Welcome back my little woodworking buddies! I'm sorry to have been away for a few days, I have been working but not getting around to posting that work here. So, I'll get you caught up.
Would it not be better to use the strongest glue you can find for all your joinery so it never needs repairs? No. Because wood moves. Even though long dead, the wood continues to expand and contract with humidity changes; expand and contract, expand and contract, over and over and over. Pretty much forever. Anywhere the grain in the wood meets in different directions; like in the joinery, those pieces will expand and contract in different directions. A well made and properly glued joint will last for a lomg time, but eventually the glue will fail and the joint will become wobbly. Super-duper-extra-strength glue will make getting the joint apart for repairs that much more difficult because rarely does a joint experience *total* failure. Those parts that remain bonded together will break the wood, making the repair just that much more difficult. Using a repairable wood glue will make someones job much easier when that day comes.
Where was I? Oh yes...
Zadie and Dolly company for a bit. Sanding takes attention to detail and lots of patience, but it is *really* boring to watch. It can not be rushed, even though it is not our favorite part of woodworking. A piece that is poorly sanded will be poorly finished no matter how much attention to detail give to he finishing process.
Once all three coats are on I'll let the lacquer dry overnight. Tomorrow we'll finish it up, inspect it and once I'm satisfied all is well, deliver it.
See you then!
