Day 19 and 20

June 22-23, 2009

Monday and Tuesday I was filled with that happiness that has become of my relationship with wheatboard. It just never ceases to amaze me how much a material can warp and chip and just be down right nasty.
In the assembly room we had set up two work tables and cut two peices of mdf just big enough to create right angle jig on the table. This was to help us keep all the joints square without a problem. However this didnt end up helping us out too much due to the materials natural ability to bow in miltiple directions.
A typical assembly proccess would be to set up your exterior sides together at a right angle, check for square with a framing square, clamp, then glue and nail, and repeat, of course this gets tricky when you are putting together more than two peice and trying to get everything square.
