OK, table base #2 is in the clamps. Everything went fairly smooth today as I prepared the rails and fitted the tenons. That was until I started to glue up. I was running out of day and broke cardinal rule #1. NEVER RUSH.
The glue up itself went well. However, when I went to verify square I spotted my error. Take a look at the photo of the inside of the top end rail. Notice anything missing? Yep, you guessed it. No turn button mortises. CRAP! So tomorrow I will reinforce rule #1 while I balance the table base on its end and try to chop the missing turn button mortises.
Its not the end of the world, just a minor setback. I knew I was getting too cocky and something would take me down a notch.
A minor hiccup and easily corrected. At least you have the room to swing a mallet while you chop the mortises.
Yep, its an easy fix. Aggravated with myself that I made the error though.
