More updates on the serving table redo from recycled piano parts.
Ive cut all the substrate material except for the top and bottom self. Ill cut them to size when Im ready to. Too many parts in the shop at the moment.
Ive pressed the veneers for the drawer front/front end carcass panels to their substrate. I used polyurethane for this. The larger press jobs ill use Epoxy since I need more open time. Ill need to make convex curved clamping beams for the larger press jobs since they dont fit into the press. (Will make sense when it comes to that stage through images)
Carcass parts are roughly sanded. And the dry run has passed. Ill be gluing them up tomorrow with epoxy.
I also made my own floating tenons. I machined flutes into them since they act as glue channels forcing the epoxy through them giving a stronger bond right through the whole join.
Tomorrow ill be gluing up the top and bottom of the carcass and will glue the backing veneers to their substrate. Ill also cut the end carcass panels from the main drawer front panel and start to further machine them. I wont cut the drawer front to size till the carcass is fully done.
Stay tuned for further updates.
Some days it's just TOUGH to remain optimistic and motivated when things at work aren't going so well.
The past few weeks has been a battle to treat my colleagues with love because everything seems to just get on my nerves!
This is such a timely reminder to always do good even through the dark days.
How has your week been?
