What a bizarre day this was!
To start with I don’t feel well, but you don’t want to hear about that.
I got in at 7:00 this morning to get an early start on the day. I was greeted by an incredible amount of business e-mail that needed tending to before I got started.
The handle gets two rounds on the router table as I work up to the generous radius used to make this part comfortable in your hand. Then lots and lots of hand sanding as I smooth out all the curves and blend flat faces and curved edges into one another.
I sand the parts all the way up to 180 grit before assembling the stand.
I have mentioned having had trouble with FedEx. That situation came to a head today. I’ll spare you the details, but I think the situation has been resolved. It wasn’t pretty! Assurances were given, but we’ll see when I need to ship these tables out.
I also needed to scramble about to make arrangements to get Suzanne’s bottle stopper rack where it needs to go by Christmas because FedEx never picked it up.
