Monday – Retainer Screws

OK, wacky week is over for another year and it’s back to work as usual in the Smoky Mountain Woodworks workshop.

Being Monday, I spent the morning doing bookwork.

The afternoon was spent drilling countersunk pilot holes in the glass retainer strips and inserting 132 brass screws to secure the strips in place.

Why so many? Because the glass panels that these strips will hold in place are large and heavy and I don’t want these strips letting go and allowing the glass to fall out. If this were for a local delivery I wouldn’t be so obsessive, but since it will be bouncing along in a semi as it travels to Rhode Island, I want to be sure nothing pops loose.

That’s it for today, see you tomorrow.
