Anywho...since I shot my mouth off about sharpening, here's a big, fat, glaring error to look at so that we all know that this beginner doesn't think he's an expert just because he has the internet at his fingertips...
|I glued the shelf in backward. There's a tiny bevel that was meant to be on the backside. I spose that's what I get for doing it at 4:30 a.m. before I have my coffee. Just because I'm a morning person doesn't mean I don't need my coffee.|
|If you look at the bottom-right of that tail, you'll notice the plug. That is something that I want to get away from doing as I get better at this. The plug covers up the gap left after cutting the groove for the back.|
There's a few more things to talk about with this box, and I'll get around to it. The finish is mostly done, just needs wax. Next up is to make the cleat to hang the box. Lots of lessons learned, and ideas to do it all better the next time. I hope the next time is sooner, I don't want to go months and months between projects. Sometimes I can't help it.
