Don’t miss Part 1 – gathering the goods
Remember all that pretty wood I found?
This is another reason I love working outdoors. Wide open spaces for that dust to escape.
I’m personally NOT in love with this clamp style palm sander. The sand paper always flips out just when you don’t want it to. However if you get the right size sand paper kit, it does work better. The local hardware doesn’t carry the kit so I hand cut larger sheets. It really doesn’t work all that great.
I know. The more I build, the pickier I get. I may end up high maintenance yet!
Anyway, I hear orbital is the way to go. I’ll be checking into it. Oh. And did I tell you I want to also write a chapter on must have tools if the book flies? And why I like them and why I don’t? Ohhh yes. All I need now is a good solid tool sponsor and we’re off.
Isn’t this leg the coolest? No piece was the same as the other, just the way I like to stir the pot.
This guy is gonna be 12 feet long!
Rock steady. I couldn’t budge it.
I had the most fun EVER making this up as I went along all with wood I had collected. I could have purchased new for some portions in order to make the build easier, however I didn’t desire to. I wanted the scrappy look of reclaimed as much as possible. I received one small bit of advice on how to attach the legs but the rest was all me. It was just like putting blocks together and understanding why something went where. I do believe the world of framing is starting to click… YES.
