Last Day Of April

April 30, 2013

84 degrees and sunny, windows are open in the studio and I’m making shavings. What could be better?

The drilling went well, now it’s time to glue in the butterfly and set the rod. This will be the last post for a while since I want to set the slab aside and let it settle before final flattening. Below is a few photos of the drilling and how the rod passes through butterfly. Also pictured is a mock-up of folded edge that will conceal rod end.

Hi Everyone

The main butterfly is now in place, next step is to drill for the steel rod that will pass through. The photo of the back side gives you an idea of how tricky this was to work with, very fragile & trick grain.
