I think an outbreak of common sense has prevailed over the weekend as I was using the LN's to chop and pare this English Oak I'm working with at the moment. I've managed to push the thought of exchanging them for something a little more exotic onto the 'back burner'...and so far so good, it's on 'simmer'.
No chance then of turning it into a raging pan fire?..we shall see.
The fairies got to me on Saturday though. I'd been beavering away (as you do) taking a fettle here and and a smidgen there off the mortises (with the LN's...) on the stool and managed to get the seat joints fairly good, which I was happy with. Paring 30mm thick oak takes some concentration which on some occasions, is sadly lacking. I then decided to go in for a brew and returned later feeling a bit refreshed and more relaxed. I'd already marked out the tenons for the cross rail (from the mortises) and hatched the waste boldly using a blue biro, so in theory I was good to go to cut them on the bandsaw.
In theory. The first two couple of cuts went fine, spot on the line on waste side...
Then the fairies got to me...you know what's coming don't you?
The next two cuts, two mind... not just one, were on the wrong bloody side of the line!!..the sort of mistake that and ejit newbie would make...
Hell's teeth and buggeration!
