Finger Joints Revisited
You may notice the shiny spots on the two longer boards -- one of the thrills I get from resawing is that you never know what the grain will look like inside the board. In this case there were a few knot or worm holes which I filled with a sawdust/epoxy mix. Personally, I think that small knots or defects can add to the beauty of the piece, just so we don't get that knotty pine, cabin look on the pistol cases. The next phase of the cases is to size the panels and cut the dado for them. I'm going out Monday to talk to a perspective client that's needing some book cases built -- see what I can do for them!
