PART 2 OF STEP ONE (sounds like line dancing instructions)
I jumped ahead a bit and got the dutchmans cut.
The dutchman's are 3/4" hickory. The ones for the top are 4" long and the sides are 6" long.
They are going to remain in a natural finish to contrast the top once we oxidize the top.
So today I plan on unclamping the top, clean up the sides, hand plane the piece to flatten it out, and give it a rough sand.
Tomorrow...start mortising in for the dutchmans. Which is going to be pretty tedious because there are a lot to cut and they are pretty deep.
There's my weekend in a nutshell.
