I made a lot of progress today. This build is progressing well
The redwood tops are now glued together and before sanding them smooth I reduce the area by sawing them to shape on the band saw.
And now the three backs are done, sanded to .80, marked for the braces. The sides are all thinned to .75 and cut to proper shape ready to be bent. Also the tops are all glued together and sanded to the thickness best for installing rosettes.
Here is how I trim the sides to shape. This sled slides on the table saw groove and does a nice job of trimming the sides to shape.
And then at 3:30 my friends judy, Rick and Chip arrived for our weekly jam. We are practicing for a gig we have coming up in the spring. We are working on an interesting mix of classical music, show tunes and even "Beer Barrel Polka. We play for an hour and 1/2, then socialize for a bit and go out for dinner, A nice weekly event.
