Scraps to the rescue

7 Jan

I found some small boards well suited to the job and roughly jointed the mating edges. I was going for a rustic look and so I wasn’t concerned with planing the faces. I try to remember that before I became a woodworker I thought gaps in joints were more authentic looking, and tool marks added character- something that we are taught to avoid at all costs as woodworkers!
