    Alternative strategy for glue squeeze out #123

    Simply remove all of the surrounding wood that may have been contaminated. I admit that Vaughns strategy of avoiding glue altogether is much less time consuming.

    However this allows me to indulge my raspy voice and abrasive personality

    Starting to look like something although still plenty of chances for it to go wrong.. I'm seriously hoping that the lack of diagonal bracing is not one of the things that can go wrong at this point.. Should know that by tomorrow once this glue up dries (#4 of 7 I believe depending on how you count), it does have a little side-side wiggle clamped.. but we'll see..

    I believe you vastly overestimate the quality of my joinery.. I admit to having used the gap filling qualities of epoxy on a couple of those joints in shameless an unapologetic ways. One of the unsung advantages of mediocre photography skills..

    Nice try, I will not be so easily tricked into revealing my secrets Its not a loom.... (we'll get there ). Lets say that if it did fail it would be "fundament"ally damaging to my good standing within the household....

    Another 3-4 hours of carefully removing glue residue (and some wood). Mostly sanded down to 150 on this part. Time to start making the other pieces.

    As I was afraid there was a little more lateral flex that I was happy with. Some glue blocks helped that more than I'd hoped. Not totally in love with that; a better solution would have been a couple of arched braces on each side, but I've have had to put those in when I glued up the stringers so (to do it properly)... I don't think it'll look too bad though.

    IMHO lots of good looking things have some side to side wiggle.

    Enjoy,

    White oak, at least I thought it was all white oak, one piece of red might just possibly have slipped in

    This is from my scrap stash I got from a furniture factories offcut heap so I have to sort it somewhat carefully as there is a mix of various woods that started in one big pile.
