Building the Stand

Today I completed the construction phase by building the stand for Ira’s tray table set. The parts had been roughed out previously, so all I needed to do was trim them to finished size and shape them. I started with the handle because it requires the most attention in shaping it. Then I bored a pair of matching holes in the top of each foot and the bottom of each upright. These holes house a set of dowel pins that hold the side frames securely together.

Then I was able to assemble the basic frame. The final step was to cut the arms to shape, glue the retainer tabs in place sand the assembly smooth and install them on the stand frame.

And that does it. Construction is done. Time to run the third progress payment so we can begin finish sanding in the morning.

See you then,
