Part two on the magazine rack is going to be pretty short. There just wasn’t that much more left to do.
Here’s the foot after the glue has dried. I got plenty of squeeze out which I was shooting for because I wanted to make sure there was plenty of glue in the joint.
I hit the faces and edges with my random orbital sander. I lightly rounded the edges with some hand sanding.
Here’s another view after sanding.
After I was happy with the sanding I finished the foot with a couple layers of clear shellac. I tested the shellac out on a test piece and thought it matched pretty well though it was not perfect. Given there were variations in other parts of this piece I was ok with this. In reality if you’re not looking for it you probably won’t notice the slight mismatch.
Since this was such a short post I’ll post a preview of a future post. I found a saw at the flea market this weekend for a great price. It’s a Rockwell worm drive circular saw. It doesn’t look that good but it runs great. The previous owner cut the cord while using it and repaired the cord…poorly. Anyways, when I get around to cleaning it up I’ll be sure to post.
