I made more progress on my saw till to day. It was a glorious day to open the garage door and work. Moses, the Wonder Dog, curled up in his hole in the yard and kept an eye on me.
First, I scrapped off the glue on my glued up panels. Final size was ~9″. The wood is alder (poor man’s cherry?)
Then I cut a a 1/32″ rabbet in the tail board to set the pin board in.
