Work Impediment

I picked up the glass for my flag box (went to the local u-frame-it store), fit it into the box and cleaned up the face frame.  Then I ran into a serious work impediment when I went to cut the backer board …

It’s in the high 20’s and apparently outside pussy cat has decided inside is a good place to be.

Cutting mitres for the Flag Box

I love using my Miller Falls mitre box along with my Tico Shooting Board.  Both make cutting miters fairly straight forward.  I milled down my curly maple to 1/2 inch and the interior poplar to 1/4″, then cut mitres all around.

Hope my mom likes the box when its all done.
