    Dear lord, this is going to take me a long time, isn't it.

    20 pieces has taken 2 hours!

    Or the lot will pop up when water gets underneath them from spills going under the cabinets.

    That brioche looks amazing.

    Fresh yeast is so much nicer to bake with than the dried stuff.

    And all day today (apart from a run out to get more glue) glueing them.

    I've finally finished cutting up little bits of wood. What a lot of not much fun and sawdust.

    Tomorrow, the glue up starts.

    Did you glue to the base at the same time as gluing the pieces when you did yours?

    I'm wondering how to make this less of a fiddle.

    Wedging some of that janky rockwool between the pipe and floorboard might stop the creak.

    Started making a desk top today, copying the @Soul herringbone desk.

    Discovered that my table saw is skew af, and the riving knife is a liability.

    In straightening it up, I discovered it's all but impossible to square the blade to the table, as somewhere along the line the chassis holding the saw to the tabletop has been bent. So I didn't bother, as I can square it to the fence well enough.

    I just took the riving knife off, as it was bent & again, all but impossible to make parallel to the blade.

    I did make a zero clearance insert, though, and built a fence & zero clearance base for my chop saw (as I won't be able to make a usable cross-cut sled on the table saw).

    In hindsight, I should have cut the radius first, then cut the straight bits - as it is, I'll have to feather in the curve with a bit of sanding.

    Next up - squaring up the miter saw & chopping up the strips into 4x1 lengths, then a whole lot of gluing up.

    No set amount of time, but probably 2 - 3 hours.

    tried heating up a needle and melting a hole

    Drill bits are far easier to use* & far less likely to jam into the nail bed.

    * by hand. Don't actually use a drill.
