|Base Frame complete.|
|Leg Mortise & Tenons done.|
|Done! (just needs poly)|
|2 coats of Water-based Polycrylic + Paste Wax|
I think this took 2 weeks total. Not too shabby for me. I usually take a lot longer to make stuff, but Christmas is fast approaching.
The leg joint is really tricky to mark. Wow. What a pain :P Took me a couple days to get the four legs fitted into their mortises and I was really surprised they fit as snugly as they do. I expected more gaps.
I'm not sure if I'm going to add a vise. Maybe I'll put a planing stop on one end. Carolyn didn't care for the idea of drilling holes for pretend holdfasts. But this'll do as a:
- toddler-sized workbench
- drawing, Play-Dough, LEGO, arts & crafts, general activity table
- a standard, adult-size bench that can be repurposed for general use after my two sons get tall
