New Camp Bed
- I'm applying the finish to the
bed today ( Minwax Early Ammerican )
I'm down to the gloppy goo in the bottom
of the can and I've got two pieces left
I'm gonna use a water based poly to protect
it from the humidity at Pennsic
Artemisia ( my wife ) will be starting the
canopy section soon....
Pictures will be up as soon as it's done.
- Why, if I have never cut either joint by hand, am I making comments on
their relative difficulty? Because I have cut enough joinery (by hand &
machine) and carved enough wood to know the relative difficulty between
the execution of the two joints.
No, the box joint is not period - yes, the dovetail is. That question
has been answered repeatedly over the last several days. The question
of whether the box or dovetail was easier to cut by hand was then
posed, to which I thought I would interject a bit of humor. Had I known
that I would then be called on my "experience" as to whether or not I
was quallified to answer the question (regardless of my experience in
working and carving wood), I would have kept my fingers off of the
keyboard and allowed you to continue to argue this non-period question
Argue on, I'll not interject again.
