top showing the butterfiies
and the template. More to come.

I hear you about the day job and life cutting into “shop time”.
