End frames came out of the clamps today....and one post popped right off..:angry:   More glue, and this time a few nails, to make sure it stays put.   Checked the location of where the bottom panel will hit the ends...wasn't enough room for a groove....so..

Panel was cut to size, and notched to fit,,,,with a little bit of room for the solid wood to expand....Yes, I glued this mess up, today..

One clamp to pull things square, as usual.   One other pipe clamp was needed, as the F style ones didn't have enough hp to close a gap....

Laid out the parts for the lid, one of those long, skinny boards will get to make the two ends.   Whenever this thing gets off of my bench, that is...bandsaw was needed to cut a thin sliver of maple....

Either the tongue was off-center, or the groove was....too much to plane away....will glue the sliver  to match the gap, then plane it smooth along with the rest of the corners.  

Soo, leaves tomorrow to get things done...Tuesday is Lab testing day in Columbus OSU Heart Center....Wednesday is surgery day....Thursday I get to come back home, and let a hole in the leg heal up.....for about a week.....Three round trips to Columbus, OH.......for the van...lot of road trip.

Prayers for you all goes well, and for a speedy and full recovery.

You might take along some plane curls & wood glue in case the doctors need it.:lol:

Take it easy after that. Healing takes time. I'm prescribing Jack Daniels to help in the relaxation process ;)

Ah, if they're going in through the leg they'll probably just plug it up and tell you to not do anything strenuous for a while (you DON'T want that plug to come out).   My last two trips to the spa they went in through the right wrist and just stuck a bandaid over it when they were done.

 

Hope it turns out the way YOU want it.  :D

Front looks..ok.....laid out the main parts for a lid...

411069473_lidparts1.jpg.2712edbbec95931755dd64d1ab5214a3.jpg

Need to plane the panel flat, then turn it into a raised panel.....need to cut another part exactly in half...

657049338_lidends.jpg.fc5650d10c975b4ea9912318f2d67b4b.jpg

As this will be the two ends of the lid.    Need to joint the edges , before the Stanley 45 can plough a few grooves.

May try later this evening, IF the shop cools down a bit....."Start Time" in the morning?  be ON the road by 0500....:o:blink:

 

May be a short night, tonight...we'll see...stay tuned..:cowboy:

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
