Changing Station Day 3

May 23, 2011

Well I did manage to get a bit of shop time in today. My son-in-law came over and I showed him how to chop mortises and saw tenons. He did pretty good! He chopped 3 mortises and fit 3 tenons. Another short afternoon and one of the side frames will be joined. I think he had fun.

While he worked on that, I worked on making a back plate for my home thermostat. I took a small cut off from the baby changing station, ripped it open, then glued it book matched. Last week I had my wife pick up a piece of inlay from Woodcraft while she was in Parkersburg West Virginia. I cut grooves around the outside edge and set the inlay with miters at each corner. Now to let it set overnight then scrap it flat. Not too shabby for an afternoon.
