Glue up begins

I'll spare you the adrenaline rush that is hand-sanding and just jump right to the glue-up: even without the added complexity of the kickers and runners, this glue up is worth breaking down into stages.


Even more exciting than sanding and watching glue dry: wet coat #3 on the top.

I am getting into your project a little late - what wood is that? I like the color.

The top is cherry - the finish going on is clear so the color you see is the natural color of the wood.

The rest of it (legs and aprons) is soft maple which will ultimately be getting painted black.
