Workbench TWO – Day 11

The objective for today is the glue up for the second half of the top and get the leg parts milled and glued up.

The glue up for the top when great.  Learned a few tricks from the first had and did not man  handle the sections so much.  So got the glue done and all looks good.

Milling the legs went well.  I figured out I would have the 3 1/2″  thickness with tow boards, I just had to match some pairs.   All of these parts were milled to 5 1/4″ wide which was the desired with.

The impatience struck !!! I thought I would try to glue all for pairs of boards in my clamp setup, with NO dominos for alignment.  STUPID !!

I think I can salvage these to 5″ wide.  This should not hurt the project, it just teaches me yet another lesson on patience in woodworking.

I am learning from many sources, that patience and precision are two of the biggest factors to doing excellent work.

On to day 12.

      Absolutely… I just got in a hurry and stopped thinking. Cauls or dominos would have solved the problem.

      So lesson learned. I do plan to make some longer cauls. I plane a really good surface on one side and put clear packing tape on that side. Works really well.

    Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work
    due to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?

    Heya this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know
    if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting
    my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get setup?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure.
    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks

    One thing I would really like to say is that often car insurance canceling is a dreadful experience and if you are doing the right things as a driver you may not get one. A number of people do get the notice that they have been officially dumped by the insurance company they have to struggle to get more insurance after a cancellation. Low-cost auto insurance rates are generally hard to get following a cancellation. Knowing the main reasons for auto insurance canceling can help owners prevent burning off one of the most important privileges readily available. Thanks for the suggestions shared by your blog.
