Starting 2016 with a bit of progress

I have been home the past two weeks but I have had family staying in our tiny house and I have been a bit burnt out so very little progress has been made.

I did start (but not finish) building a new steam box and I used the band-saw to mill straighter grained boards for my crest rails.


I also managed to octaganize the legs and taper two of them before I realized it would be easier to saw the tenon cheek before they were tapered.  I then sawed the cheeks for all three and shaped two of the tenon a before I realized the back stool legs are not tapered.  Luckily I have two extra blanks ready to go so these will be set aside for a chair.


All in all, it’s good to see progress.  Hopefully I can successfully bend a crest rail next weekend and get the undercarriage assembled.
