Hall Tree update
Pocket holes, pocket holes, pocket holes..... I drilled like 40 pocket holes for the hall tree today. This is the first project that has required this many and boy do they get boring. Then I spent an hour sanding. All people in the videos that I watch always comment on how most of my woodworking time will be spent sanding and I am starting to understand it now. If everything goes according to plan then assembly will start on Sunday. I sanded the heck out of the 3 boards that I glued poorly. I got rid of the ridge but now it's kinda wavy and almost bowed looking. If it was going somewhere that it would be seen I would go buy some more wood and redo it. But seeing as how I am on an artificial time limit I am going to leave it as is.
