After arriving home this afternoon from visiting family Sat & Sun, I was able to cut the half dovetails and pins on the cross pieces.
I didn’t get all of the tails fully seated and I had one cross piece pin on the backside split off. I was able to tape and glue it back on, but it still irritated me. There are a few other oopsies here and there. Most people would not even notice them but I do. Honestly, at times I feel like throwing it in the fire place and burning it, but I’m not. Tomorrow I’m going to finish it with some linseed oil and furniture polish and then I’ll decide what to do with it. I’m definitely going to build a couple more, but I’ll start off with 1×6″ boards. Be safe and check back tomorrow.
