After the sanding was all done, I attached the spreaders to the legs this extra long screws. The long screw are because the srew are going into end grain on the spreaders and end grain tends to tear out more easily. To fight this tenancy I use deeply fluted wood screws that are extra long to reach deep into the wood and hold fast.
We’ll get to that next time.
Well, I have pictures for you, but Blogger/Picasa is again telling me they can not upload the photos. I'll try again tomorrow.
