Old Thresher’s – Day 3 – Logs and Dovetails

Posted by on Sep 1, 2013 in Events, Urban Timbers | 0 comments

What a great day! I’ve been horse trading all week for some logs to mill into slabs and the first one arrived this morning. It’s a good looking 30″ x 10′ walnut that was salvaged by a local lawn and tree service.

At the bench today we spent a lot of time talking, but we still managed to get the sides dovetailed to the bottom.

People had to stop and watch as Jessie chopped her first dovetails.

It was a lot of fun to watch her drive home that first joint… She’s visibly anxious at first, but that changes pretty quickly. So glad we got it on film!

And the result…
