    coffee table progress

    busy day today! all the stuff with the foot stool, and now to the coffee table. today i checked all the parts, and refined the fit of all the tenons to thier mortises. the breadboard end came out a lot better than i expected, and i will be using ebony plugs on the ends to cover the 4 screws on each end. the ebony was cheap, i got it out of the odds and ends bin at our local woodworking store, and being the right size, and the right price ($3), who am i to argue? i have cut all the plugs and a few extras for testing. i've set up a test piece of cherry with a mahogany plug to see how it will look with the finish. once i had all the tenons finessed, i put it all together to see how it looks, and i think it looks pretty good, and i can't wait to see it finished. reluctantly, i disassembled everything, and glued up the top (using the "b" words), and i should be able to take it out of the clamps, and sand it a good one, then fit the breadboard ends. also, on thursday and friday, i received the clock face and movement for the grandfather clock. don't worry larry, i'll be posting progress on that project pretty soon...

    thanks rennie!

    allen, i'm hoping (weather permitting (or as my wife says, dios quieres) to get the sanding done tomorrow. if i can get it done early enough, i could get the blo on it by tomorrow night, and start the shellac part on monday.
